American star golfer Tiger Woods woke up to a rude shock yesterday when nude pictures of him and ex-girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn were leaked online by a website. According to gossip portal TMZ, Woods, who was charged with driving under influence in late May, has threatened to sue website Celeb Jihad if the pictures are not taken down.
A hacker reportedly broke into Vonn's phone and gained access to her pictures.
A spokesman for the American skier released a statement to People magazine that read: "It is an outrageous and despicable invasion of privacy for anyone to steal and illegally publish private intimate photos. Lindsey will take all necessary and appropriate legal action to protect and enforce her rights and interests. She believes the individuals responsible for hacking her private photos as well as the websites that encourage this detestable conduct should be prosecuted to the fullest extent under the law."
Woods and Vonn dated for nearly three years before splitting in 2015.
