Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Paris Hilton amongst list of celebrities who have had their personal and financial details hacked and posted online
A number of celebrities including Beyoncé and Jay-Z have had their personal and financial details hacked and posted online.
The hacker obtained the social security numbers, mortgage amounts, credit card bills, car loans and banking details of the super couple and other celebrities, including Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Mel Gibson and Ashton Kutcher, and has posted them onto a website.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and US Vice President Joe Biden have also had their accounts compromised- although the information gathered on the two of them is reportedly incomplete- as did FBI Director Robert Mueller, Attorney General Eric Holder and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck.
The LAPD has launched an investigation into the hacking, while the FBI is also currently looking into it.
