    Snoop Dogg is being sued over an Instagram post

    The 49-year-old rapper is the subject of legal action from Freedom News TV (FNTV), who are seeking $150,000 from him in federal court after accusing him of posting one of their videos - a clip of a protestor scaling a building in New York City - on his social media page without permission


    The company make their money by licensing the rights to photos and videos but admitted they saw the video on Snoops Instagram on 3 April and didn't register the clip for a copyright until 9 April.

    The video in question can still be seen on the 'Drop It Like It's Hot' hitmaker's page, along with the caption: "Dummy of the week."

    The post has been shared with Snoop's 65 million followers and has attracted more than 4.5 million views.

    The post on Snoop's page has over 4.5 million views and was posted to the rapper's 65 million followers.

    FNTV said: "Without permission or authorisation from Plaintiff, Defendant volitionally selected, copied, stored and/or displayed Plaintiff’s copyright protected Video.”

    Snoop has yet to respond to the case, RadarOnline.com reports.

    Meanwhile, the hip hop legend recently reflected on his "beautiful" friendship with celebrity lifestyle guru Martha Stewart.

    He said: "Me and her together, it's always beautiful, we always enjoy each other's company. It just shows the world that love is love!

    "If you get a chance to sit around somebody, talk to them, understand them, you can become friends with them no matter what colour they are, where they come from, how old they are, race, background, religion.

    "And that's what we doing, we break all the stereotypes when we're together. We make the world feel like it's OK."

    Although the pair's friendship started with them seeing a "great business opportunity", their relationship blossomed.

    He added: "It's more personal now. I think in the beginning, it was business. I think we seen a great business opportunity, and shooting on set, we loved it each other.

    "And then it was opportunities that came up. I would do a commercial and I'm like, 'Yeah, you wanna do one?' 'Yeah!' 'OK, let's do this!'

    "And she would bring me opportunities, I would bring her opportunities. And then it became, 'I don't wanna do it unless Martha in', and then she would say, 'I don't wanna do it unless Snoop in!' "
