RuPaul's Drag Race star Farrah Moan accuses Ariana Grande of stealing her look in 7 Rings video

Ariana Grande has found herself in some intellectual property hot water after filing a $10 million lawsuit against Forever 21. 

The artist is going after the retail giant after they launched an ad campaign that strikes an alarming resemblance to her 7 Rings video.

Now, RuPaul's Drag Race star Farrah Moan is calling out Ariana for stealing one of her looks for the same music video.

Stole her look: RuPaul's Drag Race star Farrah Moan is calling out Ariana Grande for stealing one of her looks in the 7 Rings music video

Farrah took to Twitter with a side-by-side that shows her look from the premiere episode of RPDR: All Stars season four next to an almost identical look Ariana sported in the video.

The drag queen (who often channels Christina Aguilera) claimed that she met Ariana's designer, who revealed the singer's team used a photo of her as the basis for the look.  

Farrah wrote: 'Ariana should give me a cut of that 10M since her team literally sent a pic of me to the designer and paid them to copy my look from as4. 

'(Finally met the designer and got told the Tea) I guess stealing from queer artists for profit is fine tho.'

'Just stole it': She followed up the tweet with a GIF of Ariana donning the silver jeweled look in the video, with the lyrics changed to: 'You like my look? Gee thanks, just stole it!'

Just a coincidence? Many fans rallied behind Farrah, although some pointed out that Ariana has worn similar looks in the past

Different tune: One follower also noted that Farrah had a different tune about the similar looks when the video first came out

Farrah explained that she holds Ariana's team responsible, not the designer, who is also a drag queen that was offered 'money they couldn't turn down.'

Many fans rallied behind Farrah, although some pointed out that Ariana has worn similar looks in the past. 

One follower also noted that Farrah had a different tune about the similar looks when the video first came out, citing a tweet that read: 'if her or someone on her team actually took inspiration from something I did I would honestly die.'

Lawsuit: The whole debacle comes after Ariana sued Forever 21 over false endorsement, trademark infringement and copyright infringement, among other grounds

Copyright infringement: The lawsuit claims that the ad campaign 'capitalized on the concurrent success of Ms. Grande's album Thank U, Next by publishing at least 30 unauthorized images and videos misappropriating Ms. Grande's name, image, likeness, and music in order to create the false perception of her endorsement'

Ariana has long been an ally to the LGBTQ community, serving as a guest judge on more than one occasion for RPDR.

Farrah first appeared on season nine of the reality series, later returning for season four of All Stars.
