FBI launches probe into nude photos leak
Text size Aa Aa

The FBI is investigating the stealing and posting online of nude photos of celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton.

Those targeted by a suspected hacker have been mainly female stars.

Some of the victims have claimed the images are fake while others have admitted they are real but were strictly private.

Most are taking legal action.

Several of the photos had been deleted years ago but were possibly hacked from iCloud accounts which are supposed to be secure.
