Model and actress Kelly Brook has broken her silence about the latest nude celebrity hacking scandal, almost a month after she became a victim of tech crooks who have leaked candid shots of stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. As FBI agents continue with an investigation into the photo scandal, Brook has joined the likes of fellow victims Lawrence, Meagan Good and Mary Elizabeth Winstead in speaking out about the "sex crime".
In a tweet posted on Thursday (09Oct14), Brook writes, "My Lawyer is currently dealing with 18 Women who have all had their iCloud hacked. It is a Sex Crime and a complete invasion of Privacy.
"We will find this person and they will be prosecuted. Not having it. Some very young innocent women have been targeted it's so wrong."
Cyber criminals have been releasing the explicit snaps in waves since late August (14), when private pictures of stars were stolen from cloud storage accounts and posted online.
Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Winona Ryder, Gabrielle Union and Vanessa Hudgens are also among the famous females who have also been targeted in recent weeks, and now former Doctor Who Matt Smith and Hulk Hogan's son Nick have become the first guys linked to the scandal.
Gavin Rossdale's model daughter Daisy Lowe and her ex-boyfriend, former Doctor Who star Matt Smith, have become the latest victims of Hollywood's latest nude photo hacking scandal.
Cyber criminals have been releasing the explicit snaps in waves since late August (14), when private pictures of stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst were stolen from cloud storage accounts and posted online.
Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Winona Ryder, Gabrielle Union and Vanessa Hudgens are among the famous females who have also been targeted in recent weeks, and now Lowe and Smith's names have been added to the growing victims' list.
A slew of images purportedly featuring the former couple naked appeared on a website on Thursday (09Oct14), under the title, Daisy Lowe Leaked Nude (sic). The photos appear to show Lowe and Smith posing seductively in the mirror of a hotel bathroom and are believed to be at least a year old as the stars called off their rekindled romance last year (13).
The ex-couple, which has yet to comment on the photo leak, previously dated for 18 months before parting ways in 2011.
Lowe is Rossdale's 25-year-old daughter from his previous relationship with British singer Pearl Lowe.
The latest stolen pictures emerge days after Lawrence broke her silence about the embarrassing scandal, branding it a "disgusting sex crime" and urged lawmakers to change legislation to prosecute those responsible.
Agents from America's FBI have been called in to investigate the leak, while a lawyer representing a number of the female victims has urged bosses of Internet search engine Google to help remove the remaining nude snaps from the web.
R&B star Ciara became the latest target of international prankster-to-the-stars Vitalii Sediuk as she posed for pictures prior to the Valentino catwalk show at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (30Sep14).
Wearing nothing but a black thong and a gold T-shirt, the former Ukrainian journalist, who is now an aspiring model, brushed past the new mom, making sure he scored an awkward photo with her. His latest prank was a defiant one - he wrote the phrase 'Ban in USA but I rock Chanel (sic)' down his naked leg. Sediuk recently discovered his name is on a no-fly list after recently trying to board a plane bound for America. He was arrested and charged with battery and disturbing the peace for attacking Brad Pitt at the Los Angeles premiere of Maleficent earlier this year (14) and sentenced to community service.
Ever-the-professional, Ciara refused to lose her cool and simply laughed and smiled as the prankster passed. Sediuk caused chaos outside the Balmain fashion show last week (ends26Sep14) when he lunged at Kim Kardashian and attempted to drag her to her knees. He told the DailyMail.co.uk, "The prank with Kim was my protest that U.S. banned me from entering the country (sic)... I hope Kim is OK and won't be mad at me as I didn't mean any harm. Adele, America Ferrera and Will Smith have also been targets of Sediuk.
The notorious red carpet prankster who lunged at Kim Kardashian in Paris, France on Thursday (25Sep14) targeted the reality TV star to protest a flight ban preventing him from entering the U.S. Former Ukrainian reporter Vitalii Sediuk threw himself at the feet of Kanye West's new wife as she exited a car to attend the Balmain showcase during Paris Fashion Week and attempted to pull her to the ground.
Security guards rushed the attacker and pulled him off the TV beauty, allowing her to make her way inside with West and her mother Kris Jenner.
Sediuk claimed responsibility for the prank through his representatives and he has now spoken out about the reasons for his actions.
The assailant, who is now a Paris-based model, recently discovered his name is on a U.S. Customs and Border Protection no-fly list after attempting to board a flight from Istanbul, Turkey to Los Angeles, and he decided to retaliate by ambushing Kardashian - but he didn't mean to hurt the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star.
The 25 year old tells the DailyMail.co.uk, "The prank with Kim was my protest that US banned me from entering the country...
"I hope Kim is OK and won't be mad at me as I didn't mean any harm. Kanye is one lucky man as Kim is a goddess!"
FBI chiefs, who are responsible for adding names to the official no-fly list, have yet to comment on story, but Sediuk's latest celebrity prank occurred four months after he was sentenced to community service for striking Brad Pitt at the Hollywood launch of Maleficent in May (14). He was also arrested two weeks prior to the premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in France, where he attempted to crawl under America Ferrera's dress.
The troublemaker previously made headlines in 2012, when he was slapped by Will Smith after he attempted to kiss the actor, and he was placed on probation after he was arrested for crashing the stage at the 2013 Grammy Awards, where he ran onstage and grabbed the microphone from Jennifer Lopez as she presented soul star Adele with the Best Pop Solo prize.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West plan to heighten their security after they were ambushed in Paris, France on Thursday (25Sep14).
The reality star and her husband are said to be so shaken by the incident that they will use armored vehicles and have added two additional teams of bodyguards to surround them during their stay in the French capital.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians beauty was grabbed by notorious Hollywood prankster Vitalii Sediuk as she exited her car to attend the Balmain show at Paris Fashion Week on Thursday. Editors at TMZ.com report that Kardashian and West will not keep the extra team when they return to America.
A long list of celebrities have fallen victim to Sediuk's antics including Brad Pitt, America Ferrera and Will Smith.
"I'll tell you what, it's so funny because he did ask to make an appearance on the show in the white Batman suit. I don't think it's going to happen. But he did ask." Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith on her son Jaden's desire to appear on her new U.S. TV drama Gotham, a prequel to Batman. The teen sported his unique choice of attire at Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's wedding in May (14).
Last night while watching the VMAs, did you feel like it looked kind of empty? Us too. Not only did the arena seem a lot emptier than usual, it seemed like some of the music industry’s biggest stars decided to skip the event altogether. Where in the world did they go instead of the VMAs?
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber
Didn't need to see them there together, obviously. But we sure missed you Sel.
Rihanna and One Direction
^Rihanna's face was all of ours when we realized they all were not showing up.
Bruno, where are you?
He wasn't there. So Miley didn't twerk.
No one else could rock this sea shell bra, so no one dared try.
I guess after having 'NSYNC show up last year, JT would have felt lonely going without them.
Kim was there. Kanye, where were you?
Pink can out-perform 90% of the people who were there last night.
Started from the bottom, and apparently still there, since he wasn't here.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Maybe they were thrift store shopping?
And most importantly, where was the The Smith Family?!
They cut to the audience for reactions, and I was devastated to find that without the Smiths, I could not fully comprehend what I was seeing or how I felt about it.

Will Smith's teenage son Jaden is courting controversy like his sister Willow after posting a snap of himself posing half-naked reality TV star Kylie Jenner.
Last week (05May14), former Hannah Montana actor Moises Arias posted a black-and-white image on his Instagram.com page of himself without a shirt on while 13-year-old Willow lounges on a bed next to him. The picture caused a storm of criticism, prompting Arias to delete the image from his social networking accounts.
Now Willow's 15-year-old brother is taking the heat after Kim Kardashian's half-sister posted a similar black-and-white snap on her Tumblr blog. The photo shows Jenner, 16, straddling Jaden from behind, as he wears only Calvin Klein boxers and a backwards baseball cap. Alongside the post, Jenner writes, "*Ksss* (sic) Ahhh... 2014."
The pair is reportedly dating. After critics questioned the appropriateness of Willow's picture, her mother, actress, Jada Pinkett Smith, defended the controversial image, telling TMZ.com, "Here's the deal - there was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it."
