LaPaglia caught up in security breach
Actor Anthony LaPaglia is the latest celebrity to have his iCloud account hacked.
Last week, the Without A Trace star alerted his Instagram followers to a scammer who had stolen personal images from his tech devices and uploaded them to a fake Instagram account in his name.
“THIS PERSON IS A FAKE . Hacked into my iCloud .PLEASE REPORT” LaPaglia wrote alongside screenshots of the fake account.
In another post the actor poked fun at the hacker’s poor use of grammar. “If you’re going to fake my account can you at least (a) be polite to your ‘fans’ (b) use grammatically correct English you dope shit.”
In 2014, hundreds of photographs of naked celebrities, including Kate Upton, Jennifer Lawrence and Ariana Grande surfaced on the internet after their iCloud accounts were hacked. But luckily for LaPaglia his fake social media doppelganger was shortlived. “He’s taken it down in record time. Thanks for all your alerts. If he pops back up let me know. Law enforcement has enough to track whoever it is down.” LaPaglia posted.
Baby joy for Pottsy
Sydney expatriate Nicholas ‘Pottsy’ Potts has welcomed his first child, a baby girl, Henrietta Moon, two years after tying the knot.
The New York-based photographer and his jeweller wife Elizabeth welcomed ‘Henri’ two weeks before Christmas in an intimate water-birth in the Catskill Mountains in southeastern New York State.
Elizabeth thanked her husband on Instagram for his support during the arduous labour. “@pottsypotts you were everything during that 36hr journey and we couldn’t have done it without you,” she told her large social media following.
Potts, a former model, grew up in Woollahra and followed his father Tony’s footsteps into photography. Prior to marrying Elizabeth, Potts had a high-profile romance with Aussie model Jess Hart. They were together for six years before splitting in 2010.
New chapter for Justine Kendall
