The unfortunate part of this digital age has resurfaced yet again as hackers stole private photos and video from stars like Emma Watson, Amanda Seyfried, and now WWE star Paige. Now the WWE and Total Divas star has commented on the ordeal via social media.
Personal and private photos of mine were stolen and unfortunately they were shared publicly without my consent.— PAIGE (@RealPaigeWWE) March 17, 2017
Paige, real name Saraya-Jade Bevis, is just the latest in an ongoing issue and decided to address it directly on Twitter. First, she retweeted her brother's tweet that read "Bang on 👍👍 all u need is family,f##k everyone else 😊😊", which also contained an image that said "When you've hit rock bottom before and survived. There are very few things in life that can scare you."
She then posted another tweet that said: "Personal and private photos of mine were stolen and unfortunately they were shared publicly without my consent." Many have been supportive of the superstar, who is recovering from neck surgery that she received earlier this year. The last time this type of hack happened it affected stars like Emma Stone, Brie Larson, Kate Upton, and Jennifer Lawrence. In that 2014 case, the hacker was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
It's unknown whether Paige or Watson will file pursue legal action, but Seyfried is already doing so.
As for Paige, she is still under contract with the company but is far more known these days for her activities outside the ring. Her relationship with WWE is rather strained, and some see this as a possible avenue for the WWE to let her go. That shouldn't be the case, though, as it would seem completely backward to release her for being a victim of an unauthorized hack, and hopefully, fans will see her in a WWE ring once again.
