Recent events regarding the leaking of celebrity photos are giving new meaning to breach of privacy. And unfortunately, no one knows this better today than R&B singer Jill Scott.
On the heels of news regarding hacked and leaked photos of celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and many more, newly released photos that are allegedly of Jill Scott have leaked online.
The photos that appear on Twitter.com picture a woman who resembles the singer posing in one photo topless and the other partially covered wearing a robe. Both photos posted are selfies.
Jill Scott is not known to be in the news in this capacity or in any way relative to this. So the mentioning of her name and linking to the alleged photos is shocking to fans of her music.
Neither Jill Scott nor representatives of the singer have confirmed or denied the photos. In fact, the singer has been inactive on Twitter today as her name and the photos trend on the social media site
Over the holiday weekend, hacked private photos of celebrities were shared on Reddit and various other websites.
Though there were reports that suggested that the photos were hacked due to a security breach in Apple’s cloud based iCloud service, the company released a statement saying that “certain celebrity accounts were compromised by a very targeted attack.”
Of the names released regarding the list of hacked celebrities, Jill Scott was not one of them.
UPDATE: Jill Scott has confirmed via Twitter that only one of the two photos are of her. In a tweet she said,
I def took the 1st pic w/ a robe; weight loss chronicle but the 2nd, sorry freaks, is not me. I wish I had that space between my thighs.
