Singer Aza will file the lawsuit in LA claiming that producers tweaked her original song before adding Jepsen’s vocals.

Lyrics of Aza’s song include: “I like lots of hunky men and chocolate covered Bon Bons, I will make cookies for you.”

As well as: “I’ll be your sweetest lady, call me and here is my number” – possibly the source of Aza’s plagiarism claim.

The video features a bikini clad Aza dancing seductively in front of a Christmas tree as well as doing a strip tease for her ‘hunky santa’.

It has had less than 1,000 views on YouTube since it was uploaded last Christmas.

Aza told TMZ: “I'm shocked and surprised that these people wanted to sample my lyrics on their song. They didn't ask me for permission - they just took it.

“That's why I filed this lawsuit. When I first heard it on the radio, I was driving and almost got into an accident. I couldn't believe what I was hearing."

However a representative for Jepsen dismissed the claims saying: “This is completely false and lawyers will deal with this. Everyone knows Carly is a songwriter. She is not spending a lot of time listening to Ukrainian radio."
