The authorities in Canada have launched an investigation after pop star Carly Rae Jepsen was allegedly targeted by a hacker.
The Canadian singer recently filed a report claiming a cyber-crook had illegally accessed her computer and stolen "electronic property," believed to be personal pictures, according to TMZ.com.
Officials at the Vancouver Police Department have confirmed they have launched an investigation, telling the website they are focusing on the alleged theft of "electronic property belonging to Jepsen."
The news is the latest setback for the Call Me Maybe star after she was recently forced to deny being featured in a sex tape which emerged on the Internet. She branded the rumors "ridiculous" and insisted the girl in the film was "obviously not me."
