Jennifer Aniston Declares War Over Topless Photos

December 06, 2005 09:34:28 GMT

Jennifer Aniston is declaring war against a paparazzo, suing him for invading her privacy by using a telephoto lens to photograph her inside her home when she was topless or partly undressed. In her lawsuit, filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, the actress alleged that photographer Peter Brandt must have observed her "from a great distance through invasive, intrusive and unlawful measures."

Thus, Aniston attorney John H. Lavely Jr. outs a warning that the publication of "certain photographs" of his client sans top, "or in the act of taking off or putting on her top" will result in some very bad things. Further Lavely claimed that the topless photos were snapped by Brandt "using powerful telephoto lenses," and sitting "more than one mile away from Ms. Aniston's home," captured her in the act of disrobing in her own abode.

The decision to air the never-before-seen sketches, however, provoked the assumption that Dave won't ever return to complete the third season of the series. "We have to do this because we have no idea what the future foretells," the network's president, Doug Herzog, said. "He hasn't been able to articulate what he would like to do, so we're moving forward."
