Model Sara Sampaio has a bone to pick with the paparazzi.
The Victoria's Secret Angel wrote an angry note on Facebook after topless photos of her on vacation appeared online this weekend.
"How would you feel if you woke up one morning to find pictures of your [25-year-old] daughter topless all over the Internet?" she wrote in a letter to the paparazzi who she says violated her privacy. "Your daughter had done nothing wrong, she was sunbathing, she was not in a public place, she was privately minding her own business."
Sampaio was on vacation in the South of France with her entrepreneur boyfriend Oliver Ripley. She says she "had no idea that there was someone far away with a big telescopic lense taking pictures" of her.
The Portuguese beauty explained that while she may be "used to being photographed in swimsuits," there's a difference when she gives consent and gets paid for modeling.
"Some of you may say that I'm a public figure and it comes with my job...I have my professional life and I have my private life."
"As a young woman I feel violated," she added,
Sampaio concluded with a message for the paparazzi who took her picture: "To the person that sold my picture to the press, I really hope that one day you don't wake up with your daughter's naked picture all over the internet."
