Lindsey Vonn is among the latest round of celebrities who have been victimized by a pathetic phone hacker.
On Monday night, Vonn, her ex-boyfriend Tiger Woods, Katherine McPhee and Kristen Stewart all sat back and watched as private photo were leaked online.
Many of these photos were of the naked variety.
Not long after the images (which we refuse to share here) went viral, an attorney for Woods released the following statement:
“The posting of these illegally hacked photos is a despicable invasion of our client’s privacy, and we will aggressively pursue any websites who seek to capitalize on or encourage this outrageous conduct.”
Shortly afterward, a spokesperson for Vonn said something similar to People Magazine.
“It is an outrageous and despicable invasion of privacy for anyone to steal and illegally publish private intimate photos,” said the skiing champion, through this representative.
Continued the statement:
“Lindsey will take all necessary and appropriate legal action to protect and enforce her rights and interests.
“She believes the individuals responsible for hacking her private photos as well as the websites that encourage this detestable conduct should be prosecuted to the fullest extent under the law.”
The intimate images of Vonn and Woods that got hacked and released were taken several years ago, back when the famous athletes were dating.
They were taken off Vonn’s cell phone and reports indicate that the pictures are off Vonn and Woods without any clothes on, snapshots they sent to each other as a form of foreplay.
The stars split in May of 2015 after about two years.
Vonn has been dating former Los Angeles Rams assistant coach Kenan Smith since last year.
A lawyer for McPhee has hinted that the former American Idol finalist will also pursue legal action against the hacker.
We’ve received no statement from Stewart yet, but we’ve been told that the photos leaked online without her permission feature this actress in the shower.
Over the past several months, a number of female actors, actresses and singers have been victimized by hackers, including Amanda Seyfried, Demi Lovato, Kate Hudson, Lucy Hale and Rosario Dawson.
This ongoing hack is the largest since the so-called Fappening in September 2014, during which the lewd images of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and a multitude of other stars were released online.
Let’s hope they catch the idiot or idiots who did this.
It really is a disgraceful act.
