CELEBRITY Paparazzi

The "trend" of celebrities being sued by paparazzi for posting photos of themselves is in no way slowing down. Now Kim Kardashian is the latest target.

A photo she posted on Instagram back in October 2018 alongside her husband Kanye West (and which has since received 2.2 million likes) has been met with the ire of photographer Saeed Bolden, who says he didn't give permission for the photo to be used, nor was he compensated. As a result, he's suing for any profits she made off the post, plus punitive damages.

But Kardashian's not alone. In recent years, a number of celebrities have been sued over the same allegations. It may sound bizarre that the paparazzi, who are constantly on top of celebs, are the ones to sue for using their pictures. But social media has added an extra layer of complexity to copyright law, and it's still early days to understand what will happen next.

Various celebrities have been affected by this wave of "copyright trolling," including Jennifer Lopez, Gigi Hadid, and Ariana Grande. Click through this gallery to find out who has been sued over what.
