Travis Scott Sued Over ‘La Flame’ Centaur Album Art
Travis Scott is being sued by a French artist, who claims the rapper copied his original artwork for the La Flame album cover.
Mickaël Mehala, a French artist, who also goes by the name Black Childish, is suing Scott in his home country of France for copying one of his artworks for the album cover to Travis La Flame.
Mehala claims he sent Scott the artwork via an Instagram DM in 2016, the same year La Flame was released, so that he could see it and share it with his fans.
However, he says he never heard back from Scott and later saw that the artwork had been used without permission for the album.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Mehala formally registered a copyright for the artwork in 2019 and has been contacting Scott’s legal team about the issue ever since.
A lawyer for Scott, did respond to Mehala in the summer of 2019, saying “Travis was unaware of using art belonging to anyone in particular.”
The lawsuit does also note that the artwork has since been removed from multiple platforms carrying La Flame, but Mehala still wants to take Scott to court.
