Tiger Threatens Lawsuit Over Leaked Nude Photos


While the solar eclipse dominated the news on Monday afternoon, Tiger Woods was among a rash of celebrities who had nude photos hacked and leaked onto the internet. Reports indicate that the intimate pictures of the 41-year-old 14-time major champion were stolen from former girlfriend and Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn’s phone.

Shortly after the photos being leaked, Woods and his team are threatening legal action against the website that posted them.

Golf.com’s Khadrice Rollins has the latest on the potential lawsuit.

Tiger Woods might sue a website over posting leaked nude photos of the golfer, according to TMZ. TMZ is reporting that Woods’ attorney is threatening to sue Celeb Jihad for posting naked photos of Woods.


Along with Woods, TMZ reports that his former girlfriend and Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn and other celebrities also had photos posted on the site.

According to TMZ, the photos of Woods and Vonn came from Vonn’s phone, which was hacked. Woods and Vonn were together for almost three years before breaking up in 2015.

Woods’s camp has not immediately responded to a request for comment.
