Last week, a Las Vegas artist filed a lawsuit in Nevada against pop music star, Ariana Grande, over an image of a woman in a candle flame in the pop star’s widely-viewed “God is a Woman” music video.
The plaintiff alleges the music star infringed on its copyright which has caused lots of damages and confusion.
The lawsuit was filed by attorneys for Vladimir Kush and his company Kush Fine Arts Las Vegas.
The plaintiff further alleges that the image appears about a minute into Grande’s 2018 music video nearly identical to paintings that Kush painted and copyrighted in 1999 and 2000.
The plaintiff seeks unspecified monetary damages and a court order to remove the video from the internet.
The video has been viewed almost 200 million times on YouTube since it was posted last July.
