Star of “The Vampire Diaries," actress Nina Dobrev, appears to have been included in the latest celebrity phone hacking. Similar to actress Anna Kendrick, whose photos leaked Sunday, Dobrev, 25, isn't nude in any of the illegally obtained shots.
A majority of the images, which surfaced on 4chan and Reddit on Thursday, show Dobrev innocently celebrating with friends at various events, Celebuzz reports. The most risqué photos include a picture of the CW star apparently licking a female pal’s chest and a close-up shot of the fully clothed actress holding her breasts. Dobrev’s former boyfriend of three years, fellow “The Vampire Diaries” star Ian Somerhalder, wasn't featured in any of the personal snaps.
Dobrev has yet to address the leak on social media. Other celebrity photos released Thursday included “90210" actress AnnaLynne McCord, model and “The Real Housewives of Miami” star Joanna Krupa.
Despite Dobrev’s photo leak falling on the heels of 4chan’s “Fappening” scandal, Gossip Cop reports that her name isn't included on the “master list” of female stars targeted in the mass hacking. The leak, coincidentally enough, coincided with Thursday’s Season 6 premiere of Dobrev’s long-standing supernatural series “The Vampire Diaries.”
The latest photo leak comes one month after 4chan hackers distributed nude photos of several A-list stars, including actress Jennifer Lawrence, model Kate Upton and underage Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney online. In late-September, a second wave of celebrity nude photos hit the Web, featuring reality-TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Avril Lavigne and former child star Mary-Kate Olsen, among others. Just last week, Kendrick, model Cara Delevingne, and Olympic athlete Misty May-Trainor were also targeted by hackers.
On Thursday, in the wake of the mass photo leaks, Marty Singer, an attorney for several high-powered celebrities, threatened Google with a $100 million lawsuit, alleging the company didn't prompty remove the photos from the Web in an effort to collect more advertising revenue. “Google knows the images are hacked stolen property, private and confidential photo and videos unlawfully obtained and posted by pervert predators who are violating the victims’ privacy rights,” Singer said in a letter to Google executives. “Yet Google has taken little or no action to stop these outrageous violations.”
Google responded to Singer’s comments, releasing this statement to USA Today: “We’ve removed tens of thousands of pictures -- within hours of the requests being made and we have closed hundreds of accounts. The Internet is used for many good things. Stealing people’s private photos is not one of them.”
