"Call Me Maybe" singer Carly Rae Jepsen has told police she's the latest victim of a perverted hacker who stole XXX photos of the singer from her computer and tried to sell them to various media outlets.
Sources tell TMZ the photos in question are the real deal and have not seen the light of day, and the Canadian-born singer is desperately trying to keep it that way.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Jepsen's camp received an anonymous tip about the pics back in March and immediately called the Vancouver Police Department to report the cyber crime.
Police jumped on the case and confirmed the tip was legitimate, Jepsen had been hacked.
A rep for the Vancouver PD tells TMZ an active investigation is underway "in regards to a theft of electronic property belonging to Jepsen." Police may even already have a potential suspect lined up.
Sources tell TMZ whoever hacked the pics stands to face some serious charges, including criminal harassment and unauthorized access of a computer and could spend some serious time in prison.
Jepsen's rep has not yet returned TMZ's request for comment.
