Golfing icon Tiger Woods threatened to sue a trashy celebrity website if it doesn’t remove an X-rated nude photo of himself in a hack that involved his former girlfriend Lindsey Vonn.
The sleazy gossip website Celebrity Jihad published explicit nude pictures that were reportedly hacked from Vonn’s phone. Woods’ phone was not hacked.
The X-rated photos included one full-frontal picture of Woods, a shirtless photo, and a benign couple photo of him and Lindsey. Meanwhile, there were multiple raunchy nude photos of Vonn, reportedly hacked from her cell phone.
Sources told TMZ Woods had sent Vonn the naked photo of himself when they dated. The tabloid site Celebrity Jihad has posted hundreds of hacked celebrity nudes and sex videos.
Despite being sent multiple cease-and-desist letters over the years, the X-rated photos and videos remain online. Some of the naked photos and videos are fake.
Woods’ attorney sent a letter demanding his photos be removed, saying he will sue if they aren’t taken down, sources told TMZ. Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn dated from 2012 until 2015. Vonn partially blamed the intense media scrutiny for their breakup.
“It was essentially being in a fish bowl,” Vonn told E! News. “Everyone’s looking at you and judging you and commenting on what they think is right or wrong.”
Woods is recovering from his fourth back surgery and has not competed on the PGA Tour since February 2017.
In May, he was arrested in Florida after police found him asleep at the wheel of his car. Woods —who was not driving at the time — had five drugs in his system at the time of his arrest. He recently completed a drug detox program for an alleged addiction to prescription painkillers.
Here are some photos of Woods and Vonn at the height of their romance.
