Ashley Getting Touchy ... He's Suing The Sun!

Apparently Ashley doesn't seem to dispute what was printed ... just that it was an invasion of privacy.

The Chronicle: Ashley is suing The Sun over a story on the paper's front page, with the headline: "Toon chief's £125k binge" which was published last September.

He claims the article, photographs and a copy of his bar bill were published without his consent and contained information over which he had a reasonable expectation of privacy.

This included the fact he had flown to New York in a private jet, had hosted a party at the Pink Elephant nightclub, why he had gone to the nightclub, with whom, what he did, how much he paid for drinks - including a bill showing a breakdown of drinks and their cost - and how much he had tipped waiters.

In a High Court writ, Ashley argues other facts which should have remained private.

The writ also says publication of this information amounted to a misuse of his private information and an intrusion into his private life, as well as interference with his human rights.

Oh dear ... the billionaire sports tycoon obviously needs to get out more.
