AceShowbiz - Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton are the latest celebrities who fall victim to cyber crime. An intimate video featuring the singer and her former boyfriend has leaked online after her iCloud account got hacked.
In the reportedly two-and-a-half-minute video, the former couple who broke up in 2015 did not engage in sex, but they were seen kissing and cuddling. The video, which appeared to have been filmed on a cellphone, has been viewed almost 300,000 times, hours after it was posted by hacker(s) on Sunday night, February 17.
While it has not been confirmed if the video is real and if it's Nicole and Lewis who are featured in the clip, a source tells The Sun that the 40-year-old singer "will be heartbroken that such footage has found its way online." The source continues, "It was never intended for the public domain."
According to The Sun, the former The Pussycat Dolls member is desperate to get the video taken down. She has reportedly instructed her legal team to get the video featuring him and the F1 driver in bed removed from the internet.
"Nicole wants it down," a so-called insider tells the site. "It's hugely embarrassing and distressing for her to have something this intimate and private out there." The source adds, "She feels hugely violated that someone's been looking through her private pictures and is concerned this is just the start of a nightmare."
The Hawaiian-born beauty allegedly has more private videos and photos, and she is "very worried" that more of them will be leaked "in the next couple of days." The source goes on dishing, "She's particularly worried as she deleted that video a long time ago, so it must have been hacked from the Cloud."
Reps for Nicole and Lewis have not released an official statement regarding the matter. The exes, who met at the Europe Music Awards in 2007, dated on and off for years before calling it quits for good in 2015.
