Haters really are gonna hate. Hate so much they want to sue you for $42 million.

R&B artist Jesse Graham filed a lawsuit against Taylor Swift for similarities between Swift's 2014 'Shake it Off' and his song 'Haters Gonna Hate.'

Both songs contain the phrase, "Haters gonna hate, players gonna play."

"Her hook is the same hook as mine," he told Daily News, claiming Swift uses it about 72 times in her song. "If I didn't write the song 'Haters Gone Hate,' there wouldn't be a song called 'Shake It Off.'"

He originally only wanted a selfie with Swift, but her camp denied that request.

Here are the songs. Too similar?

Our verdict?

Just shake it off, Taylor.
