"Anyone finding this funny, shame on you": Danielle Lloyd confirms explicit images have been hacked
Danielle Lloyd has hit out at people searching for explicit images of her which were hacked and leaked online.
The 34-year-old took aim at ‘scumbag’ hackers who released private pictures taken from her iCloud, less than a year after Danielle fell victim to another iCloud hacking.
After the explicit pictures with Danielle’s fiance Michael O’Neill surfaced on a website, people began joking about the content on social media – including Towie star and Danielle’s sworn enemy Maria Fowler, who referenced a sex act taking place in the image in a tweet.
Danielle, who gave birth to her fourth child Ronnie last September, confirmed that the image was real and that she was taking legal action against the website and hackers.
The former Miss Great Britain tweeted: ‘Yes my I cloud has again been hacked by some scum bag this is now in the hands of my lawyers again! I won’t be made to feel embarrassed but thankful the website has been taken down already.
‘Anyone finding this funny well shame on you! your personal stuff should be safe @Apple.’
While many replies to Danielle’s tweet cruelly mocked her for the hack – seriously, guys? – others praised her for refusing to take the violation of privacy lying down.
The former Celebrity Big Brother housemate was targeted by hackers last August when she was nearly eight months pregnant, with a website publishing a number of naked pictures of Danielle.
A rep for the model confirmed she would be taking legal action, saying: ‘Our client Danielle Lloyd has today reported to the police distribution and violation of her private images.
‘These images are from her private phone and are for private and personal usage only.
‘Police are investigating how these images were taken from her private and personal iCloud – seemingly from a Jihad website who Danielle has been victim of and terrorised by for some time.’
Danielle is currently preparing to marry her fiance Michael after they welcomed their first son together last year.
She is already mum to sons Archie, George and Harry with ex-husband Jamie O’Hara.
