Yet another bump in the road to "Late Nights: The Album".

Jeremih's upcoming Late Nights: The Album, originally slated for release in early 2013, just can't make it off the shelf. The Chicago singer has blamed label problems as well as personal issues for the brutal delay of his third studio album, and, now, there's more drama on his doorstep--involving the artwork to the album's lead single, "Don't Tell 'Em". 

"Don't Tell 'Em", produced by DJ Mustard and featuring a red-hot YG, came out last summer, hit #6 on the charts, and was a staple in the club for the remainder of the year. The woman who appears on the single's black-and-white cover--shushing us with her index finger to her lip, though, says Jeremih used her picture without permission.

According to The Jasmine Brand, the model, Louise Ram, and her photographer, Alexander Flemming, have now filed a federal lawsuit against Def Jam and Universal Music Group, claiming Jeremih stole their copyrighted picture. What's more, apparently Jeremih removed the original watermark on the image when he used it as his own on "Don't Tell 'Em". 

Sadly, this means the Late Nights wait continues. Check our timeline of the long-overdue album here
