On April 23, Kate opened up about the nude photo leak, better known as the “fappening,” and how the scandal has affected her sense of privacy.
The photos Upton refers to in the interview showed her in a series of very provocative poses by herself and also with her boyfriend, Justin Verlander.
Elaborating on her devastation, the model said:
“It was very difficult. It’s an invasion of my privacy and it’s not OK. It’s illegal. People don’t have a right to look at those photos or to judge them.”
It sounds like the 22-year-old is still understandably very hurt by the scandal.
Considering a big chunk of Kate’s star power relies on social media, we can understand why she felt compelled to stay!
We hope Upton is able to one day find some sense of closure on the matter!
