As you already know, there are unauthorised naked images of Justin Bieber on the internet and his legal team plan to punish those that first made them avaliable.
Whilst holidaying in Bora Bora the ‘What Do You Mean?’ chart-topper was photographed without his permission or his clothes by a paparazzi photographer using a telephoto lens.
Bieber’s legal team have now issued a cease and desist notice to New York’s Daily News – the publication that initially published the images – demanding their immediate removal from their website within 12 hours of receiving the letter. (FYI The pictures are still on the Daily News site).
According to the 21-year-old singer’s legal representatives the images are unlawful on three grounds; they are a violation of his privacy, infringe his publicity and breach his trademarks.
If the pictures are not removed, the Candian pop star’s team plan to sue.
Speaking for the first time about the pictures, Bieber told Access Hollywood: “‘My first thing was like, how can they do this? Like, I feel super violated. Like, I feel like I can’t step outside and feel like I can go outside naked.”
