Gigi Hadid is in some hot water!

The 22-year-old supermodel, real name Jelena Noura, is under fire for allegedly using a photographer’s photo for her Instagram.

In the pic in question posted on July 12, 2016, G is seen out and about in NYC with curlers in hair and wearing an Adidas jacket, but with the logo modified to say her last name.

The snap, at the time of this publication, remains on the celebrity’s page, and it has garnered over 1.2 million likes. It is also linked to her Twitter page.

The lawsuit filed on Tuesday was filed by photog Peter Cepeda — who says he used “great technical skill and timing” to capture the moment — and alleges copyright infringement and other counts, and seeks unspecified damages.

According to The Wrap, the document reads:

“As a result of Hadid’s Post, numerous prominent, commercial, online publications copied and posted the Copyrighted Photograph, crediting Hadid or Instagram.”

So far, no comment from Gigi’s camp.
