The FBI searched the home of a paparazzi agency’s co-owner to determine whether someone tried to hack into the computers of the gossip magazine Us Weekly, it was reported Friday.
FBI agents on Tuesday seized at least one computer while searching Jill Ishkanian’s home in the Topanga Canyon area, her spokesman, Glenn Feldman, told the Los Angeles Times.
He said the FBI took Ishkanian’s computer to see whether it had been used to access Us Weekly records and promised to return it.
Ishkanian, 41, is a former West Coast editor of Us Weekly. She left the magazine to form Sunset Photo and News with two other investors.
