Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kylie is the most followed person on Snapchat, but found her account compromised when somebody named chikri95 gained access.
The hacker claimed that he had naked pictures of the 19-year-old, telling people to add their account ‘for Kylie’s nudes’.
A Twitter account linked to chikri95 also tweeted: ‘I GOT KYLIES NUDES AHAHHA.’
However, the anonymous hacker now appears to have admitted that they lied about having naked pictures in order to get more followers.
The hacker’s alleged Twitter account, chikri98, sent a tweet reading: ‘K she aint got nudes lol but rt my pinned tweet i want clout lol.’
This isn’t the first time Kylie has been targeted with a fake scandal.
Last year, a clip was circulated on social media claiming to show the lip kit mogul having sex with then-boyfriend Tyga.
However, when the explicit video was directed at Kylie on Twitter, she laughed it off, responding: ‘Lmao no that’s not me!!!’
The star’s rep also denied that Kylie had filmed a sex tape.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan have experience in dealing with such situations – Kim Kardashian, of course, shot to worldwide fame when her sex tape with then-boyfriend Ray J was leaked.
