FBI Arrests Man Suspected Of Hacking Scarlett Johansson And Others


By Daniel Gates



The FBI has arrested a man suspected of hacking phones and email accounts belonging to Hollywood stars including Scarlett Johansson and Vanessa Hudgens and leaking their photos.

“Operation Hackerazzi,” as it’s called, made the bust on Wednesday morning.

Sources within the FBI confirm to Gossip Cop that it was an individual in Florida, acting alone.

He has not yet been identified.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Hudgens met with investigators last March after nude photos of the “High School Musical” star were distributed online.

Naked shots of Johansson were swiped and circulated last month.

Actresses including Ali Later, Emma Caulfield and Busy Phillips have also reportedly been targeted by the suspect.

The FBI plans to hold a press conference this afternoon.

Gossip Cop will have updates.
