Ariana Grande's huge fan following on social media has resulted in likes and comments but a latest post shared by the pop singer found herself in a fix. Ariana's 154 million followers often look forward to her uber stylish pictures or upcoming music news. However, the singer recently shared pictures of herself on Instagram which backfired. Turns out, professional photographer Robert Barbera is suing the singer claiming copyright infringement.

The photos shared by Ariana of herself were clicked by Barbera, but the singer used the pictures without licensing them, reported E!News. In addition, Robert claims the singer didn't have his "permission or consent to publish the photographs" on her Instagram page.    

The pictures have now been taken down by the singer but looks like it was a little too late. As per the report, Barbera is now suing Grande for USD 25,000 which includes copyright infringement, attorney fees and costs, falsifying copyright management and statutory damages. 

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

The pictures in question date back to August 2018 and the singer had captioned the post as, "Happy Sweetener Day." In the picture, Ariana could be seen carrying a see-through bag which read 'Sweetner' also the title of her album. According to court documents, the post received more than three million "likes" before it was taken off social media, reported E!.

Given that Ariana's concerts are a huge sell out, it won't be too problematic for the singer to loosen her pockets for the said amount. Well, one thing's for sure. Ariana will definitely hit the 'share' button cautiously from now on.
