Nude photos of Carly Rae Jepsen -- the pop singer behind the "Call Me Maybe" phenomenon -- have been stolen from her computer, the singer has told police, according to a new report.

Carly Rae Jepsen reportedly told police that her computer was hacked and that whoever broke into it stole naked picture of her, then attempted to sell them to a number of media outlets," according to a shocking new report released Wednesday by TMZ.com.

The photos have not been leaked onto the Internet, however, sparing Jepsen that further embarassment, according to TMZ.

"Law enforcement sources," told the gossip website that Jepsen learned anonymously about the hacking of the nude photos in March, and that her camp reported the incident to Vancouver police.

A spokesperson for the Vancouver Police Department told TMZ that an investigation "in regards to a theft of electronic property belonging to Jepsen" is ongoing, and added that the police have a suspect.

The "Call Me Maybe" singer was rocked by a nude photo scandal earlier this year, when naked pictures of  21-year-old model Destiny Benedict purported to be Jepsen emerged on the Internet, but were later determined to be shots of Benedict, not actual images of the musician.

And earlier this week PerezHilton.com and other websites suggested that a raunchy new video was of Carly Rae Jepsen, who again denied the allegations.

But Carly Rae Jepsen is the latest in what seems to be a never-ending succession of celebrities who have had nude photos stolen from them, though many of them don't even find out about them until they end up on the Internet.

The list of previous nude photo hacking victims includes Scarlett Johannson, Miley Cyrus, Jessica Alba, Vanessa Hudgens and numerous others.

Jepsen's camp did not respond to a request for comment by TMZ.
