Farrah Fawcett Sues Over THAT Photo

2/13/2009 9:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Farrah FawcettIf you were alive in the 1970s, you either had or knew someone who had that iconic red swimsuit photo of Farrah Fawcett plastered on their wall. Now, that photo is at the center of a lawsuit.

Fawcett is suing Bio-Graphics inc., Pie International Inc. and author T.N. Trikilis, claiming that Trikilis "has falsely asserted to third parties that [Fawcett] does not own any rights in the photographs."

Fawcett says she "owns and possesses all the photographs and negatives of all the photographs taken at the photo shoot."

Fawcett claims Trikilis and Pie were telling people they owned exclusive rights to the photo. She says Trikilis and Pie have reproduced the photo and are selling it.

Farrah is suing for $100,000 minimum.

UPDATE -- We almost never put comments up on the site, but this one is too good: "I still have the poster on my bedroom wall & it still does the trick..."

Something in this case does`nt sound right.Millions in sells of her image and she got nothing? would indicate she never owned it in the first place.Modern female strippers who keep all rights make much more than she did.She is way to late to cash in but yes in the long run it will be on the walls of hollywood eaterys with all the greats.
