Pitt Files Trespassing Charges Against Journalists
LATEST: BRAD PITT is seeking trespassing charges against a producer and cameraman after they allegedly walked onto the actor's property in the Hollywood Hills last week (ends27OCT06). The journalists from US TV network E! were fired after they allegedly unchained a gate at the back of the star's estate before entering the grounds, where they were spotted by construction workers maintaining the property. Pitt and his girlfriend ANGELINA JOLIE are currently filming in India and were not at home when the incident occurred. A representative for Pitt confirms to American publication People, "Yes, we have filed trespassing charges against E! and are exploring our legal options against both the crew that actually trespassed and the network itself." Executives from the cable entertainment network deny any wrongdoing, saying in a statement, "E! Networks is investigating allegations that a producer and cameraman who were filming locations for a program about Brad Pitt went onto property last week that is reportedly owned by Mr Pitt. "E! Networks did not instruct or authorise anyone working on its program to improperly intrude onto private property, and the individuals involved have been terminated. "While neither Mr Pitt nor his family were at the property when the incident took place, the network in no way condones or encourages such behaviour and would like to offer its most sincere apologies to Mr Pitt and his family." A Los Angeles police spokesperson says the incident is still under investigation.
