Johnny Depp and Jeff Beck are accused of stealing song lyrics from a poem

The 'New York Post' reports that Depp and Beck have been accused of plagiarism on their new musical collaboration. Last month, the pair released their album, '18,' just weeks after Depp won a high-profile defamation trial against his ex-wife, Amber Heard. According to 'Rolling Stone,' one track on the album features Depp reciting lines first spoken by convicted murderer Slim Wilson in 1964. The poems recited by Wilson were recorded by folklorist Bruce Jackson while Wilson was serving a prison sentence at Missouri State Penitentiary.
