Rapper Trina had her privacy compromised when her phone was stolen last year, and the person whole swiped the device went and posted ALL of her personal pictures, including some nude images, to the web for the world the see this week.
Speaking to MTV, the female emcee explained how her cell phone was stolen during the BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta last October. And ever since, the person who had possession of the phone has been trying to get her to pay up. But she didn’t and they went and leaked the pics, and now she and the FBI have launched an investigation to look into the situation.
“[The images are] me on a very upset day — I think I was in Canada, upset crying,” she explained. “Just personal stuff. Photos in the studio. I think [one] was me having an allergic reaction, breaking out. I just think it was my personal stuff and for someone to do that is so, so wrong. So now I’m actually having it looked into by the FBI and it’s gonna be a bigger situation than just leaked photos. Hopefully we can deal with the situation and put an end to it.”
Trina admitted she took some racy photos of herself, however all the images that appeared on various sites aren’t from her phone. The rapper said whoever stole the images also placed some photos that are not her in an attempt to sensationalize the set. In addition to a few of the nude images, Trina said some of the photos are clean images of her at birthday celebrations, her with friends and an image of her fresh from a facial.
The set also contains several of Trina holding up her arm, which appears to have a rash of some sort, and she explained those pictures were taken in order to show her doctor — the rapper broke out but wasn’t sure what was causing the ailment. “I don’t recall being allergic to anything, but obviously, yeah [I am],” she said. “I was in the studio recording for a couple of days and just started having breakouts. And my doctor said you’re allergic to shellfish or makeup bronzer.” Her doctor, she said, diagnosed her with Urticaria, which essentially is hives and has since gone away.
