Celebrity Fashion: Photographer sues Ariana Grande for $50K after she posts his pictures on Instagram

Celebrity Fashion:

The latest in a line of celebrities caught using pictures without permission, singer Ariana Grande is being sued over images she allegedly posted on Instagram without permission.

Two pictures she posted to promote her album ‘Sweetener’ at the end of last year were liked over three million times, and photographer Robert Barbera is claiming $25,000 for each of them in damages because Grande allegedly didn’t have the rights to use them. Below is an Instagram post from Barbera with one of the images Grande allegedly posted without permission.

New York-based Barbera describes himself as a celebrity photographer, supplies paparazzi images to agencies such as Corbis and Splash News and goes under the name ‘Papculture’ on Instagram. He has an extensive collection of street-shot pictures of music, fashion and film stars on his page and has over 37,000 followers of his own.

The pictures Grande allegedly used without permission feature her holding a bag with ‘Sweetener’ written upside down on it, and she posted them on the day her album was released. She has since taken the pictures down but not before many of her 154 million followers had viewed and liked them.

According to the London Evening Standard, other recently sued by photographers for using pictures without permission include Jennifer Lopez, Gigi Hadid, 50 Cent, Jessica Simpson, and Khloe Kardashian.
