Dua Lipa sued (again) for posting paparazzi picture of herself (again)

Dua Lipa might need to chill with the Instagram photos.

She’s in some legal hot water (again) for a recent post.

According to Billboard, the “Love Again” singer is again facing a lawsuit over a photo she posted of herself.

The problem is, once again, that she doesn’t exactly own the photo.

It was taken by the paparazzi.

Billboard quotes the complaint:

“Without permission or authorization from Plaintiff, Defendant volitionally selected, copied, stored and displayed each of Plaintiff’s copyright protected Photographs”

Apparently, the plaintiff even tried to settle the situation outside of the courtroom.

Meaning he tried to slide into her DMs.

Unfortunately, communication between the two parties “slowed and eventually stopped.”

So Dua probably put them on “block.”

And after receiving the official complaint, stopped all communication.

The plaintiff is seeking damages related to any profits Dua Lipa made on the images, and an order stopping her from doing it again in the future.

For what it’s worth, Dua deleted the photos from Instagram.

Dua Lipa sued (again)

This isn’t the first time Dua Lipa has been sued this year.

In March, two songwriters from the 1970’s came forward alleging her song “Levitating” is a rip-off.

What’s interesting about this case… is that Dua may have already shot herself in the foot.

In the new lawsuit, L. Russell Brown and Sandy Linzer allege “Levitating” is “substantially similar” to the Cory Daye song “Wiggle and Giggle All Night.”

According to the complaint:

“The notes move in the same direction with evenly matched intervals or ‘steps,’ and almost identical rhythms”

But after listening to the song, there’s really very little in common between the two.

Sure, you could make the case Dua Lipa built Future Nostalgia on a very “disco” vibe.

But aside from a general vibe, there’s really nothing else in common between the two songs.

Dua Lipa Sued (again) (again)

Back in February, the reggae band Artikal Sound System filed copyright proceedings against Dua Lipa, alleging “Levitating” was lifted from their song “Live Your Life”

And on first listen, it does sound similar:

The chord progression is nearly right on, but the track sounds significantly more laid back.

The only portion that shares similarities are in the chorus, so it’s nowhere near as “identical” as the band claims.

While the lawsuit is still ongoing, it appears Dua’s got an ace up her sleeve.
