Rihanna has once again become the victim of a hacker who has leaked her personal photos onto the internet. This isn’t the first time that this has happened — in May 2009, the Barbadian singer had nude pictures leaked and it has happened all over again.
Rihanna joins a long list of female celebrities who have suffered nude photo leaks at the hands of the hackers. Also involved in the first wave were the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Kaley Cuoco, Ariana Grande and others. Now, nude pictures of Gabrielle Union, Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Hudgens have all appeared online.
TMZ suggested that the pictures of Rihanna were taken during a fitting, but the singer has yet to comment on the picture leak. The photos were said to have appeared on 4chan and Reddit, but were quickly removed by the latter. In fact, after Lawrence’s photos hit the internet, the FBI was said to be involved in an investigation.
If you’ll recall, we broke the news when Scarlett Johansson’s pictures leaked two years ago. Her lawyers quickly got the FBI involved and an investigation proved that a guy named Christopher Cheney was at the center of the nude photo leak. Now, he is sitting in prison after being charged and convicted of his crimes.
Will they catch the person responsible this time around? Only time will tell.
