Travis Scott was sued again. This time for allegedly using an artist’s artwork without permission for an unreleased music project.
Ed McPherson told TMZ that the cover artwork was originally uploaded to some streaming services by fans, but was removed by DSPs when they realized it wasn’t official, so the copyright lawsuit is unfounded.
Artist Mickaël Mehala says he designed the work in 2015 and shared it with Scott via Instagram in 2018. Scott didn’t respond, but then says it was used in conjunction with Scott’s unofficial compilation release Travis La Flame.
The artist wants hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation.
“This is a frivolous and unfounded file that will almost certainly be thrown out once it has its day in court. Anyone with internet access could tell you that Travis never released an album called ‘La Flame,'” Scott’s attorney told TMZ.
“The illustration in question was created by fans and uploaded to streaming services by fans, which any user can do. Streaming services quickly removed it after realizing people were trying to pass this off as real album art. We look forward to fully dismissing this case.”
