Overnight, nude pictures of Cassie leaked online. According to the singer, someone hacked into her computer, in order to gain access to them. To her credit, she has quickly issued a statement regarding their release online:

The recent personal pictures that have been leaked on the internet of me were hacked and stolen out of my computer. These photos were obviously never intended for the world to see and itís sad that people would really take time to steal and post them, itís just evil. At the end of the day breasts are breasts, mine werenít the first youíve seen and they wonít be the lastÖ people need to grow up, letís move on. Thank you.

She is an adult and is free to use her computer as she wants. That said, I question the wisdom of a celebrity putting nude photos on their computer, cell phone or any internet connected device in this day and age. Celebrity devices getting hacked and pictures getting taken isn't new and it is something that has made headlines before. I don't mean to pile on, by any means, and she's probably asking herself the same questions I'm asking right now.

However, what shouldn't be forgotten is that her privacy has been breached here and that is not OK. Whether or not she should have had the pictures on her computer, it is both illegal and unethical for someone to hack her computer. She is right to call that person "evil."

There appears to have been two photos posted online, both of mediocre image quality. For what it's worth, they are only of her upper half. (Update: It now appears that full pictures have been leaked, as well, unfortunately). I'm not going to link to them, and any links posted in the comments will be deleted, as well any comments by people indicating they have seen them. At the end of the day, if you want to find them, you can. But, you're just not going to do it here, as we try to maintain a relatively work friendly environment, as much as possible. Just because I have to acknowledge this story doesn't mean we'll be acting as a point of distribution. Thank you, in advance, for respecting that.
