Kate Winslet: Actress’s husband fights tabloid over party photos

- Associated Press - Monday, January 7, 2013

LONDON (AP) — Kate Winslet's new husband has gone to court in London to stop a tabloid newspaper from publishing photos of him at what he called an "outrageous" costume party.

Ned Rocknroll is asking the High Court to bar The Sun from running the pictures pending the outcome of his invasion of privacy claim against the newspaper.

Mr. Rocknroll, the nephew of Virgin transport and media tycoon Sir Richard Branson, argues there is no public interest in running the photos, taken in 2010 when he was a "relative nobody." The content of the images was not disclosed. The Sun has quoted Mr. Rocknroll's lawyer, David Sherbourne, as saying they are "innocent but naive."

The 34-year-old Mr. Rocknroll married the Academy Award-winning Miss Winslet in New York last month.
