In a joint statement issued by Union and her NBA star husband Dwyane Wade, the recently married couple said they plan to contact the FBI.
“It has come to our attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures,” the statement issued to TMZ said.

One or more hackers appeared to have stolen the images from the actresses’ Apple iCloud accounts, which store private pictures and documents from subscribers’ cell phones and computers.
The FBI and Apple both vowed to investigate the massive leak.
