Clay Buchholz‘s wife confirmed reports that nude photos of her were stolen by hackers.
Talking to TMZ on Wednesday, Lindsay Clubine, a former game show model, said the photos — which were intended only for her husband — were accessed from Buchholz’s phone.
“This is a terrible crime,” she said, adding: “I have my attorneys removing the pictures. This is very upsetting to my family and I.”
She made it clear she doesn’t hold the pitcher responsible.
“Clay and I are good. I sent him pictures on the road,” she explained.
Clubine also told TMZ that some other more explicit photos making the rounds are not of her, as some have claimed.
“There are pics on his phone that [a teammate] sent some of the guys that are NOT me,” she said.
Clubine, who married Buchholz in 2009, initially vented her frustration in a tweet Tuesday, writing: A woman should be able to send her husband pics of herself with out fear of the whole world seeing them! iCloud hackers should be ashamed!!
News of the hacking scandal first broke in early September. Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and his girlfriend, model Kate Upton, were among those victimized. Some victims, such as actress Gabrielle Union, who is married to NBA star Dwyane Wade, reached out to the FBI for assistance. Clubine would not say if she planned to take a similar approach.
“We’re taking all the necessary measures,” she said.
