Jay-Z Sues Jonathan Mannion For Exploited Photos

The War Begins

One of the most well-known photographers is in huge trouble that he cannot get out of, Jonathan Mannion was caught using Jay-Z’s images as well as his name without consent.

You wouldn’t really expect this type of behavior from one of the hip-hop industry’s prominent photographers, but it sure is disappointing.

Jay-Z Files Lawsuit

According to TMZ Jay-Z opened up a lawsuit and is suing Mannion for millions of dollars, Mr. Carter says he probably felt as if he could exploit the photos as his own simply because he took them.

This could have been easily avoided as the rapper has given Mannion a fair warning before acting on the lawsuit. However, he continued to keep these images up on his own website as well as merch.

Not only did he keep the photos up, but Mannion himself and his Jonathan Mannion Photography LLC company also requested millions of dollars in return.

“It is ironic that a photographer would treat the image of a formerly unknown Black teenager, now widely successful, as a piece of property, to be squeezed for every dollar it can produce. It stops today” The lawsuit reads.

This is also very hypocritical on Jonathan’s side because he has sued multiples for the same reason, exploitation.
