George Clooney is planning to take legal action against the paparazzi who took photos of his newborn twins, by illegally trespassing on his property. French magazine Voici posted photos of Ella and Alexander on their cover, that were taken at their home in Lake Como.

George and his wife Amal Clooney are very protective of their newborn twins. The actor said in statement: "Over the last week photographers from Voici magazine scaled our fence, climbed our tree and illegally took pictures of our infants inside our home. Make no mistake the photographers, the agency and the magazine will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The safety of our children demands it."

However, a spokesperson for Voici defended their action, and told E! News: "George and Amal Clooney have been very public personalities for the last few years. Their wedding in Venice, in September 2014, was a very mediatic event; the pictures of them smiling to the public were seen all around the world. The birth of their twins, Ella and Alexander, had also been commented a lot, by themselves and their families."

"The images published in Voici this Friday are a response to a public demand. People love George Clooney and have been following his life story for years now. Those pictures do not put in danger Mr. Clooney, his wife or their kids," the rep added.
