Madonna Thanks Investigators For Arresting Hacker Who Leaked Rebel Heart


Madonna is showing her gratitude for the investigators who helped make an arrest following the leak of her new album Rebel Heart. A hacker is accused of prematurely releasing the album on the web and could now face jail time for the leak.

News broke earlier this week that investigators in Israel arrested a 39-year-old man who allegedly broke into Madonna's personal computer system and obtained the album.

An arrest was made as part of a joint operation between the FBI and Israel's Lahav 433.

"I am profoundly grateful to the FBI, the Israeli police investigators and anyone else who helped lead to the arrest of this hacker," she said.

"I deeply appreciate my fans who have provided us with pertinent information and continue to do so regarding leaks of my music. Like any citizen, I have the right to privacy," she wrote via Facebook.

She added, "This invasion into my life - creatively, professionally, and personally remains a deeply devastating and hurtful experience, as it must be for all artists who are victims of this type of crime."
