Rihanna and video director Melinda Matsouka are being accused of stealing another video concept. Just months ago, Rihanna settled a lawsuit out of court following allegations from famed photographer Dave LaChapelle sued her for borrowing elements of his work for her "S&M" video. Now photographer Solve Sundsbo is claiming that Rihanna's "You Da One" vid steals concepts from his "2008 Numero 93" photo shoot.
Matsouka directed both "S&M" and "You Da One."
Despite Sundsbo's claims, Rihanna continued to promote the clip. “#YouDaOne video was released a day ago and already has nearly 4 million views,” she tweeted. ” ‘You Da One’ video has 7,060,407 views.”
