Gabrielle Union is one of the latest celebrities to get caught up in the sweep of nude photo leaks.
BET viewers have already seen plenty of Gabrielle’s body on “Being Mary Jane,” but the recently married actress at least had some control over how much of her appeared on-screen. She had the power to refuse to do those intimate scenes.
Unfortunately, the “Think Like A Man Too” star did not have any say when four very revealing shots of herself appeared online Saturday. Gabrielle is completely exposed in three nude selfies that were taken in a bathroom.
In one shot, she’s only shown from the waist up, but she isn’t covering anything up. Gabrielle was a little more modest when she posed topless again in another shot, where she’s wearing panties and holding an arm across her breasts. She was the most exposed in a completely nude profile shot she took while sitting on the edge of her bathroom sink.
There’s no word on when these pictures may have been taken, but it should be noted that Gabrielle is holding a phone with a picture of her and new hubby Dwyane Wade on the case. It’s also suspected that the photos may have been released by the same hackers that put out nude pics of Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton.
Gabrielle was completely clothed in the final shot, but there was a lot of underboob going on. We’re not showing the pictures on Hello Beautiful, but you can click here if you want to see them.
Even though people often tend to criticize the decision to take nudies, it should not be disregarded that this is still an invasion of privacy. Hopefully these leaks won’t spoil Gabrielle’s honeymoon.

Gabrielle is not allowing herself to be victimized by the release of her nudes. Instead, TMZ reports that her lawyers will be contacting the FBI because she believes that these leaks are a digital hate crime. “It has come to [my] attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures,” Gabrielle said in a statement released Saturday.
“I can’t help but to be reminded that since the dawn of time women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimized, and the power over their own bodies taken from them,” she continued. “For anyone out there also being affected by these and other hacking and hate crimes – We send our love, support and prayers. We have done nothing wrong.”
Hackers also targeted Meagan Good, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna this weekend. Kim’s pics were blasted on Saturday, and two shots of Rihanna were posted to Reddit early this morning. One of Rihanna’s shots was edited to censor her breasts, but the other leak showed her entire behind. TMZ suspects that she took them during a dress fitting.
Meagan went to Twitter to tell her followers know that she’s not ashamed that she took pictures because they were never intended for the public anyway.
