Supermodel takes legal action against Playboy

Supermodel Lara Stone today announced she is taking legal action after alleging that unauthorised photographs appeared in French Playboy.

The Dutch model, who is married to British comedian David Walliams, said the magazine had “no right” to publish the pictures last month.

She has instructed lawyers Schillings to commence proceedings in Paris against French Playboy and photographer Greg Lotus.

Stone said: “Playboy had no right to publish these unauthorised 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.”

French Playboy and Greg Lotus were unavailable for comment.
