Rihanna is being sued by a German photographer over her ‘S&M’ music video.
Philipp Paulus believes that portions of the video were copied from his 2010 fashion photo series ‘Paperworld‘, reports the Daily Mail.
‘Paperworld’ features a woman trapped by transparent plastic wrapping with black Xs taped across.
Paulus, who previously launched legal action in 2011, claims that Universal Music Group admitted some similarities between the two but the record label did not make a suitable offer to settle out of court.
Rihanna’s music video could be banned from being broadcast across the world, if Paulus’s lawsuit is successful.
