Phone Hackers Steal Nude Jennifer Lawrence Pictures

Apple and the FBI Are Investigating the Jennifer Lawrence Nude Photo Leak

Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande are the latest victims of a phone hacking scandal that has released alleged nude photos of the stars. It's believed the photos were acquired through iCloud accounts, though not all the photos are real. Victoria jumped on Twitter to say the photos of her were fake: "These so called nudes of me are FAKE people. Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*."

And Ariana's rep told BuzzFeed photos of the popular singer "are completely fake."

This isn't the case for all the leaked photos. Jennifer Lawrence's rep confirmed the pictures and said in a statement, "This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence." Kate Upton's attorney released a similar statement that said, "This is obviously an outrageous violation of our client Kate Upton's privacy. We intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible."

Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who also had private photos released, made her feelings known on Twitter, writing, "To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves. Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this. Feeling for everyone who got hacked."

Apple and the FBI are investigating the photo leak, with the FBI issuing this statement: "The FBI is aware of the allegations concerning computer intrusions and the unlawful release of material involving high profile individuals, and is addressing the matter. Any further comment would be inappropriate at this time."

Other stars whose names were on the list include Lea Michele, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna.
