A woman has been charged with 11 felonies stemming from the hacking of the email of Selena Gomez and one of the singer’s associates.
Los Angeles County prosecutors said Friday (July13) that 21-year-old Susan Antrach of Ridgefield Park, New Jersey, has been charged with five identity-theft counts, five fraud counts and one count of accessing and using data without permission.
The charges are felonies that collectively could get her nearly 10 years in prison.
Prosecutors allege Antrach accessed the accounts of the 25-year-old Gomez and the unnamed associate several times in 2015 and 2016, and also posted private media from the accounts online.
The singer was the victim of a hacking in 2017, in which nude photos of ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber were posted to her Instagram account. It was not immediately clear if those photos were the subject of the criminal charges.
