Another celebrity hacked! This time it was Selena Gomez’s instagram account. The singer, who ranks at the top as the most followed person on instagram (125 million followers!), got hacked and the usurpers immediately posted nude paparazzi photos of the singer’s ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, taken from a previous vacation back in 2015.
The account was briefly taken down but now it’s back online, and the posts were deleted. The hackers included their handles in the caption and said that the “run da scene”. They also changed her account name to “islah Gomez”. The account was deactivated within hours and reactivated minutes later.
The NSFW pics of the Canadian pop star are the same images that were published after the singer’s trip to Bora Bora with beauty blogger Jayde Pierce two years ago.
The censored images were from a leak and originally posted in the New York Daily News back in 2015, without Bieber’s authorization. Eventually, the uncensored images also made the Internet rounds.
Bieber said in an interview at the time that the leaked nude photos made him feel “super violated” and, “Like, I feel like I can’t step outside and feel like I can go outside naked,”
He also said that, “You should feel comfortable in your own space…especially that far away.”
With this event it seems that fans and the world won’t let the Gomez/Bieber relationship die. The former power couple started when the two ignited romance rumors in 2010. Later on the singers confirmed their relationship in 2011, went the young stars attended the Vanity Fair Oscars party together. However the duo soon broke up. The stars were on-again, off-again for several years but appear to have called it quits for the past year.
Bieber has been connected to several people, but right now the singer is taking a break from touring. Meanwhile, Gomez has moved on to The Weeknd, her current boyfriend.
