Jennifer Lawrence is just one of over a hundred celebrities who have become victims in a massive hack, which has resulted in leaked nude photos of them.

"This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence," the actress' spokesperson said.

Meanwhile, the main suspect of the celeb hack has been identified as Bryan Hamade, who claims that he is innocent. Although he intended to make profit off sharing the photos on 4chan, the 27-year-old said, "I am not behind this. It was so stupid – I saw a lot of people posting the actual leaks and bitcoin addresses and I've read a lot about bitcoin and how they are valuable and I thought, oh cool I'll get free bitcoins."

"It's been a nightmare and I haven't slept in 34 hours, now," he added. That's what you get for messing with the likes of the powerful women of Hollywood. We'll remind everyone that the man who leaked nude photos of Scarlett Johansson received a ten-year prison sentence.

Kate Upton has also responded to the hack, with her reps saying "This is obviously an outrageous violation of our client Kate Upton's privacy. We intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible."

While Kate's photos are supposedly authentic, those of Ariana Grande are not. The petite singer laughed it off on Twitter.

Other celebrities who were affected include Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Kirsten Dunst, Teresa Palmer, Amber Heard, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
