Bruno Mars Being Sued By Photographer Over A Picture





Amore reports that Bruno Mars posted a picture of himself on his instagram from when he was a child. The photographer, Catherine McGann, claims she originally posted it on HER social media first. So she owns the copyright to the picture.

*) The picture gained more than 1.2 million likes
*) Bruno posted it without her permission
*) His label is also being sued for all the money that was earned from the photo

This isn't the first time a photographer has gone after a celebrity for a picture they posted of themselves on their social media.

In September of this year, Page Six reported Gigi Hadid was being sued by photographer, Peter Cepeda, for posting a pap shot of herself on her instagram. The picture also got 1.2 million and the photographer claimed he wasn't given credit. Celebrities earn money off the traffic they get on their social media accounts. So it looks like these celebrities will have to be more careful in the future about giving credit for pictures they use!
