American singer, actress, dancer and producer, Jennifer Lopez has been sued to court by a professional photographer, identified as Michael Stewart for posting photo he took. Lopez is facing a big fat lawsuit by a photographer who took a photo of her for posting the picture on her Instagram page
According to the lawsuit, Stewart had taken a photo of Lopez earlier this year which he licensed to a website back in June only to later discover the shot was posted on her Instagram.
It was learnt that Stewart is aggrieved over the move as he claims neither Jennifer Lopez, nor anyone on her team, asked his permission to use his photo.
Demanding to be paid for the photography, Stewart is suing Jennifer and her production company, Nuyorican Productions, for copyright infringement. That means he wants all profits she made from the photo, if any, or up to $150k in damages.
Jennifer Lynn Lopez (born July 24, 1969) is an American singer, actress, dancer and producer. In 1991, Lopez began appearing as a Fly Girl dancer on In Living Color, where she remained a regular until she decided to pursue an acting career in 1993.
For her first leading role in the 1997 Selena biopic of the same name, Lopez received a Golden Globe nomination and became the first Latin actress to earn over US$1 million for a film. She went on to star in Anaconda (1997) and Out of Sight (1998), later establishing herself as the highest-paid Latin actress in Hollywood.
Lopez ventured into the music industry with her debut studio album On the 6 (1999), which helped propel the Latin pop movement in American music.
With the simultaneous release of her second studio album J.Lo and her romantic comedy The Wedding Planner in 2001, Lopez became the first woman to have a number one album and film in the same week. Her 2002 remix album, J to tha L–O! The Remixes, became the first in history to debut at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200. Later that year, she released her third studio album This Is Me… Then, and appeared in Maid in Manhattan
