Puerto Rican star Don Omar is facing legal action over allegations he featured a yacht in a music video without seeking permission from its owners.

The singer/rapper and his record company are being sued by the Portuguese firm which owns the luxury La Reve vessel shown in the 2010 promo for his hit Danza Kuduro.

In the Caribbean-set video, Omar approaches beautiful women on board the yacht, and they jump off to follow him to a party.

The ship's owners claim they never authorised the shoot, accusing Omar of trespass and defamation after the yacht was associated with a "fast, lavish, over-the-top lifestyle".

A spokesperson for Omar tells Tmz.com the Latin Grammy-winner had no involvement in picking the filming location in question.
