Katy Perry is facing a $ 150 ,000 paparazzi photo lawsuit over a pic of her dressed as Hillary Clinton that she put on Instagram–here's the latest update. Gigi Hadid famously blasted a photo paparazzi agency last October after she was sued under similar circumstances.

Katy Perry is being taken to task over a paparazzi photo that the pop music superstar shared on her Instagram page in 2016. Backgrid, the photo agency that owns the rights to the image, is suing Perry for $ 150 ,000, claiming the singer had been contacted multiple times from 2017 to as recently

A paparazzi agency who snapped a shot of her in the costume, though, is crying foul and claiming she's guilty of copyright infringement.

On Tuesday, Backgrid, a top paparazzi agency, filed a lawsuit against the singer, claiming she violated federal law by posting one of its pictures to her Instagram. The agency alleged that Katy never paid a licensing fee to use the 2016 Halloween picture, and it now suing her for $150,000 for using it. Backgrid adds that it has attempted to settle the dispute several times since 2017, but has been unsuccessful.

Katy is far from the only celebrity to be sued by a photo agency for allegedly using its photos. Gigi Hadid was sued last year for posting a paparazzi picture to Instagram. She later blasted the agency.

"Yesterday I heard from my management that I am being 'legally pursued' for my last (now deleted) Instagram post," she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post on Oct. 18, 2018. "I posed/smiled for the photo because I understand that is part of my job, this was an appropriate situation for 'the press' to attend and also that this is how paparazzi make a living."
