Kate Upton is the latest celebrity confirmed to have had private pictures stolen and posted as part of a massive leak of nude and risqué celebrity photos, which were circulated widely on social media on Sunday and have been brought to the attention of the FBI.
The "photo dump," which took place on Sunday, marks what is believed to be one of the largest celeb hacking scandals and privacy breaches in history. In addition to the actress and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, it has also been confirmed that Jennifer Lawrence and Mary Elizabeth Winstead had private photos stolen and distributed without their permission.
"This is obviously an outrageous violation of our client Kate Upton's privacy," her lawyer told E! News. "We intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible."
It is unclear how many of the naked and scantily-clad pictures that were posted are authentic. One shows a woman resembling Upton covering her bare chest, while others appear to be naked selfies of her and boyfriend and Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander.
