New photo hacks target Adele, Harry Styles' mom

Management for Adele are searching for answers after several of the singer's personal photos ended up posted on a Facebook fan page.

"I was appalled and upset for Adele when I saw the pictures. They are really private and should not be passed around," a fan who reported the leak to Adele's management tells the Sun. "If Adele wanted to share these pictures I am sure she would. It would be up to her if she wants intimate pictures like this shown around."

The photos are believed to have been obtained by hacking the personal email of Adele's boyfriend, Simon Konecki. The photos included childhood photos of the singer as well as a sonogram image.

"I think it is disgusting that her so-called fans were sending them around and I thought it should be stopped. They are way too private, especially the scan and picture of her when she was pregnant," the fan said.

And in an apparently unrelated case, personal photos of One Direction member Harry Styles -- including some featuring rumored girlfriend Kendall Jenner -- showed up online this weekend, believed to have been obtained by a fan who hacked the iCloud account of Styles' mother, Anne Cox. Twitter has suspended the account of the user who claimed responsibility for the leak, according to Mashable.
