Florida-resident Joseph Bernard Campbell hacked the private email accounts of 19 women, most of whom he was familiar with, and stole naked and nearly-naked pictures of them. Then, he posted them as the women's Facebook profile photos, exposing them to public humiliation of the worst kind. Reports indicate Campbell's goal was to "harass the victims and cause them emotional distress."
Anger and revenge can make people do some pretty outlandish things. If you're Greg Fultz, it'll push you to post a billboard that shows your ex just how you feel. When Fultz found out that his then-girlfriend had an abortion against his wishes, he decided to put up a billboard in Alamogordo, N.M., with a picture of him cradling an outline of an infant in his arms. To make it more hard-hitting, the sign reads, "This Would Have Been a Picture of My 2-month Old Baby if the Mother Had Decided Not to Kill Our Child!"
Gwen Stefani is taking out her frustration over Courtney Love's recent revelation that she had an affair with Gwen's husband, Gavin Rossdale, shortly before the two were married in 2002 by writing new songs for No Doubt about the sordid business. "A lot of the new songs are about Gavin and what a jerk he is," a source told X17online.
Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr's spring breakup is affecting their Gossip Girl costars now that the show is back in production. The New York Post's Page Six reports that Ed "is heartbroken and wants nothing to do with" Jessica, and that he's "alienated Jessica from the rest of the cast."

Last Friday, Kate Major confirmed Hailey Glassman's claim that Jon Gosselin has a small package. In an interview with Life & Style magazine, Kate said, "I'm surprised he's so 'cocky' because down there he's definitely not." Supposedly, the former rivals are now pals, having laughed together over Jon's genital shortcomings. We're not convinced that Hailey and Kate 2.0 are the winners here. Jon might be "hung like a 9-year-old boy," as Hailey so eloquently put it, but she and Ms. Major were the ones who took that three-inch wonder for a ride. Before you trash-talk a former flame, remember that the people you've dated reflects on you and your ability to pick a partner. That being said, here are our tips for (not) dissing your ex:
They say revenge is a dish best served cold. Thankfully, these ten jilted lovers ignored that old adage, otherwise we wouldn't have such a fun, ridiculous and hot list. Love can make you do a lot of crazy things, but the loss of love put these folks over the edge, online, and in some case…on fire!
Should you get revenge on an ex? If you've ever had a cold-hearted lout stomp all over your heart, you may be saying yes. Revenge makes you feel better, and if it's not illegal or violent, why not give yourself the satisfaction of seeing your ex suffer? On the other hand, maybe getting revenge will actually make you feel worse. It's not going to win you any points in the integrity game, and that momentary gratification might give way to regret. Here, Ted McPherson (anti-revenge) and Judy McGuire (pro-revenge) debate: is getting revenge a good idea? Read what they have to say, and let us know what you think in the comments.
In case you're not aware, there has been an awful lot of cheatin' and mistreatin' going on in the celebrity world lately. And celebrity automobiles are suffering the consequences. This time around, Eddie Cibrian's wife, Brandi Glanville, slashed the tires of his Harley Davidsons. The woman scorned channeled Carrie Underwood and got revenge on the unfaithful actor by teaching his vehicles a lesson. No word on if LeAnn Rimes favorite bicycle built-for-two was similarly vandalized.
A fight between former common law spouses in Pasadena, Texas took a turn for the ugly and their pets suffered the consequences. The non-couple were in an argument over the ownership of some jewelry that the man had gifted to the woman but took back after the split. The woman took her revenge on the family pets. In a burst of Zeus-ian comeuppance, she kidnapped and fried their the goldfish from his home and ate them. The man was incensed and called the police.
Digital libel is a pretty big problem on the interweb. It's easy to hide behind a computer screen and launch anonymous attacks on ones enemies. The case of Liskula Cohen may change all of that. The model has sued to obtain the identity of a blogger who defamed her. This could make getting web revenge on one's ex a much more serious matter.
There is an understanding amongst the population, particularly rich, powerful men, that you can just buy your way out of trouble. And this has largely worked since mankind has introduced the concept of money and nice stuff. In fact, I'm pretty sure jewelry was invented as an addendum to the formal verbal apology. And precious gems were coveted for their purported (though largely false) ability to make everyone just cool out about a little action on the side. Robert Charlton, Kobe Bryant and George Burns have at least one thing in common.
After naked snapshots of Rihanna made the rounds on the Internet earlier this month, an informant told Star magazine that the 21-year-old songstress blames her allegedly abusive ex-boyfriend, R&B singer Chris Brown. And although the Brown camp vehemently denies the allegation, Rihanna doesn't seem to be buying it. She's threatening to release a few unflattering shots of Brown in the buff as payback.
