Clooney vows to sue French magazine over twins’ photos

George Clooney said he feels compelled to sue over paparazzi photos of his recently born twins.

Clooney said on July 28 that he would sue the French magazine Voici over images they published of Ella and Alexander, his infant daughter and son with wife Amal Clooney.

“Over the last week photographers from Voici magazine scaled our fence, climbed our tree, and illegally took pictures of our infants inside our home. Make no mistake the photographers, the agency, and the magazine will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” Clooney told TMZ.

The photos reportedly show the Clooneys holding their children while staying at their estate in Lake Como, Italy.

In a statement Clooney said the photographers and the magazine “will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The safety of our children demands it.”

A representative for Voici magazine defended publishing the photos, saying the photos themselves in no way endangered the Clooney family.

“George and Amal Clooney have been very public personalities for the last few years,” the representative said. “The birth of their twins, Ella and Alexander, has also been commented a lot, by themselves and their families.”

“The images published in Voici this Friday are a response to a public demand,” the representative continued. “People love George Clooney and have been following his life story for years now. Those pictures do not put in danger Mr. Clooney, his wife, or their kids.”

George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin, a British-Lebanese lawyer who specializes in international law and human rights. Clooney is 56, his wife, 36.

Ella and Alexander were born in June. So far the couple has refused to publish photos of the children, or to give interviews about them.
