Bruce Jenner has threatened legal action over photos of him wearing a dress published last week.
He was seen in fuzzy photos outside his hilltop Malibu home wearing a long black-and-white striped dress.
But Jenner complained that the photos, published in the New York Daily News and shown on CNN in a segment hosted by Don Lemon — titled “Caught on Camera: Bruce Jenner’s New Look?” — violated his privacy because they were taken via a telephoto lens from as far as a mile away.
The shots have since been removed from the Web sites of both outlets.
A spokesman for Jenner, 65, told Page Six, “Both Daily News and CNN pulled the photos sold to them by X17 once they found out they were illegally obtained. The agency no longer is selling those photos [since] they confirmed they were shot illegally."
Under California law, photographers can be found liable for invasion of privacy for using telephoto lenses to capture images of people engaged in “personal or familial activity.”
Jenner’s attorney Marty Singer said, “The photos were clearly unlawfully taken from a very long distance using an enhancement device. Bruce Jenner is going to enforce his right to privacy.”
