Singer Dido is said to have fallen out with rapper Eminem over payment of royalties.

Sky News reports that the star has begun court proceedings against the D12 frontman, claiming £1m after he sampled her song 'Thank You' for his hit 'Stan'.

One insider is reported to have said that Dido had a lot to thank Eminem for, as 'Stan' helped catapult her to fame, while another said he was sure that the pair would resolve their differences.
