Vampire Weekend claimed that photographer Tod Brody had sold them the photo with a release form signed by Kennis, but she claimed Brody never even took the photo.

Vampire Weekend have now settled out of court with Kennis for an undisclosed sum, but Vampire Weekend still have a case pending against Brody. Brody is representing himself after he failed to pay his Lawyers.
