Ariana Grande is being sued for copyright infringement by a New York-based photographer who claims the pop star posted two of his pictures on her Instagram account without permission.

Photographer Robert Barbera filed the lawsuit against Grande and her company, Grandari, on Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. He claims the “thank u, next” singer’s Instagram post “infringed” on his rights.

The post showed Grande in two side-by-side images wearing an oversized gray sweatshirt and thigh-high boots while carrying a clear bag with the word “Sweetener” on it.

The 25-year-old singer and actress posted the photo in August with the caption “happy sweetener day” to celebrate the release of her album, “Sweetener.”

The social media post apparently left a sour taste for Barbera.
