Cardi B isn’t mad about the public seeing her in compromising positions. But she is planning on finding and taking legal action against hackers who criminally obtained and leaked the images in question.

On Tuesday, her lawyer Scott Mason told TMZ that her team is trying to find out who released videos of the nude rapper.

Over the holiday weekend, someone got into her fiancé Offset’s phone and leaked a video of the rapper from Migos with an apparent other woman, as well as nude images of Cardi.

In response, the “Bodak Yellow” singer and Offset even posted a joke sex tape of themselves, fully clothed, on Instagram live.

And on Twitter, Cardi B shared, “People keep posting the nude videos of me like if I wasn’t a stripper before … Anyways I know I got a nice body, right.”

We somehow think this nicely-timed brouhaha has something to do with the release of her new single.

BIG FAT GROCERY CART

Lainie Kazan, most famous for playing Nia Vardalos’ mom in “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” has been busted for shoplifting from a grocery store.

Kazan, 77, allegedly walked out of a San Fernando Valley Gelson’s supermarket without paying for about $180 worth of food, TMZ reported.

E! News says local police confirmed that Kazan was cited for shoplifting and released, and offered no other details.


MUCH ADO ABOUT MAKEUP

Rihanna, who knows how to sell, isn’t taking guff from folks who didn’t appreciate her ad for her new lipstick line.

In one picture promoting a deep brown shade, someone on Instagram rudely commented that the singer looked “high as s—.”

Her snappy repsonse: “or PMS’d.”

It just so happens that PMS is the name of a new lip color in her popular Fenty Beauty line of products designed for people of all skin tones.

QUICK TAKES

“America’s Got Talent” is hosting open auditions for folks of any age, of any talent, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Jan. 19 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center; prospective contestants can just show up. Who knows? Maybe they’ll follow in the footsteps of 2017 winner, darling 12-year-old singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer from Oklahoma City; she beat equally adorable vocalist Angelica Hale, 10, of Atlanta.
