Teyana Taylor was the latest victim of an Internet scandal when a nude photo of her surfaced this week. The 21-year-old singer expressed her anger over the leak, attributing it to a hacker who stole her phone.
“It really hurt my feelings that someone would be so evil and mean,” wrote Teyana, while shooting down reports that she leaked the image herself. “I would never leak photos like that of myself. I have way more class & respect for myself as a young woman.”
Teyana will release her new single “DUI” featuring Fabolous and Jadakiss on February 25. Her EP The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor is set to follow on
February 29 March 12.
Read her open letter below.
Look I’m human, & just like every girl in this world, I admire my body so i take pics just like EVERY other human being. However my phone that was stolen Witch my phone was also connected to my twitter. So i guess the hacker felt the need to have a field day and leaked personal photos, and also tweet mean & hurtful things about me. I ain’t gone front It really hurt my feelings that someone would be so evil and mean. I would never leak photos like that of my self. I have so many blessings and opportunities ahead of me & I have way more class & respect for my self as a young woman. So there’s no need to seek attention. But I sincerely apologize to all my supporters and followers who had to witness the devil at work, and at what he does best. Karma is a $&@# but I’ll let God handle that. that’s it that’s all.
