Scott took to Twitter again on Thursday to address the leak and issues of privacy, and asserted she "will not be bowed."

"I did nothing wrong & nothing that was YOUR snake concern," she wrote. "My photo was hacked; my PRIVACY INVADED."

"You are not part of my village therefore making your attempt to harm me null," she continued. "I'm not even delayed. Shame for spreading. Shame 4 adding."

Scott went on to express her "love" and "appreciat[ion]" for her body, and thanked her "Love Village" for their "empathy," for "KNOWING better" and for "speaking up." The singer urged those perpetuating the leak to move toward the "light" and away from "stilted satisfaction."
