    "Sexy" rocker Rod Stewart is being sued for a cool $5 million. Whoa. Why?

    A photographer claims that the singer ripped off her work with an image he used to promote his Las Vegas residency.

    Bonnie Schiffman snapped Stewart's big hair back in the '80s and then licensed the shot for the cover of his 1989 box set Storyteller.

    Schiffman says that the singer's reps contacted her in 2010, looking for her permission to use the picture again to promote his gigs at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. She declined due to being offered a paltry $1,500.

    A similar photo was used on an ad and printed on tickets.

    Schiffman is calling it a copy of her previous work and is suing the star and the venue for copyright infringement.

    Team Stewart (and his hair) or Team Schiffman and her photo of his hair?
