Sadly, unauthorized nude photos of celebrities will always break the internet — and stars including Miley Cyrus and Kristen Stewart , and exes Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn , have found themselves the latest victims of a hack.
Three years after Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton were among the victims of an iCloud hacking dubbed the “Fappening” and “Celebgate,” a new host of A-list stars seem to be finding their privacy being violated — in the most extreme way possible — as personal photos allegedly belonging to them, showing them nude or in sexually explicit situations, have been splashed across the internet.
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.” (Vonn and Woods’s relationship ended in 2015, and she has been dating former Los Angeles Rams assistant coach Kenan Smith since last year.)
In August 2014, approximately 500 stolen photos, also sexually explicit in nature, of stars including Lawrence, Upton, Kaley Cuoco, Kirsten Dunst, and Jessica Brown Findlay were posted on 4chan and quickly spread across the internet.
In March 2016, Ryan Collins, a 36-year-old from Lancaster, Pa., pleaded guilty to one count of unauthorized access to a protected computer to obtain information, which resulted in an 18-month sentence stemming from the case.
