Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis Sue ‘Daily Mail’ for Publishing Photos of Their Daughter Without Permission
The parents are taking legal action against the Daily Mail’s entertainment-based site Mail Online over photos of their 1-year-old daughter that were included in two articles.
Court docs reveal they’re suing the Daily Mail and its publisher Associated Newspapers for the “wrongful publication of paparazzi photographs of family outings,” and for breaching the Data Protection Act.
The couple’s lawyer Paul Tweed said in a statement, “Ashton and Mila understandably value their private and family life, and in particular their personal time with their daughter. Like any other family they should be allowed to enjoy family outings without being pursued by photographers. They have made it clear that they do not agree to the publication of photographs of such occasions.”
This is not the first time Daily Mail has been sued by a celebrity. Last July, George Clooney notably called Daily mail the “wrong kind of tabloid” after it ran a story on Amal Alamuddin’s mom, who is Muslim, claiming she didn’t approve of their marriage for religious reasons. Also last July, Angelina Jolie was reportedly seeking legal action against the tabloid for publishing a video of her and claiming she was under the influence of heroin. Additionally, in 2013, JK Rowling sued the publication for misrepresenting a story she’d written.
After months of “are they or aren’t they,” it was confirmed earlier this month that Kutcher and Kunis tied the knot.
