Naked Pictures of Kristen Stewart, Miley Cyrus, Stella Maxwell & More Leak
Everyone remembers where they were when naked pictures of TONS of big-name celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton leaked in August 2014. We are just shy of the three-year anniversary of the incident, which is now commonly known as ‘The Fappening,’ and now another major celebrity hacking went down.
Nude photos of Kristen Stewart, Miley Cyrus, Stella Maxwell, Katharine McPhee, Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn made their way onto the Internet last night after an unidentified hacker gained access to their personal accounts. Many of the stars involved have already gotten lawyers to help rectify the situation, according to TMZ.
Michael Holtz, the attorney representing the professional golfer, sent a letter to the website the posted the images saying that they must be removed ASAP, or further legal action will take place. It was actually Lindsey’s phone that was compromised, but then-boyfriend Tiger sent her a completely nude shot, which is now online. The American Idol alum’s lawyer also produced a similar notice.
TMZ also reports that the Twilight actress’ legal representative, Scott Whitehead, is demanding websites remove the pics of his client posing naked behind the Victoria’s Secret model be taken down, because he claims posting them is a clear example of copyright infringement. Basically, KStew and her girlfriend own the images and no one else has the rights to use them without permission.
Hacking into anyone’s account and exposing pics/information without permission is a serious crime. The 36-year-old man responsible for The Fappening was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison for his actions after taking a plea deal earlier in 2016. He only faced a maximum of five years in jail, because while he confessed to hacking into stars’ iCloud accounts, there was technically no proof that he was the one who posted the stolen images online.
Hopefully no one else is affected by this hack and the celebs dealing with it can get the justice they deserve.
