The British hacker who infiltrated Selena Gomez’s private Facebook and threatened to publish their private emails has been sentenced to jail time, reports The Sun. Gareth Crosskey also posted ‘Justin Bieber sucks’ on her page which many Beliebers saw and were upset about.
At the time JELENA had not made their relationship public and Beliebers attacked Selena with constant hatemail. Crosskey, 21, was tracked down by the FBI and the Met Police’s e-crime unit in a £50,000 investigation. He claimed he wanted to point out security lapses to Facebook bosses after his own account was hacked.
Crosskey, who was working at McDonald’s, posed as Selena’s stepfather Brian Teefey, the administrator of her page. He then persuaded staff to reset her password. He posted a video on YouTube showing how he had hacked the page. He also wrote to Mr. Teefey claiming he had access to at least four personal email accounts and had copied messages sent between Gomez and Bieber, 18. He also said he had other emails between Gomez and her best friend Demi Lovato.
