Halle Berry vs. the Paparazzi
Tue, 29 Jul 2008 11:33:34
Actress Halle Berry is waging war against the pesky paparazzi. The actress, who gave birth to daughter Nahla Ariela Aubry in March but has yet to release any sanctioned photos of the infant, has filed a criminal complaint against the snapper who took photos of the Oscar-winning actress holding her daughter in her backyard, which were subsequently published in the tabloids and online. Berry was upset that the photographer was able to penetrate security and trespass on her private property and take the photos. The photographer tried to say the pictures were taken while Berry was out and about in Los Angeles, though it's clear that she was at home.
Berry's attorney Evan Spiegel said that an investigation is underway and that Berry has witnesses who saw the photographers blatantly trespassing on the actress' property. Berry is seeking to have all the photos removed from the web, since the actress steadfastly maintains that she will never sell photos of her daughter or any future children she may have. Frame Pictures, the photo agency that distributed the pictures, had no immediate comment on the matter.
