Lil Wayne Sued for Using Womans Likeness on T-Shirt
According to TMZ, Weezy and his clothing company are being sued by a model, Shanise Taylor, for illegally using her image on a T-Shirt. Taylor admits to posing for a 2011 photo shoot, but claims "she never signed off on the shirts using her image," and that she would never have her image "on apparel associated with misogyny and violence,” said TMZ. The woman also said she's not a professional model.
Taylor is now suing Wayne and his company for an unspecified amount, and claims she's been humiliated, and wants the shirts taken off of shelves.
This year Taylor happened upon a picture of the T-Shirt she was featured on. When she shot the photo’s she was wearing underwear, but the clothing company edited her photo’s to look as if she wasn’t wearing any underwear. See the photo’s below, via TMZ.
No one from Lil Wayne’s camp have responded, said TMZ.
