Wilson responds to 'Dupree' accusation

By
Owen Wilson has replied to Steely Dan's allegations that his latest film You, Me and Dupree has plagiarised one of their songs.

The band recently posted a cutting letter detailing their complaints on their official website, but the actor reportedly "flat out denies" their claims.

According to the Associated Press, Wilson said in a statement: "I have never heard the song 'Cousin Dupree' and I don't even know who this gentleman, Mr. Steely Dan, is. I hope this helps to clear things up and I can get back to concentrating on my new movie, Hey Nineteen."

'Hey Nineteen' happens to be the title of another hit song released by the band during the 1970s.
