Britney's stolen baby photos
09:30 25 October 2005
Britney Spears has been left fuming after stolen photographs of her newborn baby appeared on the internet.
Several pictures of month-old tot Sean Preston appeared on a number of websites, including TangibleBrit.com, WorldOfBritney.com and BritneySpears.org, over the weekend.
According to Britney and her husband Kevin Federline, the pictures were stolen from a private photo shoot and the couple are now investigating who was responsible for the leak.
The websites have now taken down the photos after representatives for the couple warned anyone publishing the pictures will face legal action.
The representative said: "Anyone who publishes, sells or otherwise exploits any of these images in any way will be subject to liability and damages for wilful infringement of copyrightand invasion of privacy of Ms. Spears, Mr. Federline and their infant son."
Last week, Britney reportedly scrapped a magazine deal to publish the first pictures of Sean Preston.
The happy trio had posed for a selection of family photographs for America's People magazine in a deal worth millions.
However, Britney allegedly "freaked out" the day after the shoot sobbing that she was "selling out her baby" and couldn't give up the pictures.
It is not known whether the leaked pictures are those commissioned for People magazine.
