Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis sue the Daily Mail
Mila Kunis and Aston Kutcher have sued the Daily Mail for breach of Protection Act
The couple are angry about news stories on the Mail Online site which they say featured “wrongful publication of paparazzi photographs of family outings”, according to a statement released.
Their lawsuit also cites the allegation that the stories were used to “promote clothing products by the Mail”.
The statement reads: “Ashton and Mila understandably value their private and family life, and in particular their personal time with their daughter. Like any other family they should be allowed to enjoy family outings without being pursued by photographers. They have made it clear that they do not agree to the publication of photographs of such occasions.”
According to BBC, the lawsuit alleges "misuse of private information and breaches of the Data Protection Act".
Mail Online routinely posts paparazzi shots of famous and not-so-famous people accompanied by fashion boxouts inviting their readers to purchase items of clothing similar or identical to those worn by celebrities. Two pieces about Kunis and Kutcher remain visible online, from June and July.
The couple, whose daughter, Wyatt was born in October, become the latest powerful Hollywood figures to take on the Mail.
