If you think going through baggage and customs is enough of a headache, at least you aren't famous. A celebrity photo company is being accused of breaching the privacy of over 70 celebrities in order to snap a quick photo of them getting off the plane, according to The Guardian. An employee working for Virgin Atlantic was reportedly sending travel information of notable celebrities to paparazzi photographers so they could meet them at the airport for an easy photo. A batch of emails sent from a Virgin Atlantic employee to freelance photographers was obtained verified by the Guardian from a source close to freelance photographers working for the company.
The company accused of using the information is Big Pictures, who call themselves "The World's Biggest and Best Celebrity Picture Agency." The emails between Big Pictures and the Virgin Atlantic employee were brought up during the Leveson inquiry into press standards on Friday. The founder of the company, Darryn Lyons, could be recalled for questioning. He already faced the inquiry in February. Celebrities affected by the scandal range from James May and Jeremey Clarkson, the popular hosts of BBC's Top Gear, to Madonna. Royalty aren't even safe, as Princess Beatrice's travel plans from some time last year.
