The Weeknd Sued For Stealing "Starboy" Comic Book.

The Weeknd Sued For Stealing Comic Book

Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, better known by his stage name The Weeknd, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. Tesfaye has helped broadened R&B's musical palette to incorporate indie and electronic styles. Earlier this year, the Toronto singer teamed up with Marvel to create a new comic book, "Starboy", name took from one of his album.

The Weeknd is being accused of ripping off a comic book writer over "Starboy." According to hnhh, The Weeknd is facing a new lawsuit from a comic book writer who says the singer lifted his concept for the "Starboy" comic book. Comic book writer Eymun Talasazan says he created a character called "Starboy" in 2015 and was in the process of building a "universe" surrounding the character. While it seems as if that could be a mere coincidence, Eymun says that he was in contact with The Weeknd's camp last year and they spoke about blending his character with The Weeknd's for Eymun's character's universe.

Eymun claims The Weeknd's comic book is based on essentially the same premise as the one he pitched to the singer's camp in 2017. The writer says he was working with Stan Lee (R.I.P) in 2016 on the comic book, and is suing The Weeknd for copy right infringement.
