Beyonce has been accused of plagiarising a Belgian choreographer's video in the clip for her new single 'Countdown'.

A video has surfaced online showing shots from the star's video cut with similar dance routines in Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's own video. Scroll down and click below to watch the clip.

The choreographer accused Beyonce of stealing her work, reports Aceshowbiz.

"I didn't know anything about this. I'm not mad, but this is plagiarism," she said. "This is stealing. They took pieces from Achterland and Rosas danst Rosas. It's a bit rude, I must say."

She added: "What's rude about it is that they don’t even bother about hiding it. They seem to think they could do it because it’s a famous work."

Beyonce caused further controversy recently, when she was accused of wearing a prosthetic baby bump during the MTV VMAs.
