In a statement obtained by E! Online, AZA said: "I'm shocked and surprised that these people wanted to sample my lyrics on 'Call Me Maybe'.
"They didn't ask me for permission, they just stole it. That's why I filed this lawsuit."
However, a spokesperson for Carly has strongly denied the allegations, stating that the Good Time singer hasn't even heard AZA's Hunky Santa.
They said: "This is completely false and [Jepsen's] lawyers will deal with this. Everyone knows [she] is a songwriter. She is not spending a lot of time listening to Ukrainian radio."
