Here we go again: it’s Celebgate 3.0, and that means a new round of stolen intimate photos of celebrities and tee-hee’ing jerks.

This time around, photos have been gang-grabbed from Miley Cyrus (pictured), Stella Maxwell, Kristen Stewart, Tiger Woods, Lindsey Vonn and Katharine McPhee.

The celebrity leak sites that posted the stolen content don’t merit whatever traffic they might get if we shared their names. Suffice it to say that one of them considers itself a “satirical website” that publishes rumors, speculation, assumptions, opinions, fiction, and what it calls facts… And, obviously, illegal stolen content.

McPhee is taking legal action against the sites that published her content. Ditto for Woods and for Kristen Stewart and her girlfriend, Stella Maxwell.

Vonn, an Olympic skiier and Woods’ former girlfriend, called the theft “a depicable invasion of privacy”. The photos were stolen from her cell phone a few years ago. Her spokesman told People that she’s lawyering up:
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.
Celebs suffered through this type of mugging in 2015 with Celebgate 1.0. In v1, thieves and many equally scumbaggy photo-sharers trampled over the privacy of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Lea Michele, Winona Ryder, Hulk Hogan’s son and Hillary Duff, among dozens of other women celebrities.

The photos in this latest round were still up as of Thursday evening.

We’ve seen multiple men convicted and given jail time over prying open the Gmail and iCloud accounts of Hollywood glitterati, but that sure didn’t stop Celebgate 2.0: in May, we saw the intimate photos of Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried stolen and posted.
