Adele becomes latest victim whose photos were leaked by hackers

21 March 2016 / 7 months 4 days ago

Adele's personal photos have been hacked and posted online.

The 27-year-old singer - who has three-year-old son Angelo with partner Simon Konecki - is said to be furious after pictures including an image of her newborn baby swaddled in blankets, an ultrasound scan from when she was expecting the baby, and a selfie while pregnant were circulated on Facebook in a group of "mega-fans".

One of the members of the group was so shocked by the breach, he contacted the 'Hello' hitmaker's management to let them know.

Days later, he received a call back from a member of her security team, who wanted to inspect the images and check where they were being used.

The fan told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "I was appalled and upset for Adele when I saw the pictures. They are really private and should not be passed around.

"I think it is disgusting that her so-called fans were sending them around and I thought it should be stopped. They are way too private, especially the scan and picture of her when she was pregnant.

"If Adele wanted to share these pictures I am sure she would. It would be up to her if she wants intimate pictures like this shown around."

It is believed a hacker accessed the images - which also included a childhood selfie of the star, and a picture of her in her early 20s lying on a bed holding a champagne bottle and a cigarette - via Simon's email.

The breach comes after personal pictures of Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner were leaked onto social media, reportedly after the One Direction hunk's mum's photos were hacked.
