According to TMZ, Chris Brown and Rihanna are looking at a $1 million lawsuit from a Florida photographer who claims that he was beat and robbed for taking a picture of the couple without their permission back in May of this year.

Luis Santana just filed a $1 million lawsuit in Florida — claiming his $3,000 camera was stolen from him after being form-tackled outside Brown’s 19th birthday party at the Vintage Ultra Lounge in St. Petersburg. Luis says bodyguards for RiRi, Brown and the Lounge attacked him for taking a photo of the couple through their open limo window, according to The St. Petersburg Times. The reason Santana’s suing for such a large amount — he says the photo would have made a killing since the two lovebirds weren’t officially dating, and it showed them together.

So he’s basically trying to get paid because he didn’t get paid the first time. Is that legal?
