Bruce Jenner was pictured in front of his Malibu home in his first female dress on Tuesday, April 21 and now, he is allegedly threatening to sue whoever took those photos stating there were ''illegally obtained''.

In the blurry photos, the 65-year-old former Olympian dons a black-and-white-striped maxi dress while smoking a stick of a cigarette. The photos later made the front page of the New York Daily News, and were later on broadcast during a CNN segment called "Caught on Camera: Bruce Jenner's New Look?"

The images, which were taken with a long-shot lens, are believed to have been shot from as far as a mile away. Both the Daily News and CNN pulled the images from their websites days later, reports Us Weekly.

In a statement by Jenner's spokesperson, Marty Singer on Tuesday, April 28: "Both Daily News and CNN pulled the photos sold to them by X17 once they found out they were illegally obtained. The agency no longer is selling those photos [since] they confirmed they were shot illegally. Under California law, photographers can be found liable for invasion of privacy for using telephoto lenses to capture images of people engaged in 'personal or familial activity.'"

The star's lawyer, added: "The photos were clearly unlawfully taken from a very long distance using an enhancement device. Bruce Jenner is going to enforce his right to privacy."

Jenner's threat over legal action comes just four days after his widely watched interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer on April 24 during which he stated point-blank: "I am a woman," before discussing his future plans to live as a female.
