Over the weekend, more nude pictures of various female celebrities were released on the internet after hackers were able to access those private files online. Unfortunately for Gabrielle Union and her new husband, Miami Heat star guard Dwyane Wade, pictures of hers were also leaked.

The power couple issued a joint statement condemning the leaks.

"It has come to our attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures," the statement obtained by TMZ reads.

"I can't help but to be reminded that since the dawn of time women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimized, and the power over their own bodies taken from them. These atrocities against women and children continue worldwide."

Earlier this month, hackers initially released dozens of pictures of several famous women. With this latest leak, Union's legal team are said to be urging the FBI to look into the matter and perform a proper investigation.
