A Manhattan photographer has sued model Emily Ratajkowski for posting a copyright-protected photo of herself online.
Lensman Robert O’Neil claims in his Manhattan federal court lawsuit that the 28-year-old bombshell included a photo he’d taken of her in her Instagram story, without first getting permission.

O’Neil’s original photo shows the stunner carrying a bouquet of flowers — which obscure her face — down the street while wearing an oversize blazer and tennis shoes.

Ratajkowski posted the photo to her social media, captioning the image “mood forever” — though the image itself disappeared because it was posted as an Instagram story that vanishes after 24 hours.
The photographer is suing for unspecified monetary damages, citing copyright infringement.
