Demi Lovato could be in some hot water after indie band Sleigh Bells took to Twitter on Monday to call out the singer for allegedly sampling two of its songs.

The musicians claim that the pop singer’s new track “Stars” takes from their songs “Riot Rhythm” and “Infinity Guitars,” which they released in their 2010 debut album “Treats.”

"@ddlovato Demi Lovato flattered you guys sampled Infinity Guitars & Riot Rhythm for 'Stars' but we were not contacted," Sleigh Bells tweeted. "Gotta clear those."

Lovato has not responded publicly to the allegations, however, her representative issued a statement to Fox News Latino from the song's producers, Carl Falk and Rami, on Tuesday.

“We did not use any samples in Demi Lovato’s song 'Stars,'" they said. "Demi was also not involved with the production.  She only wrote top line.”

Here are the tracks to compare.

This is not the first time Lovato has been accused of ripping off another artist in her new album “Confident.”

Upon the release of “Cool for the Summer,” fans started to claim that in sounded a lot like Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” and Jessie J’s “Domino.”

The former Disney star took to Twitter to deny the allegations.

"Sounds nothing like it and with all the advances we've made in the LGBT community..." she wrote. "I think more than one female artist can kiss a girl and like it."
