Paris, France (AHN) – Dutch supermodel Lara Stone is suing Playboy for publishing unauthorized photos of her last month.
The 26-year-old catwalk beauty claims the French edition of the men’s magazine and photographer Greg Lotus used her images without her consent.
The photos that were published in the June/July issue of French Playboy, which include her full frontal nude and topless images, were apparently taken by Lotus last year. The model said the pictures weren’t meant to be published on the adult glossy.
Stone has instructed lawyers to begin proceedings against the magazine and the photographer in Paris.
She said in a statement, “Playboy had no right to publish these unauthorized photographs. It’s not the kind of publication I would ever choose to appear in.”
“I feel I have no option but to take steps to protect my reputation.”
