The lawsuit has been launched by several as-of-yet unnamed celebrities, affected by the leak.
The fallout continues after last month’s leaks of nude celebrity photos. This time, it’s Google on the chopping block. The company has been threatened with a $100 million lawsuit by the high-profile firm representing a dozen of the women, who had their photos stolen and privacy breached.
Jennifer Lawrence was one of the first women affected by the breach.
On Thursday, the corporation defended itself by saying that it had reacted to the leak quickly, taking down "tens of thousands of pictures" and closing "hundreds of accounts" in the wake of the scandal. The leaks are currently under investigation from the FBI.
Hilary Duff has claimed the explicit images of her which were uploaded online on Friday (5th September) are fakes and her representative is threatening legal action to anyone who attempts to pass them off as legitimate.
Hilary Duff, the actress best known as Lizzie McGuire, has been forced to contact US authorities about a series of faked photographs which bore the actress' likeness. It appears Duff is the latest victim of the hacker, or his copycats, who posted a series of photographs online last Sunday (31st August). Although Duff was not one of the initial stars to be hacked (or their photographs faked), images appeared with her likeness on the same website on Friday (5th September).
Hilary Duff has informed the FBI the images are fake.

Model Kate Upton has opened up about her thoughts about posing nude in an interview with Details magazine.
She may be one of the biggest models in the world right now, but Kate Upton doesn't feel the need to show off everything for the camera just yet. The twenty-two year old who was born in Michigan but raised in Florida is a regular in racy men's magazine Sports Illustrated, but she has never posed completely nude, and according to a new interview with Details, she's happy for it to stay that way.

When quizzed about other famous models who have posed nude such as Kate Moss and Lara Stone, Upton responded "For me those photos are art. Your body is art, your body is beautiful, and to be photographed in that way is amazing and it's received in a very positive way. But with social media and the Internet and not so great blogs and the attention like that, I don't think that my pictures would be received in the way that I'd want them to be received. That's why I've stayed away from them. I really appreciate those photos and I think those women are beautiful, but I think social media and the Internet has prevented me from putting myself out there like that."

The 22 year-old star also explained how her farming roots prepared her for becoming a model.
Kate Upton has established herself as one of the world's most sought after models, mainly due to her desirable curves and rather large chest, but she can also flawlessly show off her glamorous side when attending red carpet and high-profile events.
Upton is kown for her curvy figure
However, even though Upton looks as comfortable as can be when put in front of a camera, the showbiz lifestyle is a far cry from her humble upbringing working on a farm, and astonishingly she would be willing to give up all her fame to make a return to her farming roots.

The 22 year-old model made many of her fans happy after admitting that she may do a pohot-shoot for Hugh Hefner's adult magazine "if it inspires me and if I think that it's cool at the time."
Kate Upton isn't saying no to Playboy just yet!
The 22 year-old model appeared a GQ event for Gillette in London on Wednesday (July 9th) and revealed some information that would make her fans very happy.
Upton, who is known for her curvy figure, admitted that there is a possibility she would do a photo-shoot for Hugh Hefner's adult magazine.
Even for a successful model like Upton, the industry has some strange hangups.
Kate Upton proves (yet again) that she can do high fashion just as well as Sports Illustrated on the cover of UK Vogue’s June edition. The model, now at the beginning of her acting career looks gorgeous and sun-kissed on the cover, shot by Mario Testino. The Upton/Testino/Vogue collaboration is a familiar one, but once again, it works. She is photographed in a vintage bikini, channeling her inner 50s pinup. Protographers and stylists tend to like that aesthetic on the SI covergirl, probably because she has the body type to pull it off.
Upton's figure is more of a barrier in film than in modelling.
Upton’s feature interview, however, is where things really get interesting. The 21-year-old woman, widely considered the curviest non-plus size supermodel at the moment, recalls that it was precisely her body that gave her trouble booking auditions. Her first role is as that of a perpetually bikini-clad gigglebox in the Cameron Diaz vehicle The Other Woman. The movie was generally ill-received by critics and doesn’t really provide a lot of opportunities for Upton to flex her hypothetical acting muscles. Even so, it’s a role she had to fight for, the model recalls.
