- Barbra Streisand has filed a $10-million lawsuit against a multi-millionaire who posted a high-resolution photograph of her Malibu estate on an Internet Web site documenting erosion along the California coast.
The lawsuit, alleging violations of the diva’s right to privacy and of the state’s anti-paparazzi law, was filed under seal on May 20 in Santa Monica Superior Court.
A longtime environmentalist and supporter of liberal political causes, Streisand, who is married to “Marcus Welby M.D.” actor James Brolin, asked the court to order Kenneth Adelman to remove her name and the photo of her estate from his Web site, www.californiacoastline.org. [Reuters]
