Kristen Stewart, Stella Maxwell + More Demand Removal of Nude Pics Amid New Hack
Kristen Stewart and Stella Maxwell have joined fellow stars Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn in sending legal orders to certain websites that have published their photos without permission as part of yet another nude celeb hacking scandal. As of now, the pics are still online.
Woods' lawyer, Michael Holtz, has also sent a threatening letter to one particular site demanding the images' immediate removal. Hackers apparently also collected private photos of Miley Cyrus and Katharine McPhee.
Previously, Vonn had announced her intention to pursue legal action against any sites that posted the photos, which were obtained from her personal cell phone. Her lawyer issued a statement to People:
It is an outrageous and despicable invasion of privacy for anyone to steal and illegally publish private intimate photos. Lindsey will take all necessary and appropriate legal action to protect and enforce her rights and interests. She believes the individuals responsible for hacking her private photos as well as the websites that encourage this detestable conduct should be prosecuted to the fullest extent under the law.
Among the photos is a revealing selfie Woods took and sent to Vonn while they were romantically involved several years ago.
Stewart and Maxwell, who are dating, have not made any public statements yet.
This past December, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale was victimized in a similar manner. She responded on Twitter, telling the hackers, "Kiss my ass."
Then there was the notorious iCloud hacking leak in 2014, in which a massive amount of personal photos of numerous celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence and Victoria Justice were distributed online. In January, Edward Majerczyk of Chicago was sentenced to nine months in prison for his role in the scandal.
