It looks like Rihanna might have another lawsuit coming her way!

Last week the singer released her You Da One video and it bares a striking resemblance to famous photographer Sølve Sundsbø's work.

In case you forgot, David LaChapelle sued RiRi earlier this year for copying his photography concepts in her S&M music video. The lawsuit was settled in October for an undisclosed amount of money.

Coincidentally both the S&M and You Da One music videos were directed by Melina Matsoukas.

Maybe it's time to start working with directors that have original ideas.

What do U think???

Filed under: RihannaLegal Matters

Rihanna SM Lawyer

The lawsuit involving David LaChapelle claiming Rihanna ripped off his work for her S&M video has survived its first test and is moving forward.

A New York federal judge found the themes in her video non-copyright material while the "angles, poses, and lighting" in David's photos are completely protected.

The judge also heard evidence that the storyboards used for her video actually contained his photographs.

So now
