Adele is seemingly the latest in a long line of celebrities to have fallen victim to a private photo hack. The Hello singer's personal pictures were apparently stolen and leaked on a Facebook fan page. The leak is understood to contain photos of Adele from her childhood, as well as a pregnancy scan from when she was expecting her son, Angelo.
The hacker is thought to have gained access to these photos via a breach of the emails of Adele's partner, Simon Konechi.
The leak, which also features a picture of a teenage Adele dressed as Santa Claus, was brought to the singer's management's attentions by a fan. The whistleblower told The Sun: "I was appalled and upset for Adele when I saw the pictures. They are really private and should not be passed around. I think it is disgusting that her so-called fans were sending them around and I thought it should be stopped. They are way too private, especially the scan and picture of her when she was pregnant. If Adele wanted to share these pictures I am sure she would. It would be up to her if she wants intimate pictures like this shown around."
One Direction star Harry Styles and rumoured girlfriend Kendall Jenner have also been the victims of an apparent hack in recent days. Their pictures were leaked on 19 March after Styles' mother's iCloud account was apparently breached. The photos seemingly show the pair holidaying aboard a luxury yacht in the Caribbean.
