Report: Lisa Rinna Sued By Paparazzi Agency For $1.2 Million After Allegedly Stealing Photos Of Herself And Sharing Them On Social Media!

Lisa Rinna is being sued by a paparazzi agency after the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is accused of allegedly stealing photos of herself and sharing them with fans.

In a lawsuit obtained by Radar Online, the photo agency Backgrid says Rinna posted "at least eight" photos of herself that don't belong to her.

The company claims they own the pictures of Rinna and she willfully infringed on their copyrights.

Backgrid says not only did Rinna post the photos, she "contributed to the reproduction, distribution and public display" by encouraging her 2.7 million Instagram fans to share them.

They point out how incredibly popular Rinna is among her followers on social media, revealing her posts are often seen by hundreds of thousands.

In February, Backgrid says they sent a demand letter to her attorney -- but "the parties were unable to resolve the dispute."

The company claims they've "suffered substantial economic damage" because of Rinna's actions, and they are suing for $1.2 million in statutory damages.

Backgrid is also demanding the Bravo reality star to pay for their legal fees.

According to Radar Online, Rinna now follows suit with stars like Jessica Simpson, Dua Lupa, and more who have been sued by photo agencies for posting pictures of themselves.
