Ariana Grande gets sued again


Ariana Grande has been accused of lifting the work of a New York photographer for the second time in less than a year. The 7 Rings hitmaker has been slapped with a new lawsuit by Robert Barbera, who claims she illegally used one of his paparazzi snaps featuring the singer exiting a Manhattan building while wearing a white sweatshirt bearing the artwork for her Thank U, Next album cover.
In court papers obtained by The Blast, he states, (Grande) ran the Photograph on their Instagram Story on their Instagram Page to promote their brand and clothing by saying ‘My Merch Is So Cute and Comfy, Swipe Up To Get Da Look’ on the Photograph. Defendants did not license the Photograph from Plaintiff for its Instagram Page, nor did Defendants have Plaintiff’s permission or consent to publish the Photograph on its Instagram Page.
