In what has now become a weekly occurrence, several new celebrities' private photos leaked Friday afternoon on 4chan and Reddit in the newly minted "The Fappening 3." This round of photos reportedly features Cara Delevingne, Anna Kendrick, and more images of Jennifer Lawrence.
The photos quickly began circulating on Reddit and 4chan yesterday, and became available through download links at register-only sites. This leak follows last weekend's breach of privacy that featured private images of Rihanna, Amber Heard, Kate Bosworth, and Hope Solo, among others. Photos of Emma Watson, however, were not leaked, after a threat to unveil private photos of the Harry Potter star was revealed to be a hoax.
In this wave of photo leaks, 55 new photos of Jennifer Lawrence were posted, as well as 87 photos of Anna Kendrick, though the actor is clothed in all of them. The remaining stars to have their photos leak in this round are Misty May-Treanor, Alexandra Chando, Kelli Garner, Brook Burns, Lauren O'Neil, as well as a video of Briana Evigan.
"The Fappening 3" comes nearly a month after the first round of celebrity nudes hit the web, and has since been punctuated by a beginning FBI investigation and a statement from Apple, who says an iCloud security breach is not the responsible for the leaks:
We wanted to provide an update to our investigation into the theft of photos of certain celebrities. When we learned of the theft, we were outraged and immediately mobilized Apple's engineers to discover the source. Our customers' privacy and security are of utmost importance to us. After more than 40 hours of investigation, we have discovered that certain celebrity accounts were compromised by a very targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions, a practice that has become all too common on the Internet. None of the cases we have investigated has resulted from any breach in any of Apple's systems including iCloud® or Find my iPhone. We are continuing to work with law enforcement to help identify the criminals involved.
