According to E! News, the images are partially censored with a black bar covering certain parts of the body.
Although fake nude pictures of Snooki who is currently pregnant with her first child have popped up on the Internet in the past, her spokesperson confirmed to E! News that the pictures are real.
“Clearly these are old and personal photos that were not meant for the public. It’s a shame someone decided to leak them for obvious personal gain,” the spokesperson said.
Snooki joins the ranks of actresses Scarlett Johansson and Blake Lively, who have had nude pictures exposed due to cell phone hacks.
It’s been quite the week for hackers. Sites such as LinkedIn, eHarmony and Internet radio platform Last.fm were also compromised, with millions of member passwords posted to a Russian hacker forum.
