The British shooting star Dua Lipa, 25, has in recent years become one of the world’s most famous artists. She has over 68 million followers on Instagram, where she shares her life daily.
But now the star is being sued for an Instagram photo she posted on February 7, 2019. And it is not a small sum. According to the lawsuit, the successful artist must pay as much as 150,000 dollars, which corresponds to approximately 1.3 million kronor.
The reason for the lawsuit is that the photo was taken by a paparazzi photographer, and that Dua Lipa does not have permission to publish it, reports the BBC.
“She knows she’s making money on the picture”
Integral Images, which is behind the lawsuit, believes that Dua Lipa makes money on the image, as she uses her Instagram to market her music. They claim that she intentionally posted the image without permission, aware that she would make money on it.
The company is also requesting an agreement that will prevent Dua Lipa from doing the same thing in the future, according to the BBC.
In the picture, which has now been deleted, Dua Lipa is standing in line at an airport, with a big hat on her head.
“I will live under big, fluffy hats for the time being,” the star wrote under the picture.
More stars have been sued
Lipa is not the first artist to be sued for money for posting paparazzi photos on Instagram. Gigi Hadid, Liam Hemsworth and Khloe Kardashian have been in similar situations.
In 2019, artist Jennifer Lopez, 51, was sued by the companies Splashy News and Picture Agency after she published a picture of herself and her expo boyfriend. Alex Rodriguez on Instagram. The companies later dropped the lawsuit, according to BBC.
