Ariana Grande sued by photographer for posting 'Sweetener' photo to Instagram

Quote

 

Ariana Grande is being sued for copyright infringement by a New York-based photographer who claims the pop star posted two of his pictures on her Instagram account without permission.

It is the latest instance of a celebrity facing allegations of copyright violations for photos posted on their social media accounts.

Photographer Robert Barbera filed the lawsuit against Grande and her company, Grandari, on Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. He claims the "thank u, next" singer's Instagram post "infringed" on his rights.

The post showed Grande in two side-by-side images wearing an oversized gray sweatshirt and thigh-high boots while carrying a clear bag with the word "Sweetener" on it.

The 25-year-old singer and actress posted the photo in August with the caption "happy sweetener day" to celebrate the release of her album, "Sweetener."

This is ridiculous... and even worse if the photog gets away with it. She should file a restraining order against him for this bs.

I never understood how the paps can sue for someone using a picture they took of a celeb but celebs can’t sue them for taking pics of them without there consent :cm:
