Kanye West and the Italian photographer who filed a lawsuit last year accusing Kim Kardashian‘s baby daddy of using his photo titled “Lolli-Pop” as cover art on a mixtape featured on the rapper’s website, has been ordered into settlement talks, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Fabio Massimo Gammacurta sued West on April 9, 2013 for more than $150,000.
The original complaint states that Ibn Jasper copied Gammacurta’s “Lolli-Pop” work and placed it on “West’s blog and other websites for download as the cover art for his mixed tape ‘F.M. Phenomenal Ziptape Vol. 1: It’s Gucci Time.’”
The work in question can be seen below, which was included in Gammacurta’s complaint:
- Johnny Depp's Longtime Pal, Legendary Rock N' Roll Guitarist Jeff Beck Dead At 78
- Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Tell-All Netflix Series Delayed To 2023 After Attacks On ‘The Crown’
- Dianne Feinstein Refuses To Retire Before Her Senate Term Ends In 2024 Despite Colleagues Arguing She Is 'Mentally Unfit To Serve'
According to court documents obtained by Radar, settlement talks were ordered by United States Vernon S. Broderick on March 12 to West and Gammacurta.
Furthermore, if a settlement is unable to be reached, depositions are scheduled to be completed by July 10, with a trial scheduled to begin on Oct. 29, expected to last two to three days.
Yeezus recently debuted his A.P.C. x Kanye collection last month, several online commenters noted it had a striking similarity to designs by Rick Owens for DRKSHDW — which West himself has frequently worn.
