Emily Ratjakowski settles out of court over “Mood Forever” Instagram post
The saga of the Instagram post has finally come to an end. Emily Ratajkowski and a paparazzi photographer have reached a private settlement agreement in an ongoing lawsuit over an Instagram Story from 2019. The image used was taken of Ratajkowski without her consent and features the model and mother holding a bouquet of flowers over her face. Robert O’Neil, the paparazzi photographer—who has also sued Gigi Hadid in the past—claimed that EmRata had not sought permission to share it herself, nor had she licensed the image. O’Neil sued Emily for damages of up to $150,000, also asking for any profits she may have earned from his work. Although this type of legal battle between paparazzi and celebrities is common in today’s world, Ratajkowski’s new settlement ruling makes history as the first to consider the copyright ramifications of an Instagram Story, compared to one on a user’s main feed. According to The Fashion Law, in a filing on April 13, counsels for O’Neil and Ratajkowski informed the court that they had “reached a settlement in principle pending their negotiation of a final settlement agreement,” and requested an order of discontinuance of the action.

The lates issue of PORTER features actor Maisie Williams who talks about identity, starring in Danny Boyle’s hotly anticipated punk-scene series, Pistol, and the roles she’s been gravitating towards since leaving Game of Thrones. Sporting a new look, Williams talked about her upcoming aforementioned role. “Every single day, walking on set, I turned heads,” she says. “It did make me feel very, very powerful and confident. Even amongst all the punk clothes, Jordan still stood out.” After ending her time on Game of Thrones, the actor says she now leans towards roles that will connect with all sides of her personality. “Arya was written as hot-headed and I catch myself in roles jumping straight to being accusatory or angry or upset. I’ve felt myself kind of melting away from that, because that isn’t the reality of a lot of people,” she tells PORTER. Read the rest of the interview, and see her new ‘do, here.
