Harry Styles' sister Gemma Styles says their mother Anne's life was "violated" when she was recently hacked, which led to several private photos of the One Direction singer with Kendall Jenner being leaked online.

The stolen pictures showed the two looking cozy during their yacht vacation in the Caribbean in late December, where they were joined by the singer's mom as well as Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi. Photos of Harry and Kendall during their trip, taken by celebrity photographers, were published at the time (see photo above).

After the new pictures were leaked, scores of fans took to Twitter to express their excitement, surprise and anger, while Anne herself closed her account.

"Please note: my mum is not back on Twitter, any new accounts are fake," Harry's sister tweeted Sunday. "To those making them—has her life not been violated enough for you?"

Harry, 22, and Kendall, 20, have not commented about the leaked photos, nor has his mother.

"Sadly for the people apologizing there are also opportunistic, nasty people adding insult to injury," Gemma added.

"@GemmaAnneStyles who cares," a fan wrote, to which Gemma responded, "I do."

The pics appeared to have been posted first on Twitter. Retweets and comments soon spurred the hashtag #AnnesiCloud to trend, while duplicate photos were also posted on other social networks. The poster, who claimed he or she "literally just hacked Anne," has since had their Twitter account suspended. Their identity has not been revealed.

Kendall and Harry were last seen together in January at a private party at a rock club.

They are not in a relationship, a source told E! News last week, adding.

"Kendall is single," the source said. "She is not dating Harry anymore, but they are still friends and if they are in the same city they likely would [hang out]. Nothing bad happened between them, just busy schedules."
