Hacked! The most famous nude photo leaks
Imagine the horror of waking up to images of your private parts splattered across the internet. That’s what happened to these poor unsuspecting celebs, who’ll probably think twice before sending a nude again.
In 2010, hacker Chris Chaney managed to get into the email accounts of numerous A-listers including Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera and Renee Olstead. After that, a slew of nude photos of other prominent celebs, like Christina Hendricks, started appearing online. In September 2014, a massive Apple icloud hack – dubbed “The Fappening”– resulted in hundreds of nude pictures being systematically stolen from private accounts and uploaded online. Over 50 celebs were affected, including Kim Kardashian West, Gabrielle Union and Jennifer Lawrence, making it the most significant nude Hollywood photo scandal ever. It also raised pertinent questions about online privacy.
Other notable leaks Between 2007 and 2014, Vanessa Hudgens had nude photos leaked three times in three different years, stripping her of her sweet Disney image. In 2010, Paramore’s lead singer Hayley Williams accidentally tweeted a picture showing her breasts to her followers. Oops! After their breakup in 2013, there were rumours that Chris Brown leaked a naked photo of Rihanna with her pierced breast on display. Riri later released a statement saying that she was embarrassed and hurt by the invasion of privacy, especially considering she had already had images of her bruised face go viral in 2011 after an alleged assault by Chris.
