McKayla Maroney is pretty angry about her nude photos being leaked this weekend.
Her photos were stolen by a hacker and released along with those of other celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Lea Michele, Gabrielle Union, Hayden Panettiere, Hilary Duff, Mary-Kate Olsen, Selena Gomez, and Kirsten Dunst.
Of course, all of these ladies are at some level of anger or another. Kaley Cuoco managed to (sort of) laugh the situation off, but McKayla Maroney has another very serious reason to be upset, according to TMZ.
Not only were nude photos of her posted on porn sites all over the web, Maroney was allegedly underage when those photos were taken.
Now, she has reportedly become involved in a legal battle to get the pics removed. Unfortunately, millions of people have already seen them.
However, that doesn’t seem to be stopping her legal team from fighting.
McKayla Maroney’s legal team has reportedly sent letters to various pornography websites like Porn.com insisting that Maroney owns the copyright to the images. They are also demanding that the sites remove the pictures because she is underage in them.
Maroney, who just turned 18 in December, has insisted that the photos on the websites are fake, but her legal action seems to say otherwise. It has been suggested that perhaps parts of the photos are real, while other parts are fake.
Either way, if the photos prove to be taken before Maroney was 18, it could easily lead to child pornography charges against the sites that posted her stolen pictures. This is quite a mess for McKayla Maroney to be dealing with and a shock for all involved.
Hopefully these women, especially McKayla Maroney, can get this situation rectified as soon as possible so that they can have some peace. Until the next time their private photos are stolen, anyway.
