Adele has suffered a major security breach, after a fan reportedly hacked into her boyfriend’s email.
A hacker has published private photos of Adele online, including images of her son Angelo and his ultrasound scan. The hacker is believed to have accessed the images through her partner Simon Konecki’s email and then shared them online in a Facebook fan group.
Stolen pictures of Adele have been circulating online after a security breach.
According to The Sun, the pictures include ones of her newborn son swaddled in blankets, a selfie the singer took in a kitchen when she was pregnant and even one of Angelo’s five-month scan.
There was also a picture of Adele aged around five, sticking her tongue out at the bottom of a playground slide and another from her early 20s which shows her lying on a bed while holding a champagne bottle and a cigarette.
The Sun reports that they alerted Adele’s management team to the breach on Friday. The images were circulated online though a private Facebook group of the singer’s biggest fans. However one member of the group was so appalled by the intrusion he also contacted her management.
The singer’s management then took down her social media accounts to stop them being compromised. The fan who alerted her management told The Sun: “I was appalled and upset for Adele when I saw the pictures. They are really private and should not be passed around.”
“I think it is disgusting that her so-called fans were sending them around and I thought it should be stopped. They are way too private, especially the scan and picture of her when she was pregnant.”
“If Adele wanted to share these pictures I am sure she would,” he added. “It would be up to her if she wants intimate pictures like this shown around.” A source close to the star told The Mirror Adele was ‘angry and upset’ upon hearing of the leak and would have told her management to ‘get on it straight away’.
