Ariana Grande is notoriously strict about the photo policy for her shows—you can only shoot her from one side, and her team has to approve every photo captured at one of her shows before they can be published—so it's a little surprising to hear that when it comes to photo policies of other people, she tends not to abide.

TMZ is reporting that photographer Robert Barbera is suing Grande for posting photos he shot on her tour that gained around 3.3 million Instagram likes. Barbera is asking for $25,000 per photo, or for the profits she gained from posting the photos, whichever is more. It's unclear as to which photos Grande posted.
