What a horrible week for Katy Perry!
Sadly, the 33-year-old is involved in another controversy, where she is being accused of stealing an artist’s work!
On Wednesday, Dom Sebastian shared a post on Instagram saying the Santa Barbara-native flat out stole his 2012 artwork, and used it for the single cover of Chained To The Rhythm, the Hot Chip remix.
To make matters worse, Miz Perry is allegedly trying to profit off of Sebastian’s piece by selling it as a $ 35 print.
The artist wrote:
“@katyperry has stolen my artwork (this piece is from 2012) and used it on her single cover – I was never contacted by her or anyone from her team or label @capitolrecords. What’s more is that Katy has been selling my artwork as her own, as merchandise on her store, and through other outlets, as a $ 35 print. I’m shocked that @katyperry and @capitolrecords think it is acceptable to lift my work directly from my website and use it as they please without paying me or even contacting me. #exposed”
