Lisa Rinna has been sued for $1.2 million.
“During the game of connect the dots while snorkeling on a dip, we discovered a federal court action against [Lisa Rinna]. Apparently, she just got sued for copyright violations. We will cover this case. I hope she knows about it as the papers were left with her assistant,” attorney Ronald Richards wrote.
Richards is the attorney suing and investigating Erika Jayne and her husband, Tom Girardi.
“[Her] response is due on July 30, 2021. We will provide further analysis after she appears in the action,” he added.

Backgrid USA Inc. filed a complaint against Lisa on June 11, 2021, accusing her of copyright infringement.
“Rinna violated federal law by willfully infringing Backgrid’s copyrights to at least eight photographs on, at least, Rinna’s Instagram account… Moreover, Rinna induced, caused, or materially contributed to the reproduction, distribution and public display of the Rinna Photographs, and derivatives thereof, all while knowing or having reason to know of the infringement on her account was without permission, consent, or license,” the complaint read. “By uploading the Rinna Photographs to the account, Rinna encourages her fans to ‘share’ the photographs, thus, causing others to also willfully infringe and multiplying the harm to Backgrid.”
