Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn nude photos reportedly on a "celebrity-smut" website went offline after Woods' attorney threatened legal action, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

Andrew Brettler, an attorney at Lavely & Singer, told the Times he was representing other victims as well in the privacy breach that sparked outrage from Woods, Vonn and other celebrities earlier in the week.

Woods, the former No. 1 golfer in the world, and Vonn, a gold medal-winning skier, dated for nearly three years before breaking up in 2015. They reportedly shared pics that ended up on a hacked phone.

"(A)s of yesterday evening, in response to our legal demands, the website in question (and many others) removed the unlawfully published photographs and videos," Brettler told the Times Wednesday. He called hacking and publishing of the photos "an outrageous violation of our clients' privacy rights and federal copyright law."

Britain's The Sun newspaper said actress Kristen Stewart and pop singer Miley Cyrus had their pictures successfully removed from the website called Celeb Jihad, as well.

The New York Daily News said the hack that exposed the photos of Woods and Vonn may have part of a larger effort that nabbed the photos of Stewart, Cyrus, and former "American Idol" star Katharine McPhee.

People magazine said McPhee filed a lawsuit Los Angeles County Tuesday over the nude photos.

"I was hacked sometime in the last few years, and along with other celebrities a few days ago, my private photos were blasted all over some sick and despicable websites," McPhee told People.

"The photos that are mine I am not ashamed of. I love my body and they were taken for a man I was deeply in love with, or for no one but myself. But what is also truly disgusting is that these sites include photos that do not belong to me, and are not of my body, and I've learned this happens continually."

The Times noted that Christopher Chaney, the source of hundreds of celebrity nudes posted online in 2011, received a 10-year prison sentence for wiretapping and computer hacking in 2012.

Last year, Ryan Collins was slapped with an 18-month in prison sentence in connection with the FBI investigation of "Celebgate," the nude-photo scandal that included Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, the Times noted.
