The champion golfer’s lawyer, Michael Holtz, has threatened to hit the website Celeb Jihad with a lawsuit if the photos aren’t removed immediately, according to a Monday, Aug. 21, report from TMZ. Sources said a hacker got into Alpine ski racer Lindsey Vonn’s phone, whom Woods dated for three years before they split in 2015.

The photos were taken while the pair was together and Vonn, also a victim of the leak, said in a statement to People magazine that she plans to take legal action over the “despicable invasion of privacy.”
As of Tuesday morning, photos of the former couple were still on the site.
Miley Cyrus, Kristin Stewart and “American Idol” singer Katherine McPhee are other celebrities who have been targeted by the website.
