Iggy Azalea was left “embarrassed” and “angry” after her topless photos were leaked online, and now the photographer that took them has addressed the situation.
Photographer Nino Muñoz took the nude images of the ‘Fancy’ rapstress for her GQ Australia Magazine cover in 2016, and has since released a statement responding to the recent leak.
“I’m outraged and saddened to find out that images of mine were stolen and published without my permission,” wrote Muñoz in a post on Instagram.
“There is currently an investigation underway. Posting these stolen images is illegal and anyone who has done so will be prosecuted.”
He continued, “I empathise with any discomfort that this situation has caused to anyone that is involved.” Nino captioned the post, “My heart goes out to anyone this situation has affected. I’m utterly outraged and will not rest until justice is served.”
Iggy, 28, has since deleted all of her social media accounts. Beforehand, she issued a statement on the leaked images.
“Today I’m a ball of negative emotions,” she wrote. “I feel blindsided, embarrassed, violated, angry, sad and a million other things. Not solely because I did not consent to this — but also because of the vile way people have reacted.”
She continued: “A lot of the comments I see from men in particular taking things even further and sharing their thoughts and fantasies in regards to my body has honestly disturbed me.”
“The outright wicked things people say is overwhelming & makes me feel like throwing up,” she said. “If you’ve ever been humiliated before in front of family & those you care about maybe you can relate to what I’m going through.”
