"Who gave Chris Brown permission?"
Chris Brown is facing criticism from fans of Ariana Grande after he allegedly used an image of her on his new album cover.
After dropping the deluxe Christmas edition of his album 'Heartbreak On A Full Moon', titled '12 Days of Christmas: Cuffing Season', fans were treated to some brand new festive artwork.
However, eagle-eyed Twitter users soon began picking up similarities between a cartoon image of a female on the cover and the 'Side To Side' songstress.
Fans were surprised by the alleged inclusion of Ariana since she doesn't appear on the album - the pair haven't worked together since their 2014 collaboration 'Don't Be Gone Too Long'.
People questioned whether Breezy asked Ariana's permission before using the image, which sees the cartoon woman strike an identical pose to the singer, along with her iconic half-up-half-down hairstyle.
Many users are tagging Ariana in the images in the hope that she will clarify the speculation, while others are defending Chris, insisting the image isn't Ariana.
Okay all joking aside Chris brown using Ariana on his album cover is like creepy unless she told him it was okay (which I highly doubt she did) this is like no not okay he needs to just leave her alone pic.twitter.com/kalP7zwsCP— Hayley (@Macianaxoxo) 13 December 2017

Grande is also yet to respond to the rumours.
