Heidi Klum

I'm Ok with Going Topless


9/22/2012 11:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0922-heidi-klum-gettyHeidi Klum is totally cool being topless (like most Europeans) but she is adamant that snapping half-naked shots of her in the privacy of her own home is a HUGE NO NO ... sources close to the model tell TMZ.

As TMZ first reported, Heidi is considering filing a lawsuit after topless photos of her were printed in France. Klum is peeved because the photos were taken at her home, on a private beach. 

We're told it's that fact that has Klum particularly peeved. Our sources says Klum has no problem being photographed topless when she goes on a public beach, but it's not okay when she's on private property.

According to our sources, Heidi says the cameramen were literally hanging from trees, using long range lenses (from miles away) and sending helicopters to fly over the house in order to get the shot.

We're told Heidi is furious that these private images -- which included her small children -- were blasted all over the world for everyone to see and even ended up on porn websites.

Our sources say Heidi is waiting to see how Kate Middleton's legal battle over her topless photos turns out before deciding whether or not to sue.

It's an interesting issue- i.e., where does one's reasonable expectation of privacy begin and end- because the government does this and much more to invade one's privacy when it conducts surveillance, whether or not it has a warrant. It is further complicated by the fact that Heidi Klum and Kate Middleton are public figures, and they gain benefit from that. So, maybe they have to take the good with the bad, as offensive as it is. In Klum's case, it's too bad because she seems to be a decent and humane person, and has not actively associated herself with war policies of a government committing war atrocities.
