Iggy Azalea was shocked yesterday (May 27), after going online only to learn that some nude photos taken during a photo shoot had been leaked online for everyone to see.
The 28-year decided reacted to the leak by saying that she was “surprised and angry” before deactiving her social media pages. The photos were from a 2016 GQ photo shoot which were never meant to be released.
“Today I’m a ball of negative emotions,” she wrote in a now deleted post. “I feel blindsided, embarrassed, violated, angry, sad and a million other things. Not solely because I did not consent to this — but also because of the vile way people have reacted. A lot of the comments I see from men in particular taking things even further and sharing their thoughts and fantasies in regards to my body has honestly disturbed me.”
She also revealed that she was looking to press charges over the leak.
“I fully intend on finding out where the leak originated from and pressing criminal charges in regards to this. It’s important to me that someone actually be held accountable for their actions & the way it impacts my life.”
Photographer Nino Munoz who had shot the GQ Austrailia cover also addressed the situation on his Instagram page, and said that the photos were stolen from him, and that he felt “outraged and saddened” by the photos getting out.
