The nude photos were the same ones previously released in October 2015 when the pop star was on vacation in Bora Bora.
Gomez has since reclaimed her Instagram account after initially deactivating it and has deleted the photos, Variety reported. The former Disney channel star has the most followers on the photo sharing platform with 125 million.
The hackers captioned the nude photos, “LOOK AT THIS [expletive] LIL SHRIMPY” and included their Instagram account names claiming that they “run da scene,” TMZ noted.
Gomez and Bieber famously dated and enjoyed an on-again, off-again relationship that they first confirmed in 2011. Gomez is now dating The Weeknd.
