A hacker reportedly broke into his former partner’s phone and gained access to explicit photos of Vonn
LINDSEY VONN has slammed the leak of naked photos with Tiger Woods as “outrageous and despicable”.
A hacker reportedly broke into his former partner’s phone and gained access to explicit photos of Vonn.
They included a nude selfie that Woods had sent the Olympic skier while they were together.
Vonn has now vowed to take legal action, with TMZ reporting that golf star Woods will do the same.
In a statement, Vonn said told People magazine: “It is an outrageous and despicable invasion of privacy for anyone to steal and illegally publish private intimate photos.
“Lindsey will take all necessary and appropriate legal action to protect and enforce her rights and interests.
“She believes the individuals responsible for hacking her private photos as well as the websites that encourage this detestable conduct should be prosecuted to the fullest extent under the law.”
According to TMZ, he is ready to sue the celebrity gossip site if it does not take his photo down.
The 41-year-old’s lawyer refused to comment on the issue when quizzed by news agancy Page Six.
Although they did confirm: “It is a private hacked photo.”
Vonn and Woods were one of the hottest couples in the sporting world during their two-year relationship before it ended in May 2015.

She has revealed since she found it “really hard” being with the golfing legend due to all the scrutiny they were under as a celebrity couple who were both at the peaks of their respective sports.
Woods and Vonn are not the only celebrities who the website has posted nude photos of.
Kristen Stewart, Stella Maxwell, Miley Cyrus and Katharine McPhee have also been exposed.
Similar to Woods, McPhee has also hired a lawyer and is threatening to sue.
This latest incident is another blow to Woods in what has been a miserable few months.
He was arrested in May on suspicion of driving under the influence.
A toxicology report released earlier this month found that Woods had five drugs in his system, including traces of cannabis.
A urine test revealed he had taken opioid painkiller hydrocodone — which is sold under the brand name Vicodin.
