Dua Lipa sued: In a recent major development, pop singer Dua Lipa is being sued after allegedly putting a paparazzi photo of herself on Instagram feed without permission.

According to United States court documents, the star was captured by paparazzi at an airport in February 2019 and later posted the shot with her fans on social media "without permission or authorisation". The paparazzi firm is now seeking $150,000 in damages and has also asked for a jury trial in the matter, it has been claimed.

According to Billboard, the company has filed an eight-page lawsuit against the 25-year-old over the post and claimed that she had "knowingly" shared the photo to social media without permission.

The songwriter had shared the image on her account and the firm Integral Images claimed that the Levitating singer profited from the photo, as her Instagram feed used as a marketing tool for her music.

“I’ll be living under big fluffy hats until further notice,” the singer captioned the photo which has now been removed, BBC reported. The said company is also seeking an order preventing the singer from further acts of infringement, as well as legal costs. They had applied to register a copyright for the images, and the request was granted on 20 February 2021 - after Lipa's Instagram post - according to records from the US Copyright Office.

Several celebrities including Gigi Hadid, Liam Hemsworth, Khloe Kardashian, Ariana Grande, and Justin Bieber are some of the big names who have faced legal suits from paparazzi firms in the past.
Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Dua Lipa will be making her acting debut soon with a spy thriller franchise that is being directed by Michael Vaughn, according to Deadline. It was also confirmed that stars including the likes of Henry Cavill, John Cena, Sam Rockwell have been roped in for the film titled Argylle.
