Veteran rocker Rod Stewart has been slapped with a 5 million dollar lawsuit over allegations he ripped off a photographer's work by recreating an image to promote his Las Vegas residency.

Photographer Bonnie Schiffman captured a shot of the back of the Maggie May hitmaker's trademark bouffant hairstyle back in the 1980s and licensed it for the cover of his 1989 box set, Storyteller.

She claims she was approached by Stewart's representatives in 2010 seeking permission to use the picture once more to publicise his comeback shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Sin City, but she refused after allegedly being offered just 1,500 dollars for the photo rights.
