Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones has been hacked. Images seen by Gizmodo include multiple nude photographs of Jones, and photos that appear to show the star engaging in sexual acts. The leak also includes scans of her passport, as well as of her California driver’s license.

The files were reportedly posted on her personal website, http://justleslie.com, for a short time. The site was first taken down and showed a Tumblr 404 screen, and now it simply shows a GoDaddy landing page.


This is the latest in a string of online harassment for Jones, who was the subject of a campaign of racist abuse following the release of Ghostbusters.

The photos appear to be taken with Jones’ personal cellphone. The leak also includes selfies with Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and other stars.


It’s unclear how hackers might have gained access to Jones’ private files, but given the smartphone photos, an iCloud breach appears likely. We’re investigating and will post more information when it’s available.

This wouldn’t be the first time nude photos were stolen from an iCloud account. In 2014, several celebrity iCloud accounts were hacked, and their nude photos distributed online, in what was dubbed “The Fappening.”
