Dua Lipa Sued for Posting a Paparazzi Photo of Herself on Instagram


Dua Lipa is facing a lawsuit over an Instagram Post.  The “Levitating” singer shared a paparazzi photo of herself on her Instagram account and Integral Images, the company that owns the copyright to the photo, is now accusing Lipa of “knowingly” sharing it “without permission or authorization,” according to BBC News.

The photograph was from back in February 2019 and was an image of herself waiting in line for a flight.

Integral Images says Lipa profited from the photo, as her Instagram feed acts as a marketing tool for her music.

Lipa has since deleted the post, but Integral Images is still seeking $150,000 in damages, a jury trial, and an order preventing Lipa from further acts of infringement.
