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, 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, 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.
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 the 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.
