Zeta Jones: 'topless pics' legal threat
Zeta Jones: 'topless pics' legal threat
News Headlines: Entertainment

Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas are threatening legal action after topless pictures of the actress while heavily pregnant were posted on the Internet

One picture is alleged to have shown Zeta Jones smoking a cigarette on a private estate in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, while expecting daughter Carys, who was born last month.

The Hollywood couple's lawyers accused US radio operator Clear Channel Worldwide of "continued malicious conduct" for allowing the photos on its websites.

Zeta Jones's lawyer's three-page letter to Clear Channel, posted on thesmokinggun.com, said the "surreptitiously taken" photos are an invasion of privacy and warned the couple could be awarded "substantial" damages.

It described the 33-year-old as "heavily pregnant and topless" in the pictures.

Meanwhile US magazine Star published a long lens shot of Carys asleep in her mother's arms on the cover of its latest issue, the first picture of the baby.

Zeta Jones and Douglas's legal battle with Hello! magazine over the publication of unauthorised photographs of their wedding ended last month with both sides claiming victory.

The High Court judge ruled Hello! breached the couple's rights of confidence but said they had no claim in law on an invasion of privacy.
