Ariana Grande is facing a lawsuit for posting paparazzi photos of herself on Instagram.

The New York-based photographer has accused the singer of using his images on social media without his permission or paying him for it. 

The images, which have since been deleted from her instagram, had garnered nearly 3.4 million likes back in August 2018.

According to reports, Robert Barbera has demanded either the profits made from the photos, or $25,000 for each pic that was posted - whichever amount is greater.

This isn't the first time that paparazzi have sued celebs for posting their images on social media. Khloe Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, Jennifer Lopez, and Jessica Simpson have all faced similar situations.
