Hilary Duff is not about to sit back and let this happen.

Nude photos surfaced on the Internet claiming to be of the star—the photos are not of Duff, and the singer's camp has been in touch with the FBI concerning these fake images, Duff's rep confirms to E! News. Additionally a source tells us that the "Chasing the Sun" singer is disgusted that she's been dragged into this because someone is claiming to have photos of her.

"What kind of world do we live in where someone can just take nude photos of any person from the neck down and then claim they are a celebrity and try to sell those?" the source said. 

"And now that is the celebrity's problem to deal with simply because some lunatic said it's them? Because hey, why bother hacking anyone when you can just stop at a strip club and take a naked photo from the neck down and it's any celebrity you want it to be."

The FBI is also investigating how personal photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (who tweeted that she had long since deleted the photos that were stolen from her, so she could only imagine the "creepy effort" that went into the hacking) and many others (some of which were deemed fake by the women they claimed to be of) ended up on an online bulletin board after having their iCloud hacked.

Meanwhile, Apple said in a statement earlier this week, "We wanted to provide an update to our investigation into the theft of photos of certain celebrities. When we learned of the theft, we were outraged and immediately mobilized Apple's engineers to discover the source. Our customers' privacy and security are of utmost importance to us."
