EXCLUSIVE: Cher – Singer Demands $5 Million Legal Battle Accusing Her of Ripping Off Famed Artist Be Thrown Out
The Dirty can exclusively reveal singer Cher has headed to court blasting the artist accusing her of ripping off his work … with the singer demanding the entire $5 million suit be thrown out saying she never stole anything from the man.
An artist named Moshik Nadav filed a lawsuit against the singer and Warner Bros Records. He explained around 2011, he created a distinctive and unique artistic typeface logo design which was trademarked under the name “Paris”.
Flash forward to 2013, Cher released her twenty-fifth studio album entitled “Closer to the Truth” … which debuted at number 3 on the US billboard 200 chart … however, Nadav said had the album cover that included a photo of the singer and includes 2 logos that were rip off of his famous work … despite the singer never getting his permission or paying him a dime. The man even sent off a cease and desist to the singer but she has refused to comply with his demands to stop using his art work. He filed suit for $5 million in damages.
Then on March 6th, Cher headed to court blasting the artist and demanded his $5 million suit be tossed out of court. The singer explains the type of art the man is suing for is not subject to copyright protection … saying the law doesn’t cover it and therefore he has no case.
Further, Cher says that the two works aren’t even substantially similar in the slightest. She’s demanding the entire case be thrown out and he not be allowed the opportunity to amend his complaint.
