Unfortunately, it’s becoming a bit of a trend in Hollywood for female entertainers to release nude photos of themselves in order to thwart those who seek to extort them. Two months ago, former Disney darling, Bella Thorne also posted topless photos of herself because creeps were threatening to release her pictures to the public lest she complied with their demands. Sadly, a similar situation seemed to occur in Cummings’ case as well.

Just a few hours ago, Cummings took to her Twitter to share the nude photo of herself along with a series of tweets.
