Lindsey Vonn is the latest victim of female celebrity phone hacking, PEOPLE has learned.

While the hack of Vonn’s personal cell phone – and subsequent leaked intimate photos of her and ex-boyfriend Tiger Woods – left the Olympic skier stunned, she is ready to fight back.

“It is an outrageous and despicable invasion of privacy for anyone to steal and illegally publish private intimate photos,” Vonn’s spokesman says in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE.

“Lindsey will take all necessary and appropriate legal action to protect and enforce her rights and interests. She believes the individuals responsible for hacking her private photos as well as the websites that encourage this detestable conduct should be prosecuted to the fullest extent under the law.”

The photos were taken several years ago while Vonn, 32, and Woods were dating.

Vonn, who split from Woods in 2015, has been dating former Los Angeles Rams assistant coach Kenan Smith since last year.
