Photos purporting to show a nude Jennifer Lawrence are making their way around on the Internet as part of what appears to be a massive celebrity hacking campaign.
The photos claiming to be of Lawrence were taken in various locations -- some of them appear to be taken in a dressing room, while others are more intimate. Some of the photos show the woman who is allegedly Lawrence taking the photos herself, while others appear to be taken by someone else.
A few of the photos show what appears to be Lawrence in various bathing suits ... but others are fully nude.
There are a ton of other partially nude photos of celebrities posted today ... the alleged victims include Kate Upton, Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, Kirsten Dunst, Hope Solo, Krysten Ritter, Yvonne Strahovski, and Teresa Palmer.
Lawrence's spokespeople tell TMZ, "This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence."
We're reaching out to the reps for the women involved. So far, no word back ...
Story developing ...
Update 3:25 PM PT -- Victoria Justice denied the photos going around claiming to be her are authentic, writing on Twitter, "These so called nudes of me are FAKE people. Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*"
Mary Elizabeth Winstead, also part of the leak, confirmed the photos of her were real, writing, "Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this. Feeling for everyone who got hacked. To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves."
Cash For Crash
In PCH Accident
10 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan's still paying for her past mistakes ... she just reached a settlement with the truck driver she slammed into on PCH 2 years ago ... and we're told there was a financial payoff.
TMZ broke the stories ... Lindsay crashed her Porsche 911S into a semi-truck ... then lied to cops saying her assistant had been driving. The truck driver sued her for mental and physical suffering.
But the case will never go to trial ... because the trucker's attorney, Carrington Snyder, from the Vititoe Law Group reached an out of court settlement this past week with Lohan's legal team.
Terms of the deal are confidential ... but sources close to the negotiations say Lindsay accepted responsibility for the crash and the driver will collect some cash -- not from Lindsay, but from her insurance company.

Photog Claims ...
I Could've Had Him Arrested
8/31/2014 4:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The photographer who got into it with Alec Baldwin in the Hamptons on Sunday claims police were prepared to arrest Alec ... until he decided to let it all go.
As TMZ first reported, Alec went ballistic on a photog who was shooting him with his wife, Hilaria and kid in a park.
The camera guy in question (his name is Matt) says he was shooting the Baldwins from far away when Hilaria, Alec's wife, started screaming at him -- and before long, he claims Alec started pushing and shoving him.
Matt claims the first officer on the scene saw Alec grab him and put him in a headlock -- and the officer was ready to arrest Alec on the spot, but Matt says he told the cop he did not want to press charges.
TMZ also spoke with a close friend of the Baldwins ... who says the whole headlock claim is total BS. The friend also questioned the pap's credibility because he called Hilaria a "bitch" and a "whore" when she attempted to protect her child from the photog.
East Hampton PD had no comment about the incident.

The family of "Big Brother 16" houseguest Victoria Rafaeli is fuming mad over a joke Frankie Grande made about 2 guys teaming up to take Victoria's virginity ... and they want apologies from him AND his sister Ariana.
During the livestream on Saturday, Grande told two male houseguests they should "double team" Victoria and "take all her virginities." He then made a bunch of extremely sexual gestures. Just watch the video.
Victoria's mother, Lizabeth, tells TMZ she definitely took Frankie's comments to be a "rape joke" and feels her daughter is now a "target for rape" because producers did nothing to stop Frankie's rant.
She tells TMZ, “I want Frankie to imagine people saying this stuff about his sister and see if he thinks it's funny.”

Hamptons Police Swarm (UPDATE)
8/31/2014 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
11:15 AM PT -- A close friend of the Baldwins tells TMZ ... Alec was in the park with his wife Hilaria and their baby when a paparazzo approached them. According to the friend, Baldwin has some history with the photog -- he's allegedly called Hilaria a bitch and a whore in the past -- which is why Alec immediately got so angry.
A cop who was nearby tried to calm things down, but felt he needed backup ... it was Alec Baldwin, after all.
We're told one of the responding officers successfully cooled down the situation -- and even got Alec and the photog to shake hands before they walked away!
Alec Baldwin got very angry this morning in the Hamptons, and there was an immediate show of force from the local police department.
In the video, shot in East Hampton ... Alec is on a sidewalk talking to two police officers. His voice is raised, but it's hard to make out why he's pissed.
Whatever it was ... it was serious enough that THREE other patrol cars quickly rolled up with their sirens blaring. Toward the end of the clip. you can hear Alec yell, "I want this man arrested!"
It's unclear what got Baldwin so heated, or who he wanted tossed in jail.

Despite the fact he called her a "pig" in open court ... despite the fact he's STILL suing her ... Donald Sterling got together with estranged wife Shelly to celebrate their 60th anniversary on the beach ... and TMZ Sports has the shocking photo.

As one source put it, "It looks weird from the outside ... but it's just the way they are."

Can't stay mad at that forever.
