Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez’s Private Emails Hacked: See More Hacked Stars (PHOTOS)
New details have emerged (via The Sun) after Justin Bieber had his privacy invaded by an online hacker who gained access to Selena Gomez‘s Facebook page and threatened to publish their private emails. This all went down before the couple made their relationship public.
The hacker, a 21-year-old British McDonald’s employee Gareth Crosskey, was caught in by the FBI’s e-crime unit. He claimed the stint was intended to show Facebook security issues after his own account had been hacked. He went so far as to post a video on YouTube showing how he’d hacked the account and allegedly offered magazines personal info about Selena. Once they they tracked him down, he was jailed for a year.
After he paid for his crimes, there was a positive turnabout for the one-time hacker. He’s since enrolled in a college course designing computer games. His attorney tells The Sun: “He accepts his actions have caused distress and alarm and he accepts that his actions were stupid.” The privacy threat has obviously done little to affect Bieber and Gomez’s relationship. They’ve been going strong for over a year and a half!
