Don Omar

Accused of Hijacking Yacht

For 'Danza Kuduro' Video

EXCLUSIVE



If you wanna film a yacht filled with babes for your music video, you have to ASK THE YACHT'S OWNER FIRST -- so says a new lawsuit, in which singer Don Omar is accused of smuggling hot chicks onto a boat for his "Danza Kuduro" video ... and illegally filming them on board.

The yacht in question -- named Le Reve -- appears at the 2:15 mark in the video ... when Don Omar approaches to find the girls partying on board. Naturally, they hop off and follow him.

But there's one problem -- according to the lawsuit, no one ever asked for any permission whatsoever to use or film the yacht ... especially to promote the "fast, lavish, over-the-top lifestyle" portrayed in the video.

The yacht's owner -- some Portuguese company -- is suing for trespass AND defamation, claiming it has suffered damages as a result of its association with the video's slutty vibe.

The company is suing Don Omar, his record company, and pretty much everyone involved in the video's production -- demanding a fat check.

Don's rep tells TMZ, the singer denies any responsibility for the shooting location in question. The rep says the recording company is responsible for clearing locations/yacht rentals. Calls to the other defendants weren't returned.

Don Omar has songs with 300 million PLUS hits. If this is true that he didn't know, someone gets fired...not necessary. Heck, even I can rent a yacht. Certainly the man has means. Come to a city near me Don...Fine a$$
