As if Tiger Woods didn’t have enough troubles: Now he’s dealing with naked selfies being leaked online, according to TMZ.

He’s not the only one. His ex-girlfriend, champion skier Lindsey Vonn, was also victimized, as were Miley Cyrus, Kristen Stewart and Katharine McPhee, whose graphic photos were uploaded to the website Celeb Jihad.

According to TMZ sources, Vonn’s phone, not Woods’, was hacked.

Woods apparently has threatened legal action against the sites that have posted fully nude pictures of him, according to Gossip Cop.

It’s not unique incident.

Over the past few months, other violated stars include Amanda Seyfried, Demi Lovato, Kate Hudson, Lucy Hale and Rosario Dawson, says Gossip Cop.

The latest hack is the largest since September 2014, when nude pictures of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and other stars were leaked online.

WORDS ABOUT WHEDON

Director Joss Whedon’s ex-wife has a few pithy words about her former partner’s behavior — in public and behind closed doors.

Kai Cole, in a guest essay on the showbiz industry site The Wrap, accused him of serial cheating during their 16-year marriage.

“I want to let women know that he is not who he pretends to be,” writes Cole.

Whedon, now 53, blamed his affairs on the pressures of the patriarchy, USA Today reports.

She added: “I want the people who worship him to know he is human, and the organizations giving him awards for his feminist work to think twice in the future about honoring a man who does not practice what he preaches.”

Whedon has been considered among the industry’s most outspoken feminists, earned accolades for creating strong female characters like Buffy (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar) and taking on the future Batgirl standalone film for Warner Bros.

But Cole, who met Whedon in 1991, says there was a different story playing out behind the scenes.
