Demi Lovato is the latest celebrity victim to have her private photos hacked, as the star’s intimate photos have been posted online.
In this case, Lovato’s Snapchat was hacked and nude photographs of the singer were posted to her own account.
The account is directing users to swipe up and join a private group on “discord.”
Who Are The Hackers?
The hacking group has taken responsibility for recently taking over Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey’s account and have been connected to a nude photo leak of Chloe Grace Moretz.
It’s unclear if Demi has reported the hacking to law enforcement or if Snap is working to remove the images.
Her Team Scrambles To Remove Images
Shortly after the photos went live on her Snapchat, Lovato’s team was alerted to the situation and rushed to get them immediately removed.
It’s unclear if Lovato has assumed complete control of her social media presence, but at least for now her nudes are gone.
Lovato has had a rough few weeks as she just dealt with a major backlash after being paid $150,000 by the Ministry of Jerusalem Affairs to visit Israel and get baptized in the Jordan river.
After fans turned on her for viewing her trip as a political statement, the singer apologized and said, “No one told me there would be anything wrong with going or that I could possibly be offending anyone.”
She continued, “With that being said, I’m sorry if I hurt or offended anyone, that was not my intention. Sometimes people present you with opportunities and no one tells you the potential backlash you could face in return. This was meant to be a spiritual experience for me NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT and now I realize it hurt people and for that I’m sorry.”
Last year, a Connecticut man was sentenced to eight months in prison or his role in a hacking scheme that exposed intimate photos belonging to celebrities.
The person admitted at the time to being a member of Apple’s online security team and sending emails to the victims asking for their information.
He was one of four people charged in 2014 for hacking private photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst and that were published online.
We have reached out to the singer, so far not comment.
