Pop star Carly Rae Jepsen has reportedly been hacked and nude photographs stolen from her computer.

According to paparazzi entertainment tabloid TMZ, the "Call Me Maybe" star contacted the Vancouver Police Department in March to report the theft.

The VPD is trying to help Jepsen find a man accused of hacking into her computer, who later attempted to sell them to the media.

VPD spokesperson Const. Lindsey Houghton said the investigation is moving to a phase where charges may soon be laid. Police say a male suspect from outside Vancouver has been identified.

Although no pictures of her have surfaced on the Internet, the 26-year-old took to Twitter to deny reports of a pixellated video claiming to be a sex tape involving Jepsen:

Jepsen, originally from Mission, is a former Canadian Idol contestant and has blown up in popularity since signing with the record label of Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun.
