Cardi B Is Being Sued For The Use Of A Tattoo On Her Album Cover

Cardi B is facing a mounting legal challenge over one of her album covers. A judge recently decided that the use of a tattoo on one of her album covers. Namely, the lawsuit states that the album cover used the tattoo in a humiliating way.

Cardi B is heading to court after a federal court ruling.

Cardi B is going to court over the massive back tattoo displayed on Cardi B’s “Gangsta Bitch Music Vol. 1.” The tattoo of a tiger and a snake was prominently displayed across the man back on the album cover as Cardi B drinks from a Corona bottle. That photo is the cause of a lawsuit against Cardi B.

Cardi B and her legal team originally argued that the image was a transformative take on the original image. The rapper argued that the use of the image was protected under fair use, but the judge did not agree.

“To constitute a transformative fair use, the revised image must have significant transformative or creative elements to make it something more than mere likeness or imitation,” writes Carney. “A reasonable jury in this case could conclude that there are insufficient transformative or creative elements on the GBMV1 cover to constitute a transformative use of Plaintiff’s tattoo.”

The judge is using the testimony of the man who created the album cover against Cardi B.

The creator, Timm Gooden, testified that he had created an album cover after using various images. When he turned in the draft, Gooden was told to find a different image and he used an image he found from a Google search. The image was then pasted onto the man in the photo and used as the album cover.

Kevin Brophy Jr. alleges that the use of the tattoo misappropriated his likeness in a humiliating way. Brophy tried to use an expert to claim that more than $1.5 million were made because of the image, but the judge disagreed.

The case will be heading to a jury in 2021 adding to a trend of tattoo litigation.

Catherine Alexander, WWE wrestler Randy Orton’s tattoo artist, is suing the WWE and Take-Two Interactive Software over a tattoo. The wrestler is depicted in a video game with the tattoo and the tattoo artist wants to be compensated for the use of it.

Dana Hutchings, 41, entered a taco eating contest during a Fresno Grizzlies game in 2019. He choked and died during the contest and now his son has filed a lawsuit against the baseball team.

The son of a man who died from a taco eating contest is suing for wrongful death.

Dana Hutchings, 41, died after choking during a taco eating contest during a Fresno Grizzlies game. His son has filed a wrongful death lawsuit claiming that the event organizers were not equipped to host the event. Furthermore, the lawsuit claims that the organizers failed to provide a medical response team.

“People say all the time he knew what he was getting into, well clearly he didn’t,” Martin Taleisnik, an attorney representing Hutchings’ son, Marshall told CBS17.

Marshall and his attorney are pushing back at the notion that Dana should have known better.

People have sounded off on social media criticizing the family for filing the lawsuit. Yet, the family and their attorney are calling attention to the lack of information given to contestants.

“If you don’t know all the pitfalls, how can you truly be consenting and participating freely and voluntarily? It’s a risk that resulted in a major loss to Marshall,” Taleisnik told CBS17.

Dana’s family is seeking a monetary settlement from the Fresno Grizzlies owners.

The wrongful death lawsuit names Fresno Sports and Events as the responsible party. The lawsuit also notes that alcohol was made available to contestants and added to the likelihood of the tragedy.

“We are devastated to learn that the fan that received medical attention following an event at Tuesday evening’s game has passed away. The Fresno Grizzlies extend our heartfelt prayers and condolences to the family of Mr. Hutchings,” a statement from the Fresno Grizzlies read after the death in 2019. “The safety and security of our fans is our highest priority. We will work closely with local authorities and provide any helpful information that is requested.”
