She just can't catch a break with this one, can she?!
Rihanna is once again facing legal trouble for the music video for her single, S&M, just four months after David LaChapelle filed a lawsuit claiming she ripped off his work!
Apparently, 19-year-old Phillipp Paulus has alleged that a sequence in the clip, which featured the pop star held against a wall with plastic wrape and black tape in X-marks, directly rips off a series of fashion photos he did called Paperworld!
They attempted to settle with Universal Music Group, but after the agreement fell apart, Paulus now plans to sue.
His lawyer, Philip Jakober, explains:
