Olympic Skier had labelled the leaks as ‘outrageous and despicable’ before threatening to take legal action
TIGER WOODS and former partner Lindsey Vonn have successfully had leaked nude photos of the pair deleted from a website.
A hacker reportedly broke into Vonn’s phone and gained access to explicit photos of the Olympic skier.
Vonn launched a stinging attack on the leaks by claiming them as “outrageous and despicable” before threatening to take legal action.
The pictures included a nude selfie that Woods had sent Vonn while they were together.
Speaking to Variety, attorney Andrew Brettler who represented the pair called for the hackers to be prosecuted.
He said: “The hackers responsible for these despicable invasions of privacy should be prosecuted, and the websites that post the stolen photographs and videos should be held accountable, too, because they provide a platform for these lowlifes to showcase their ‘work.’”
Vonn was left furious over her private photos getting brandished to thousands online.
A statement after the leaks read: “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.”
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.
They were also not the only celebrities to have nude photos leaked online.
Movie star Kristen Stewart and Miley Cyrus also fell victim and have had their pictures successfully removed.
Woods has endured a difficult 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.
