Jessica Alba has threatened a lawsuit against Playboy, for placing a publicity photo of her on its March cover, alledgely implying she would be naked in the magazine. From the Reuters report:
Lawyers for Alba sent Playboy a letter threatening to sue if it did not remove the issue — which features a publicity photo of the bikini-clad actress on the front — from the stands and pay for damages to her reputation and career.
“Playboy has violated my personal rights and blatantly misled the public, who might think I had given them permission to put me on their cover when I didn’t,” Alba, 24, said in a statement.
In fake related news, a representative from the civil rights group Adult Men Who Live In Their Parents’ Basements may file a class action suit for the same reason.
