The drama just keeps on going with Rihanna's S&M video!
Rihanna is said to be being sued by fashion photographer David LaChapelle, who claims that her FANTASTICAL video for S&M (which you can watch here, by the way) is 'directly derived' from his work.
In other words, he reckons she's nicked the video off him.
According to Reuters (business website that knows their stuff) David LaChapelle has filed a claim against Rihanna for using 8 iconic images for the video he feels are a direct replica of his work.
To be more specific, he is said to claim that the "composition, total concept, feel, tone, mood, theme, colors, props, settings, decors, wardrobe and lighting" are what have been copied.
It's not known how much mooola David (above) is meant to be suing for.
S&M's director Melina Matsoukas spoke to MTV and told them she wasn't bothered by the controversy the video's caused.
'When I go out to make something, I kind of go out with the intention to get it banned — [well] not to get it banned, I always want my stuff played — but to make something provocative,'
She added: 'So when you do something that's provocative, that's usually a repercussion. It's gonna be talked about or banned or slandered in some way. But it's making an effect and people are having a dialogue about it, so, to me, that's successful.
It'll be interesting to see how this one turns out!
