Necole Bitchie, celebrity blogger, posted a photo of Beyonce that wound up costing her thousands of dollars to settle.
The photo agency initially sued Necole Bitchie for $1M but they settled for an undisclosed amount.
Here’s what Necole told the Breakfast Club of the situation.
I was sued for posting a picture Beyonce when she was pregnant. She was looking or houses in Miami, she had on a blue shirt. I remember it like it was yesterday. It was the photo agency that took the picture.They are very strict. And I think, especially when you are a new blogger, you Google images to find your images. So you don’t really know about lawsuits or people coming after you. It’s not until they think you have money do they start [coming after you.]
