Jennifer Hudson has been hit with a lawsuit by a New York photographer who claims she posted his paparazzi picture on Instagram without his permission.
Snapper Fernando Ramales took an image of Jennifer wearing a pink blazer and thigh high stiletto boots back in December with a news site buying the picture and running a story on 21 December 2019.
A few days later the same photo appeared on Jennifer Hudson's Instagram page with the watermark removed. The now-deleted Instagram post attracted 32 000 likes.
Fernando is seeking $175 000 (about R3 million) in damages plus attorney fees for the alleged copyright infringement.
