Pitt: Cable crew trespassed at home

Brad Pitt is claiming that a producer and cameraman from E! Networks trespassed at his Hollywood Hills home.

The two parked a van outside the home on Oct. 20, ignored a "no trespassing" sign and walked onto the property, where they were spotted by some construction workers, Cindy Guagenti, a representative for Pitt, alleged Saturday.

"We think they opened the gate," she said.

Pitt and his family were not home, she said.

After the two went back to the van and left, construction workers called Pitt's security personnel, who contacted Los Angeles police and made a trespassing report, Guagenti said.

A police spokesman did not have the report available on Saturday.

"That somebody would go onto private property and film a house ... I think that's really, really crossing the line. We're just looking at our legal options," Guagenti said.

A call to E! Networks -- also known as E! Entertainment Television -- seeking comment was not immediately returned Saturday afternoon.

However, the network denied wrongdoing in a statement and said it was investigating the trespassing allegations, People magazine's Web site reported.

"E! Networks did not instruct or authorize anyone working on its program to improperly intrude onto private property, and the individuals involved have been terminated," the statement said. "While neither Mr. Pitt nor his family were at the property when the incident took place, the network in no way condones or encourages such behavior and would like to offer its most sincere apologies to Mr. Pitt and his family."
