Justin Bieber is in legal trouble for posting a photo of himself on Instagram. Yes, really. Paparazzo Robert Barbera has filed a lawsuit against the singer for the “unauthorized reproduction and public display” of a copyrighted photograph, E! News reports.

According to court filings, “Barbera is the author of the Photograph and has at all times been the sole owner of all right, title and interest in and to the Photograph, including the copyright thereto.”

Bieber posted the photo in question, below, to his Instagram on March 13. It shows him in a car with his friend Rich Wilkerson and is captioned, “Me and my guy.” The photo is still up on his social media platform.
