The Dutch royals aren’t the only ones suing the media this month. TMZ reports that

George Clooney is gearing up for a legal war in Italy — claiming invasive paparazzi climbed over the wall of his Italian home and shot a topless photo of a 13-year-old girl changing in one of his guest rooms.

In a statement to TMZ, Clooney reportedly said:

“We’re suing two magazines AND a photographer. I don’t know about the law in the United States but in Italy it’s illegal for photographers to climb over my wall and to take long lens pictures of a 13-year-old girl in her bedroom.

I draw the line of privacy at that.”

Clooney also had his privacy invaded when he was hospitalized at Palisades Medical Center several years ago and dozens of employees improperly snooped on his records.
