NOT AGAIN!: Rihanna Accused Of Stealing From Another Photographer
Earlier last year, Rihanna was sued by photographer David LaChapelle for stealing and copying his work in her “S&M” music video directed by Melina Matsoukas. The singer ended up settling out of court for an undisclosed amount. Now, she’s being accused of stealing concepts from fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo for her “You Da One” video. Ironically, directed by? …You guessed it!! Melina Matsoukas.
According to AceShowbiz:
“The scenes in question are the ones which feature Riri rocking a bowl haircut and wearing a flesh colored bodysuit. Shadows of stripes and dots form unique patterns across her skin while she’s writhing on the floor. The visuals are identical to a nude photo shoot Solve did for ‘Numero 93’ in 2008.”
The only visible difference between the two shoots is the hair color.
Neither Rihanna or Melina has responded to the allegations.
