Justin Bieber filed a lawsuit against H&M, claiming they did not follow the proper licensing for recently released merchandise featuring the artist. Bieber took to Instagram to write, “The H&M merch they made of me is trash;” “All without my permission and approval;” “SMH, I wouldn’t buy it if I were you;” “When everyone finds out I didn’t approve any of this merch smh.”
The merchandise is currently unavailable for purchase on the company’s website. We say from the posts on social media the line includes “a white sweatshirt with Bieber’s face, a tote bag with images of him, and a phone accessory and pink sweatshirt that reads, “I miss you more than life” — a lyric from Bieber’s song “Ghost.”
