The 21-year-old singer, Ariana Granda, and the team USA soccer star, Hope Solo, hit out at the unknown people behind the latest release of topless pictures purportedly also including Amber Heard, Kim Kardashian West, and Kate Bosworth, with the 33-year-old soccer star – a victim of the scandal – insisting the theft goes “beyond the bounds of human decency”.
She told TMZ: “It is extremely sad and unfortunate that the rights of so many women were violated by the unauthorized release of private photographs.
“This act goes beyond the bounds of human decency and, as such, I stand united with all the women affected and am exploring every option to protect my privacy.”
Meanwhile Grande – who described the incident as “invasive” – maintains the images that were leaked of her earlier this month are fakes and swore she has never taken any x-rated photos of herself.
She said: “Those aren’t me. It is funny though. That’s not my room, that’s not my cat, that’s not my belly button ring, that’s not my hair that’s not my profile. Whoever that is… I was like alright.
“It is invasive but at least it wasn’t me. I wouldn’t take pictures like that. I don’t do that. I swear I don’t. I promise.”
The brunette beauty also took to Twitter at the time of the release to quash the rumours, claiming her bottom is “a lot cuter” than the one pictured.
She wrote: “to every1 going on about my “nudes” & my “m&g prices” neither are real! my lil ass is a lot cuter than that lmao & tour details r comin soon.
“but forreal tho whoever thought those were actually me…… love u but I’m praying for u (sic).”
