Nick Hogan's pictures leaked

Nick Hogan's pictures leaked

Nick Hogan, 24, who appears with his family in reality TV series Hogan Knows Best, had his personal photos released along with those of actresses Nina Dobrev and AnnaLynne McCord, Victoria's Secret model Erin Heatherton and model-actress Joanna Krupa.

The new wave of images were leaked last Thursday, reported the UK's Daily Mirror.

US gossip website TMZ reported that Nick Hogan's photos were "voluminous and graphic" and the images go back as far as his school days. Some of the women include his ex-girlfriends in various states of undress.

TMZ reported that there were two pictures of his mother Linda in a thong, though Nick Hogan said those pictures were not in his iCloud. He also claimed that some of the more explicit pictures do not belong to him.

According to InTouch Weekly, there was speculation that the girls in the photos with Nick were under 18 years old.

Meanwhile, Mr Marty Singer, a prominent Los Angeles entertainment lawyer, has written a letter to Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, executive chairman Eric Schmidt and Google lawyers, accusing them of "blatantly unethical behaviour".

According to the New York Post, the document claims that Google has failed "to act expeditiously, and responsibly to remove the images, but in knowingly accommodating, facilitating and perpetuating the unlawful conduct".

It added: "Google is making millions and profiting from the victimisation of women."

The lawyer said that his firm sent a notice to remove the images four weeks ago, and several more since, but many of the photos are still on BlogSpot and YouTube, which are both owned by Google.

A Google spokesman told the Daily Mirror: "We've removed tens of thousands of pictures - within hours of the requests being made - and we have closed hundreds of accounts. The Internet is used for many good things. Stealing people's private photos is not one of them".
