If you were paying attention to the eclipse Monday afternoon, you may have missed a separate blinding visual online.
The gossip website Celeb Jihad published a post full of various naked celebrity selfies yesterday, including Tiger Woods, his ex-girlfriend Olympian Lindsey Vonn, Miley Cyrus, Kristen Stewart, Katharine McPhee, and Stella Maxwell. Based on the nature of the pics, it’s being assumed that they’re the product of a phone hack, but it’s still not clear who might have done the hacking or when.
Sources have reported that Vonn’s phone was most likely the source of the photos of she and Woods. The pair split in 2015, so the hacker could have been sitting on the photos for a while (waiting for, say, a DUI to peg it against), or had to go digging pretty deep into Vonn’s Cloud to find Woods.
Woods and McPhee have already lawyered up, and are demanding the photos be removed immediately.
Vonn released a statement Tuesday morning, saying that she “will take all necessary and appropriate legal action to protect and enforce her rights and interests.” And that “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.”
