Jennifer Lawrence hacked, nude photos leaked

Entertainment Tonight

Nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence surfaced on the Internet Sunday morning after an alleged hacker posted them online.

In an official statement, her spokesperson confirmed the photos saying, "This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence."

While it is still unclear exactly how these pictures surfaced, Buzzfeed has reportedly traced the images back to 4Chan, a popular image based bulletin board system that is mostly used anonymously.

Jennifer is not the only celebrity whose nude photos were reportedly released online. The laundry list of stars allegedly includes Ariana Grande, Kate Upton and Victoria Justice. Justice denied the photos are of her on Twitter.

Ariana Grande's rep also told ET that the alleged photos of her are "fake."

At the time of publishing, none of the other photos has been confirmed. ETonline is continuing to follow the story.

This isn't the first time that celebrities have been hacked for their personal photos.

Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, and Christina Aguilera were all hacked by e-mail. A Florida man named Christopher Chaney found their naked images in e-mails from November 2010 to October 2011 by resetting their e-mail passwords.

Chaney was arrested after a yearlong federal investigation into celebrity hacking. He pleaded guilty to wiretapping and unauthorized access to a computer.

After a tearful Scarlett gave a video testimony, Chaney was sentenced to 10 years in prison on December 17, 2012. He also was ordered to pay $76,000 to the victims.
