LONDON - Singer Christina Aguilera is planning to take legal action against computer hackers for leaking her semi-nude photos online.
The photos show her in various provocative poses in her underwear.
According to Aguilera’s spokesperson, the pictures surfaced on various websites after an internet account belonging to Aguilera’s stylist was hacked, reports contactmusic.com. And the singer has now asked her lawyers to take action against the hackers.
“The photos of Christina Aguilera being leaked to the press were illegally obtained by a hacker who tapped into Christina’s personal stylist’s account. The photos were taken in the privacy of Ms. Aguilera’s home and were used only in a personal exchange between the star and her stylist,” said the spokesperson.
“We find the actions of the hackers and the press who purchased and/or obtained these photos to be irresponsible and actionable. We are attempting to determine the identity of the hackers and will pursue them aggressively. Their conduct is reprehensible,” the spokesperson added.
