Adele is allegedly the latest celebrity to have her private photos leaked online, after photos of the singer and her family reportedly emerged on Facebook.The Sun on Sunday reports that a hacker stole photos from Adele, including a five-month baby scan and private photos of her son, Angelo, among others.The paper says the files were likely accessed through partner Simon Konecki’s email account.The private files, which also include photos of the Grammy winner as a child and others from earlier stages of her career, were circulating on Facebook, according to the Telegraph.
Her management was reportedly alerted to the photo hack by a fan, who saw them in a private Facebook group of Adele fans.
“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,” the unnamed fan is quoted as saying, according to The Sun on Sunday.
The singer, whose full name is Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, is fiercely protective of her privacy. In 2014, her son was reportedly awarded a five-figure settlement from photo agency Corbis after photos of the then two-year-old were distributed to the British press.
“It is a matter of profound sadness that many of his milestone moments, such as his first family outing and his first trip to playgroup, were photographed and published worldwide expressly against his family’s wishes. Adele and Simon never encourage such photos. Quite the opposite,” the singer’s lawyer told the court at the time.
Over the weekend it emerged that Harry Styles’ mother’s iCloud account had been compromised after photos of the One Direction singer and Kendell Jenner were leaked on Twitter
