Update: Michelle Phan's legal team has issued the following statement. "Ultra’s lawsuit against Michelle Phan lacks any merit. Ultra agreed to allow Michelle to use the music and Michelle intends to fight this lawsuit and bring her own claims against Ultra.
Michelle's intention has always been to promote other artists, creating a platform for their work to be showcased to an international audience. Kaskade, whose music has been featured in Michelle's videos, has publicly defended Michelle against Ultra's claims and acknowledges the success he's gained from her support."
Thanks for all the love and support :) I've been through tougher times...and I know there is always a silver lining after a storm. IRLY ALL!— .｡Michelle Phan.｡ (@MichellePhan) July 19, 2014
Fans were quick to back her up.
@MichellePhan the music is extra. And even one their artist thanks you and say you got them more exposure than the label did which is funny.— Arielle Hernandez (@MissArieBabyNyc) July 19, 2014
@MichellePhan you got the support of everyone behind you!— Mike Ross (@ThatMikeRossGuy) July 19, 2014

Here's hoping Ultra Records and Michelle Phan can work through this bad romance with minimal mascara-stained tears on both sides. (TMZ)
