David LaChapelle Sues Rihanna Over Music Video
By Photography / IO, 16 Feb 2011
Photographer David LaChapelle has filed on Monday a suit that alleges Rihanna infringed on his images in the R&B singer’s music video for the song “S&M”, reports The New York Times.
The suit asks for US$1 million in damages and argues that the video is “directly derived from and substantially similar” to LaChapelle’s photographs, the Times reports. A total of eight images were identified in the claim, including one of a dominatrix walking a man on a leash and a woman in latex headgear, the Times said.
LaChapelle had worked with Rihanna before and calls the matter purely a “business one”, the Times said.
