Apparently, Kendrick Lamar didn’t get permission to use the iconic photo and photographer Giordano Cipriani is seeking damages. Filed on July 10, Giordano Cipriani is suing Top Dawg Entertainment, Interscope, and Aftermath for the use of the photo and seeking $150,000 for every time it was used. He also wants Kendrick Lamar to pay for his legal fees.
Someone definitely needs to get out their check book, because this is going to be expensive.
Hopefully, they’ll settle the suit before it gets too public.
