Travis Scott sued by artist in France for using his art in album cover

Travis Scott is being sued again! And this time it is not by victims of Astroworld. This time a man called Mickael Mehala, who lives in France, is suing the rapper for using his original artwork in his album cover years ago. Mehala who is also called Black Childish alleges that Scott used his art in an album called “La Flame.”

Mehala said that he had created the artwork for himself n 2015. He sent it to Travis through a Direct Message (DM) on Instagram in 2016, so he could see it and share it with fans This was the year that Scott dropped the album allegedly called “La Flame.”

 



The artist said that he never got a reply from Travis. However, he saw his centaur art prominently featured in “La Flame” when the album rolled out and became a huge hit.

TMZ got legal documents from France that said that the artist formally registered a copyright of his centaur art in 2019. He said that he never heard from Travis in the interim period but one of Travis’ attorneys finally contacted him in 2019. The lawyer said that the rapper was unaware that art belonging to someone else was used.

The lawsuit also said that the centaur art had been removed from several platforms that had “La Flame.” However, Mehala seems determined to have his day in court. He also wants hundreds of thousands of d’argent (money) from Travis Scott as well as sole control of his centaur art.

Scott’s lawyer dismissed the allegations according to a statement obtained by the Daily Mail. Ed McPherson, who is a lawyer for Scott, called it a “frivolous and baseless filing” and said that it would be almost certainly thrown out after it reached court.

The statement also said that anyone who had access to the internet could confirm that an album called “La Flame” was never released by Travis Scott. It was temporarily uploaded by streaming services and was removed when people tried to pass it as a real album cover. He also said that the looked forward to “dismissing this case entirely.”

Travis Scott is already facing umpteen number of lawsuits in the U.S. after the tragedy at Astroworld last year, when fans were killed and many were injured, in a stampede. Travis Scott continued to perform on stage, while the mayhem was unfolding below.
