    Khloe Kardashian is getting sued for sharing a photo of ... Khloe Kardashian. Yep, that’s right.

    The reality-TV star shared an unlicensed image of herself taken by photo agency Xposure Photos, and now, the agency has filed suit in California, according to published reports.

    According to the complaint, Kardashian or someone on her team may have shared an image taken by photographer Manual Munoz that was licensed to the Daily Mail. The complaint says the photo was shared in September 2016, and adds that copyright information was cut out.

    "Kardashian's Instagram post made the photograph immediately available to her nearly 67 million followers and others … who would otherwise be interested in viewing licensed versions of the photograph in the magazines and newspapers that are plaintiff’s customers," Xposure Photos told Us Weekly in a statement.
