Katy Perry has been ordered to pay a Christian rapper $550,000 (£454,000) of her own earnings from her 2013 song Dark Horse by a US court.
That amount is a part of the $2.7m (£2.2m) awarded to gospel artist Flame, who has successfully sued the star for copying one of his songs.
Her label, Capitol Records, will have to pay most of the total amount.
The singer’s legal team say they plan to appeal, if the case is not dismissed pending a defence motion.
Earlier this week, a US court found Katy, her producers and songwriters guilty of copyright infringement.
