Gigi Hadid could be the next victim of an iCloud photo leak. TMZ reports hackers have stolen “private” photos and videos from the 20-year-old model’s account and are threatening to release them online and sell them to media outlets unless she pays them.
Hadid, however, is refusing to succumb to the demands and is working with law enforcement and private investigators to identify the blackmailers and charge them.
It’s still unclear how Hadid’s account was hacked, but the situation is unfortunately not rare. Though we don’t know the contents of Hadid’s photos, the hack is eerily reminiscent of last year’s massive iCloud photo leak, which released dozens of celebrity nude photos. Among the victims were Kirsten Dunst, Kate Upton, and Jennifer Lawrence, who rightfully spoke up against the hack, calling it “a sex crime.”
