George Clooney to sue photographer in Italy
George Clooney is planning to sue a paparazzo photographer and two magazines for taking private photos of the actor’s Italian home, according to TMZ. A photographer allegedly climbed the wall of Clooney’s home and took photos of a 13-year-old girl who was changing in one of the star’s guest bedrooms, as well as photos of Clooney and his girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis. The images were then reportedly published in two magazines.
“I don’t know about the law in the United States, but in Italy it’s illegal for photographers to climb over my wall and to take long-lens pictures of a 13-year-old girl in her bedroom,” Clooney said in a statement. “I draw the line of privacy at that.” Clooney’s rep confirmed to EW that the actor is taking legal action.
