While it doesn’t happen often, there are rare occasions when a male personality’s private imagery is released without authorization. Our industry source told us that it can be hard to truly know.
“When pics come out of someone’s dick, like a selfie, you’ll usually hear about their release being unauthorized. Ninety-nine percent of the time that’s complete BS!”
The insider goes on to share:
“Reps say this to drive the story and create sympathy. They’ll even go so far as to create a Twitter hashtag with the star’s name in a faux sign of support.But when you go to ask the ‘victim’ what they know about the imagery, as in ‘are the pics real’ and ‘how did they get out’, they almost always respond with no comment.”
Several years ago, there was a case where it appeared a true unauthorized release of photos happened with MLB Baseball player Grady Sizemore. Apparently, someone busted into a computer and extracted his NSFW photographs. Once stolen, they were published online.
The MLB spent a considerable amount of time trying to get the images off the web. In large part, they succeeded. But some sites, like DeadSpin, still has them available for viewing. See this link if you are interested.
