BRAD PITT SEEKING TO CHARGE E! NETWORKS WITH TRESPASSING

Brad Pitt is seeking to charge an E! Networks cameraman and producer with trespassing after the duo allegedly walked onto his Hollywood Hills property while doing research for a story.

Pitt’s rep confirms that the actor is seeking to charge the cameraman and producer with trespassing, but the network insists their employees did nothing wrong.

In a statement, the network offers an apology to Pitt and his family, saying “’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….The network in no way condones or encourages such behavior and would like to offer its most sincere apologies to Mr. Pitt and his family.’”

E! confirms that both employees have since been terminated and adds that they would never “instruct or authorize anyone working on the program to intrude onto private property…”

According to a Los Angeles police department spokesperson, the incident is still being investigated. At the time of the incident, Pitt and his family were not at home.
