Rihanna: David La Chapelle accuses her of plagiarism for her latest video

Famed photographer David LaChapelle is accusing Rihanna of plagiarizing his work for the clip S & M. A clip that apparently triggers all sorts of controversies.

After the video was censored in 11 countries because of scenes deemed too provocative, it is on legal grounds that the singer is dealing with protesters this time.

David LaChapelle, an eminent American photographer who has dedicated his art to picturing modern stars in a god-like manner, filed a complaint against the singer last Monday.

Denouncing 8 moments of the clip in particular, the artist who has worked with Lady Gaga and Madonna, accuses Rihanna of having plagiarized his work.

LaChapelle claimed the video copied the “composition, total concept, feel, tone, mood, theme, colors, props, settings, decors, wardrobe and lighting” of his work.

Similarities are so striking that some fans even thought LaChapelle had directed the video.

However, the 47-year-old photographer insists this lawsuit is only business.

“This is not personal, strictly business. Musicians commonly pay to sample music or use someone’s beats and there should be no difference when ‘sampling’ artist’s visuals. I really like Riri – we’ve actually worked together before. I think about her everytime I’m caught in the rain without my umbrella,” according to Radar Online.

LaChapelle is seeking over $4 million in damages as well as attorney fees and costs of the lawsuit.
