Jill Scott is the latest celebrity to be affected by this recent nude photo leak scandal, but the singer has opted to take the high road and share some words of wisdom over social media. Scott first admitted that one of the photos, one of her in a robe, was her, but denies taking a second in which she appears topless.
"I def took the 1st pic w/ a robe; weight loss chronicle but the 2nd, sorry freaks, is not me. I wish I had that space between my thighs," she wrote on Twitter.
She returned to tweet a few more comments in regards to the buzz surrounding the photos.
"1) How quickly they forget (smh). I did nothing wrong & nothing that was YOUR snake concern. My photo was hacked; my PRIVACY INVADED," she began.
"2) I will not be bowed. I have earned every inch of my life. What u see, you cannot touch & if it’s not ❤️ & understanding-
3) you are not a part of my village therefore making your attempt to harm me null. I'm not even delayed. Shame for spreading. Shame 4 adding
4) I love and appreciate my body. My style has always been graceful. Love Village I see you & feel you too. Thank you for being beautifully
