Jen was one of the many female celebrities – including Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst – that fell victim to the hacking which took place back in 2014.

George – and the other members of the hacking scandal – pled guilty back in April where he admitted to posing as a member of Apple’s online security to access usernames and passwords of the celebrities to leak private photos and information on the Internet.

Back in 2017, Jen addressed the hacking where she said, “It was so unbelievably violating that you can’t even put it into words. I think that I’m still actually processing it.”

In addition, George will also serve three years of supervised release once he is released.

    Unfortunate that he is being punished after giving many orgasms to so many males. These female celebrities were stupid enough to put nude pictures of themselves online. They don’t deserve any sympathy.

  • Emmy Snow

    they didn’t put them online garbage man. They were personal photos that were stolen from them.

  • Jason Bowen

    The pictures were “stolen” after being uploaded the Apple’s cloud where they were put online. They were stupid enough to allow it to be possible for he outside world to see them.

    What is it that you don’t understand about PRIVATE? The Cloud is NOT online. It is a private space on ONE individual’s phone and/or computer. No one can access it unless they get hold of the user name and password of the entire Apple account. Those account names and passwords were STOLEN through fraudulent means. Can you grasp this simple concept? NOTHING WAS ONLINE until the thief STOLE the pictures and put them online.

    So they weren’t hacked they gave them their passwords and & accounts voluntary LOL, dumb celebrity isn’t a stereotype without reason.

    8 months in prison?? people get less for assault and rape.
