(CNN) - The battle between Bumble and Tinder is heating up.

On Thursday, Bumble filed a countersuit against Tinder's owner for $400 million.

Two weeks ago, Tinder's parent company "Match Group" filed a lawsuit against Bumble, accusing it of patent infringement and stealing trade secrets.

Bumble calls the lawsuit baseless.

Bumble counter-sued suggesting that Match Group went on the offensive after Bumble turned down a buyout offer.

A spokesperson for Match Group has not commented about the new suit.
