Former golfer Paige Spiranac has opened up on the horror of having a nude photo leaked, revealing how the stigma of the scandal haunted her for years.
Speaking on her new podcast Playing-A-Round, the 26-year-old — also a social media celebrity with more than two million Instagram followers who refers to herself as the "OG Insta golf girl" — explained how she felt "violated" after she was betrayed by someone she cared deeply about when he shared the intimate picture among friends.
A self-confessed "people pleaser", Spiranac sent the photo because she wanted the guy she was dating to like her but was shocked to find out he'd forwarded it to mates after their romantic relationship ended.
Making matters worse, his friends refused to tell Spiranac how they got the photo and she was inundated with messages from strangers who had seen the private picture asking if it was really her.
