Don Omar is being sued for illegally filming his video "Danza Kuduro," and smuggling other people who appeared in the video.
According to the lawsuit, neither he nor his recording company has ever asked for the yacht's owner's permission to film the video, especially to promote the "fast, lavish, over-the-top lifestyle" interpreted in it, TMZ reported.
The yacht, appeared as La Reve, in exactly the 2:15 mark in the video, is owned by a Portuguese company who is now suing for trespass and defamation.
It claims that it suffers unspecified damages due to the negativity (a lot of girls on board, and lavish lifestyle) the video brings.
Other than suing the singer, the company is also suing Don Omar's recording company, and everybody involved in the making of the video, asking for money in return.
A representative of Omar said that the singer denies any responsibilities regarding the yacht rental, and the shooting location. The rep continued that the recording company should be responsible of this matter.
Calls to the recording company haven't been returned.
Omar, whose real name is William Omar Landrón Rivera, is a Puerto Rican singer who began showing his talent off in a church he used to go, his IMDb page says. He then left singing in the church to concentrate on a professional career.
The singer, best known for his song "Danza Kuduro," has produced six studio albums so far, and appeared in Fast and Furious movies and its sequel.
