Adele is the latest celebrity to have her private photos leaked online. The hacker reportedly got hold of the Hello hitmaker's private pictures, through her partner Simon Konecki's email and posted them on one of the singer's fan page on Facebook.

In the series of photos leaked, one of the image is a baby scan of her son Angelo. In another picture, the 27-year-old singer can be seen lying on the bed with champagne bottle and cigarette in hand, while she was in her 20's. Other pictures include of her pregnancy selfies, singer's new born son, and some from her teenage days.

Meanwhile, all the photographs have been taken down by Adele's management after they were alerted by one of her "upset" fan. The unidentified person told The Sun: "I was appalled and upset for Adele when I saw the pictures. They are really private and should not be passed around."

"I think it is disgusting that her so-called fans were sending them around and I thought it should be stopped. They are way too private, especially the scan and picture of her when she was pregnant. If Adele wanted to share these pictures I am sure she would. It would be up to her if she wants intimate pictures like this shown around," the fan added.

The British singer, who is very conservative about her privacy is said to be "horrified and furious" on the whole incident. An unnamed source close to the Grammy winner told the newspaper: "It is exactly this sort of thing that Adele does not like about fame. She may be emotional on stage and share her feelings with fans, but she believes there should be limits."

"She was angry and upset when her management told her about the pictures and would have told them to get on it straight away," the source continued.

Currently, the Skyfall songwriter is in her London leg of 107-show world tour.
