She claims that her pictures were leaked in July
Model Joy Corrigan is reportedly suing Apple after naked pictures of her were allegedly leaked via iCloud.
She claims that her nude images were publicly circulated months ago, before the recent photo hacking scandal that involved over 100 other celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Cara Delevingne, Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst. The incident was allegedly enabled through an Apple iCloud leak.
Apple has denied that the hacking attack was a company security breach, although Apple says they will introduce new strong security measures to keep its customers’ data safe in the cloud.
Joy Corrigan allegedly informed Apple of the hacking attack in July, but she claims that the organisation said she was victim of phishing and needed to change her password.
Joy Corrigan says she followed instructions, only for more images to be circulated days later. She claims that Apple responded in the same way. Joy Corrigan is now planning to sue Apple and encouraging other victims to do the same.
Victoria Justice and Kate Upton are also reportedly taking legal action but it is not known whether or not Apple is involved.
“This is a violation of privacy,” said a spokesperson for Lawrence . “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute those who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”
