Extreme's Nuno Bettencourt Reacts To Nude Photos Leak


(Classic Rock) Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt has apologized after full-frontal naked pictures of him were posted on his Instagram account. Bettencourt, 50, says his personal computer files were hacked and the images put on his Instagram page without his knowledge.

Images of his family were also posted in Tuesday's (September 20) hack. The Instagram account was temporarily suspended while the leak was dealt with. The images were live for a couple of hours.

In a Facebook post, which has since been deleted, Bettencourt says: "I got woken up from a dead sleep with my door being banged on in my hotel room. I knew it could only be bad news, but once I was told what was happening, I couldn't comprehend it.

"Basically, my accounts were compromised. But what's worse were the photos. I want to apologize to all of you, my friends, my family, but especially my kids." Read more here.
