Photographer Gets the OK to Sue Rihanna


Remember how impressed you were [just play along here] when Rihana's incredibly innovative and fresh new video for S&M dropped and your utter disappointment [I asked you to play along] when it turned out to be a total rip off of a concept by celebrated photographer David LaChapelle [click here if you missed that]?

Well Dave just got the go ahead to start preparing his multi million dollar lawsuit against RihRhi for copy catting...

From Page Six
Famed photog David LaChapelle can continue to develop his million-dollar copyright claim against pop star Rihanna.

In a ruling released yesterday, Manhattan federal Judge Shira Scheindlin said the surrealist shutterbug "successfully alleges" that the songstress, her record label and video director may have copied his provocative images for Rihanna's "S&M" video.

Scheindlin cited the "hot-pink and white striped walls," "women wearing frizzy red wigs" and "black tape wrapped around a man."

Nothing nowadays is original. All they had to do was ask permission to use his concepts.
