Dutch model Lara Stone is suing Playboy in France, claiming they published “unauthorized” sexy photos of her.

Stone alleges shots taken by photographer Greg Lotus were featured in the June edition of the men’s publication without her prior consent. And she’s fuming.

She says, “It’s not the kind of publication I would ever choose to appear in. Playboy had no right to publish these unauthorized photographs. I feel I have no option but to take steps to protect my reputation.”

Her lawyers are now preparing to file suit against French Playboy bosses and Lotus in a Paris court.

Stone married British comedian David Walliams in May.
