Twilight star Ashley Greene is threatening legal action against anyone posting leaked nude photos of her online. The Ashley Greene nude photos, which Greene’s reps say were illegally released, began appearing on various websites on Monday.
Only hours after nude photos of a young woman bearing the likeness of Twilight star Ashley Greene began circulating on the Net, legal reps for the star launched into action to have them removed. Sites like PerezHilton.com received strongly worded demands to take down the pictures immediately, which pretty much confirmed they were indeed pics of Ashley Greene.
Greene’s lawyer made it official by issuing a statement to the press that the photos were indeed of the Twilight star, but released illegally. “The photos in question, which appear to be of our client, are illegal and are being unlawfully displayed,” Greene’s reps stated.
Anyone posting the photos, which have now virtually vanished from the web, is now under threat of legal action. “Ms. Greene is the owner of the copyrights in these photos, and as copyright owner, Ms. Greene owns to exclusive rights, among others, to reproduce, distribute, and to display the photos,” Greene’s reps stated.
According to her attorney, the 22-year-old Twilight star “intends to take legal action” against anyone who distributes or displays the Ashley Greene nude photos.
Rumor has it the nude photos of Ashley Green were taken when she was 19 while she was pursuing modeling. No word yet on how the pictures ended up making their way onto the Net.
