Lady Gaga, Madonna & More Stars Had Their Data Stolen by Hackers

There’s been a major leak among superstars, including Lady Gaga and Madonna.

A hacker group stole data from several acts, including Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Bruce Springsteen and Nicki Minaj, Variety confirmed on Monday (May 11) with New York-based media and entertainment law firm Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks.

“We can confirm that we’ve been victimized by a cyberattack. We have notified our clients and our staff. We have hired the world’s experts who specialize in this area, and we are working around the clock to address these matters,” they said in a statement.

The information stolen included contracts, nondisclosure agreements, email addresses, phone numbers and private correspondence. The news first arose once Madonna‘s Madame X Tour contract suddenly surfaced on dark web forums last weekend “to show the hack was real.”

“It’s evidently a ransomware attack, in which cybercriminals use the threat of releasing the stolen data as leverage to extort payment. It is not known what demands the hackers have made in connection with the theft of Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks data,” Variety reported.

At the same time, Madonna revealed she is undergoing this treatment.
