Nicki Minaj Sued By Paparazzi Over Instagram Posts
Nicki Minaj is the latest celebrity who has been targeted by the paparazzi in a copyright lawsuit after she posted images of herself to Instagram.
According to The Blast, two agencies have filed a lawsuit against Minaj for posting pictures without asking for their permission.
The lawsuit states that Minaj used numerous copyrighted images they took and shared them without permission or authorization to her large fanbase.
The agency claims that Minaj used multiple of their images on her Instagram account without paying to have them licensed. They add that they never even gave her permission to post them on her @nickiminaj account. The infringement allegedly occurred in September 2017 and September 11, 2018.
They claim that by posting the images to her 91 million followers, their value is diminished significantly.
Other celebrities who have dealt with similar suits include Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, JLo, Ariana Grande and many more!
