Jennifer Lawrence has been bit by another controversy. A man has claimed that he is Oscar Winning actress's ex boyfriend and is a computer hacker.

Brad Jackson, who claimed that he dated Lawrence in his pre-teen years, suggested that the actress is a kind of a person who can shed clothes for a film but on her own terms, according to a report by Independent

"She's the type of person who would have done a nude scene but would've wanted to make the decision on her own," he said to The Sun, adding, "The fact a hacker did it [leaked the pictures] was pretty s**ty - but that's the kind of field I'm in."

Jackson also said that he is not a kind of hacker who would leak private photos.

Lawrence recently became a victim of photo leak when her alleged nude photos were leaked on infamous 4chan forum. More than 100 racy photos of the actress reportedly stolen from her iCloud account were leaked and splashed across the Internet. Photos of several other celebrities, including Kaley Cuoco, Kim Kardashian, and Ariana Grande were also leaked.

Lawrence reacted to the leaked photos terming ut as "sexual violation" and "disgusting." She also said that people do such things as they think they can make profit out of it and laws are somehow responsible for it.

"Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody's mind is to make a profit from it. It's so beyond me. I just can't imagine being that detached from humanity. I can't imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside," she told The Sun according to a report by Independent.

In another new development, Lawrence has reportedly split from her boyfriend Cold Play singer Chris Martin, according to Hollywoodlife. The reports came as a shock, as the two have been dating only for for four months and were said to be madly in love with each other. It was also reported that Martin was supportive of Lawrence when she became a victim of nude photo leak scandal.

Representatives of the couple are yet to confirm on the reports of their split.
