LOS ANGELES — The FBI says it is addressing allegations that nude photos of several female celebrities have been stolen and posted online.

A statement released by the agency Monday afternoon doesn’t elaborate on what steps are being taken to determine how intimate images of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and other stars were leaked.

The photos of Lawrence and others began appearing online Sunday. The 24-year-old’s publicist called the release of the images a violation of the actress’s privacy.

Apple said Monday it is investigating whether any of its customers’ iCloud accounts had been tampered with.

The FBI has investigated previous leaks of nude celebrity images, including leaks involving Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera and footage shot of television sports reporter Erin Andrews in a Tennessee hotel room.
