PARACHUTE WARS (UPDATE)

Following a tweet from Kevin Jonas Sr. containing an accusation that Katy Perry's new "Rise" video ripped off a prior clip by artist Olivia Somerlyn for her song "Parachute" (which Nick Jonas co-wrote and produced), ET Canada has picked up the story. Jonas posted images from both clips side by side, while ET has both videos for comparison.

"The filmmakers created a video for Katy Perry having never before seen the other video," reads a statement from Iconoclast, who rep the producers for "Rise" director Paul Gore. "Any similarity is pure coincidence.”

Adds, "Parachute" director Ryan Pallotta: "Paul Gore is a revered director and I'm sure he wouldn't knowingly copy anything. It’s just a parachute — there are lots of them in prop houses and I would chalk this up to coincidence.”
