Selena Gomez’s Instagram account posted several nude photos of Justin Bieber before it was swiftly taken down after it was hacked on Monday night.
Variety confirmed that the account, which is the social media platforms second most-followed account, had been hacked. Variety has reached out to her rep for comment.
Selena Gomez accepts the award for favourite female artist pop/rock at the American Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday, Nov. 20, 2016, in Los Angeles.
The Bieber images were the same ones that were published the New York Daily News after the pop star’s Bora Bora vacation in 2015.
As the images were publicly available, there is nothing to suggest Gomez’s private photographs were compromised in the hacking attack.
Bieber started dating Gomez in December 2010. Dubbed “Jelena” by the media, the then-teen heartthrobs were routinely followed by paparazzi and fans, who expressed upset when they parted ways in 2014, after breaking up multiple times during their three-year relationship.
