Jennifer Aniston Sues Paparazzo Over Topless Pics

Jennifer Aniston is suing a paparazzo for breaching her privacy by photographing her inside her house when she was topless / partially naked using a telephoto lens.

The complaint, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, asserts that photographer Peter Brandt had to have watched Aniston “from a great distance through invasive, intrusive and unlawful measures.”

According to the complaint, the photos “could have been taken only by trespass” and were taken in a location where she had reasonable expectations of privacy.

As a result, Aniston’s lawyer, John H. Lavely Jr., warns that publishing “certain photographs” of his client without a top, “or in the act of taking off or putting on her top,” will result in “very bad things.” The topless photographs, according to Lavely, were taken by Brandt “using powerful telephoto lenses,” while he was “more than one mile away from Ms. Aniston’s home,” capturing her in the act of undressing in her own home.

Aniston is seeking monetary damages as well as a court order prohibiting Brandt and others from profiting from the images.

Brandt was unavailable for comment, but his celebrity photographs have featured in People magazine and the New York Post.

“Publication of the photographs will not only expose you to substantial damages… but you … will also be held liable for the embarrassment and emotional distress caused to Ms. Aniston by such publication,” Lavely warned.
