Ariana Grande is being sued after she allegedly used a photographer’s pictures of her on social media without his permission.

Robert Barbera from New York has filed a lawsuit against the singer’s company, claiming the star violated copyright infringements when she posted two of his photos on Instagram last year.

In her post, Ariana spliced two of the paparazzo’s images side-by-side in which she was carrying a clear bag emblazoned with the word ‘Sweetener’ –  the same title of her fourth studio album.

According to court documents filed in New York, the post was liked by 3,392,079 of her followers.

Although the images in question have since been deleted from Ariana’s Instagram account, this similar follow-up post remains:
