Apparently, nude photos of many top stars, including songbirds Rihanna and Ariana Grande, and  Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence showed up on social media on Sunday. US media reports this as an apparent massive hacking leak.

Word of the images began spreading early Sunday, along with reports that the photos were obtained by hacking iCloud accounts.

Other celebrities whose pictures were allegedly stolen and posted online were Avril Lavigne, Amber Heard, Gabrielle Union, Hayden Panettiere, Hope Solo, Hillary Duff, Jenny McCarthy, Kaley Cuoco, Kate Upton, Kate Bosworth, Keke Palmer and Kim Kardashian.

Lawrence’s agent, meanwhile, vowed to take legal action.

“This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence,” her representative told TMZ entertainment website.

 Former Nickelodeon star and singer Victoria Justice said the images claiming to show her unclothed body were anything but the real deal.



 A spokesperson for actress and pop star Ariana Grande told BuzzFeed that images said to be of her, are “completely fake.”

 But horror movie actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead, whose intimate photos were leaked, acknowledged her frustration.
