Annie Leibovitz Is Getting Sued…AGAIN!

| Filed under: Legal Matters

Photography is a becoming a rough gig for Annie Leibovitz.

Annie was sued on Friday by a fellow photographer for using his photographs without permission.

Italian photographer Paolo Pizzetti filed in a federal court in New York, claiming she used his pictures as backgrounds in a Lavazza coffee ad campaign from last year:

"Pizzetti says Leibovitz hired him to shoot photographs of scouting locations for an ad campaign for Lavazza, the Italian coffee company, in April 2008. He said he photographed the Trevi Fountain in Rome and Plaza San Marco in Venice and images of other sites for her and sent her the images digitally."

These images, according to Pizzatti, "perfectly match the scouting images he shot" and now he is seeking $150,000 per infringement.

Considering that Annie is already in the hole for $24 million dollars, we hope this isn't true.

Not only will she be even more broke, but she will be sham!

Say it isn't so, Annie?!

    Re: jonesz – I hate to say it, but jews do seem to be the worlds biggest problem, and dont get me wrong there are nice ones out there but they will do anything for money. the love of money is the biggest sin.

    She's digging herself in deeper. Did she really think that a professional photographer wouldn't recognize his own work when she used it in her campaign?

    Desperate people do desperate things. I'm sure there will be more to come out of this whole thing.

    So declare bankruptcy already so we don't have to read about you anymore.

    I think all her problems started when she hooked up with crazy Susan Sontag. Now Susan's dead and Annie is still a mess.
