Shenseea is facing a second copyright infringement lawsuit—in addition to the one for $US 10 million filed earlier this year over Lick—this time for US $450,000 over the music video for her 2019 song, Foreplay.

The suit has been filed by Stephanie Sarley, a California-based visual artist known for her Instagram “fruit art videos,” who had vowed in 2019 to take legal action against the Jamaican singer for stealing her artwork and embedding it in the Foreplay video.

According to court documents obtained by DancehallMag, Sarley is seeking US $150,000 each for alleged infringement on three of her works, plus attorney fees and costs.

The lawsuit was filed on October 21, 2022, in the United States District Court Central District of California, Western Division.

Shenseea, whose real name is Chinsea Linda Lee, her label Interscope Records, a subsidiary of UMG Recordings Inc, and 10 other persons (“DOES 1-10”), who are known only by their aliases, are named as the defendants in the suit, the court records show.

Sarley has alleged that Shenseea’s original Foreplay video, which has since been removed from YouTube, infringed on her “unique line of sensual fruit imagery.”
