Ariana Grande Sued Over 'God Is A Woman' Video
An artist has filed a lawsuit against Ariana Grande over an image that appears in her “God is a Woman” video.
Vladimir Kush alleges a depiction of a woman in a candle flame, which appears a little more than a minute into the video, is almost identical to paintings that he copyrighted in 1999 and 2000.
Kush wants a court to order the video taken offline and he is seeking damages. The video has been viewed nearly 200 million times since it was posted on YouTube last July.
Grande’s record label and the video’s director and production company are also named as defendants in the suit, which was filed last week in U.S. District Court in Nevada.
Reps for the pop star have not commented on the lawsuit, which has not been tested in a court.
