A large media and entertainment law firm in the US representing top-notch celebrities like Priyanka Chopra, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Bruce Springsteen and more has experienced a major data breach where hackers got access to personal data of these celebrities. The trove of data stolen from the New York-based firm by hackers “a total of 756GB” includes contracts, nondisclosure agreements, phone numbers and email addresses, and “personal correspondence “, reports Variety.
