Victoria Justice 'angry' at 'massive invasion of privacy' and pursuing legal action after nude photos leak online
The singer and actress had previous said that the images were fake
On 31 August she tweeted that photos of her, obtained by a thus far unidentifiable hacker, were inauthentic but has now spoken out again, stating she is seeking legal action.
“Shortly after I tweeted about certain pics of me being fake, I was faced with a serious violation of privacy,” she wrote on Twitter.
“There have always been fake photos of me on the internet, but I will not be put in the position to defend myself as to what is real or what is fake. I am angry at this massive invasion of privacy, and like the other women who are in this situation alongside of me, I am taking legal action to protect my rights.”
Nude pictures and intimate videos were published online of stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande, Mary E Winstead, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Mary Kate Olsen, Mary E Winstead, Cara Delevingne, Kate Bosworth, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst andKaley Cuoco.
“This is a flagrant violation of privacy,” said a spokesperson for Lawrence. “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”
Justice and Grande have both described the images as fake, while Upton’s representative is “looking into” the pictures.
The anonymous hacker also admitted that they were unhappy with how much money he or she has made from circulating the stolen photographs via 4Chan.
The FBI is investigating the incident.
