The Olympian’s phone was hacked and her photos stolen
NAKED pictures of Tiger woods and ex-girlfriend Lindsey Vonn have been leaked as they become the latest victims of hacking.
Now the recovering golfer is threatening to sue the website if they don’t remove the photo of him and Lindsey. We reveal all…
Who is Lindsey Vonn?
Vonn is an American World Cup alpine ski racer on the US Ski team.
She is one of only two female skiers to win four World Cup overall championships.
The 32-year-old, who started skiing aged just two, has a gold medal from the Olympics and two from the World Championships.
But she has missed several seasons due to injury so worked as a correspondent for NBC News covering the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
When was she with Tiger Woods?
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.
The couple had met at a charity event in 2012.
Vonn married to fellow Olympian and skier Thomas Vonn in September 2007.
But they announced their split four years later and were officially divorced in January 2013.
What is the nude photo leak?
A hacker reportedly broke into Vonn’s phone and gained access to her pictures.
Among the photos was a nude selfie Woods had sent the Olympic skier while they were together.
The 41-year-old’s lawyer refused to comment on the issue when quizzed by news agency Page Six.
Although they did confirm: “It is a private hacked photo.”
Woods is now threatening to sue the website if it does not take his photo down, according to TMZ.
Hackers also put up her racy images. The pair’s lawyers have now successfully removed the pictures but they vowed to find the culprits.
A spokesman for Lindsey said: “It’s an outrageous and despicable invasion of privacy for anyone to steal and illegally publish private intimate photos.
“She will take necessary legal action to protect her rights.
“She believes hackers and the websites that encourage this detestable conduct should be prosecuted to the fullest extent.”
Who else is involved in the leak?
Woods and Vonn are not the only celebrities caught up in the scandal.
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.
