GQ Australia editor Michael Christensen has condemned the leak of a topless photograph taken of Iggy Azalea during a shoot for the magazine.
The 28-year-old rapper was left feeling "embarrassed and violated" after the nude images, which were shot in 2016 and not intended for publication with her cover, were distributed online last weekend.
And now, Christensen has blasted the individual responsible for stealing the images from the photographer Nino Munoz and insists everyone at the magazine is "disappointed" that someone would do this.
In a statement, Christensen said: "We were very disappointed to learn that outtakes from a 2016 photo shoot which were not approved or intended for publication appear to have been stolen from the photographer. We understand an investigation is underway and join the condemnation of the publication of these images."
Following the emergence online of the pictures, Iggy made the decision to suspend all of her social media accounts to avoid the distressing comments about her body from trolls.
