Jutin Bieber sued over Instagram photo

More legal drama!

Justin Bieber has found himself in legal hot water after posting a photo of himself on Instagram. Robert Barbera claims he's the rightful owner of the snap and the singer had no right to upload it back in March.

The photographer has filed a lawsuit for copyright infringement against Justin, stating he is the author of the photograph and Bieber didn't licence the snap from him before posting it on social media, nor did he have the plaintiff's "permission or consent to publish" the image. The photo in question features Justin and his pal, Rich Wilkerson, in a car.

In recent months, Gigi Hadid and Jennifer Lopez have also been hit with copyright infringement lawsuits over photos they shared of themselves via Instagram.
