Jennifer Lopez Settles Lawsuit with Photographer Over IG Story Post

By TheBlast Staff

Jennifer Lopez has changed her mind about a lawsuit accusing her of ripping off a photographer on her Instagram Story, deciding to settle it days after demanding the case be dismissed.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the singer and photog Michael Stewart have reached a settlement in principle and are jointly requesting his case be dismissed.

The deal to bring an end to the case comes days after Lopez moved to dismiss the case after accusing Stewart of improperly serving her with the lawsuit.

As The Blast first reported, Michael Stewart sued the singer last year, saying he took a photo of J. Lo walking through New York City. The photographer claims he licensed the photo to the Daily Mail, who ran it in an article on their website on June 29, 2018.

Stewart says Lopez then used the photo on her Instagram, without his permission. He claims to be the author of the photograph and even registered it with the United States Copyright Office.

Jennifer Lopez is just the latest in an increasing line of celebs who are being sued for this same thing. Odell Beckham Jr., Jessica Simpson and Blac Chyna are just three of the famous folk who are involved in legal battles over this issue.
