Madonnais ‘profoundly grateful’ that a man suspected of leaking her upcoming album has been arrested.
The 56-year old singer was left infuriated in December when tracks fromRebel Heart appeared online but a 39-year old Israeli has now been arrested in Tel Aviv by the Lahav 433 crime-fighting agency for ‘breaking into’ her computer and the ‘Hung Up’ hitmaker has expressed her relief at the news.
She wrote on Facebook: ‘I am profoundly grateful to the FBI, the Israeli Police investigators and anyone else who helped lead to the arrest of this hacker. 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.
‘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.’
