Paige Spiranac opens up on naked photo leak that left her in tears before she ‘got t**s out on her own terms’

FORMER golf professional Paige Spiranac has spoken out on the horrendous experience of having a nude photo leaked – and how she managed to take back control of her body by getting her “t*ts out” on her own terms.

The 29-year-old social media personality sent the picture to a guy she was dating, but things turned nasty after they broke up.

Her ex decided to share the picture among his friends, and before long the image had circulated beyond control, with Spiranac having to face a barrage of messages from strangers that had seen the image.

When the American decided to confront people as to how they had got their hands on the picture, they refused to tell her.

Speaking previously on her podcast, Playing-A-Round, she said: “It was horrible, just getting these random messages from people you don’t know and they’ve seen you in such a vulnerable way. It was disgusting.

“When I finally confronted the guy and said, ‘I can’t believe you did this to me’, he said – and I’ll never forget this – ‘You are the sl*t who sent it to me, you deserve this.”

As time went by, things began to spiral more and more out of control.

“I would wake up every single day, I would check my phone and be like, ‘Am I going to be on TMZ today?” she added, “Am I going to be here, am I going to be there?’”

“That was the worst part. I was constantly stressed out that someone was going to see it and someone was going to get it and that it was going to get out.

“Also, that was one picture. I don’t know what else he had or what he was going to release. If he did it once, he could do it again and again and again.”

As can be the horrible nature of social media, Spiranac received disgusting abuse, including death threats – with trolls telling her that the torment was her own fault.

And things reached breaking point when, just minutes before a press conference in Dubai, someone threatened to release the picture online unless she paid him… or sent him more.

Spiranac subsequently broke down in tears in front of the media, and without revealing the specifics, talked about how hurtful internet users “making judgements” about her was.

At an event in Lake Tahoe, a fan that she believed wanted simply an autograph, pulled out an enlarged copy of the nude photograph – in view of lots of other attendees – including children.

The incident again brought Spiranac to tears, as she felt the sheer weight of seemingly never being able to “escape” the image.

She continued: “These little things kept happening where I was like, ‘OK, I think I’m over it’. Maybe a month will pass then it gets brought up again.

“And it gets brought up again, and brought up again and it keeps also reminding me of this guy and what he did to me and all of this trauma.

“Every life event was also tied into that, which was super traumatic for me.”

Spiranac also felt the ludicrous double standards of some men, as she was continuously “sl*t shamed” for the picture – while simultaneously being sent pictures of men’s genitalia from strangers.

She had always dreamed of appearing in the swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated, and when the opportunity arose, it helped her lay her demons to rest once and for all.

Her perspective then shifted a little: “Winning in my mind was taking control of my body,” she mused, and she did just that.

Among the glossy photoshoot with the famous magazine, one picture in particular stood out for her.

She said: “I was nude, I was completely naked. That was the best moment for me.

“I felt so empowered and I was like, ‘OK, if I’m going to do this, I’m doing it on my terms’ and I took it back, I took my body back.

“That was the moment I won, right there, when I did Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and I had my t**s out.”

Spiranac now has over three million Instagram followers, and has looked to use her platform for good.

Maxim recently named her the ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ for 2022 – a title that Spiranac was “shocked” to receive.

In 2017 she became an ambassador for Cybersmile, a charity that aims to provide support and educational programmes in order to help combat cyber bullying and its effects.

She has now entered the next stage of her career with the launch of her podcast, as the self-styled “OG Insta golf girl” aims to continue to contribute to good causes.

How do I improve my golf score?

These simple tips will help you improve your game of golf quickly and easily.

  1. Practice more, play less. To improve at something, you need to practice more. Playing too much means you’re practicing bad habits.
  2. When you feel good, play. There are days when you just don’t feel like playing. Don’t force yourself into doing things you don’t enjoy. Instead, find new ways to make playing golf enjoyable.
  3. Take breaks. Golfers frequently take breaks during the round to stretch and walk around, or eat lunch. Breaks allow your body to relax, and help you stay focused during the round.
  4. Drink water! It is easy for people to lose track of the number of drinks they have had while out on the courses. You should drink enough water to avoid becoming dehydrated. It will keep you feeling hydrated before, during, & after your game.
  5. Be healthy. Eat healthy foods such fruits, vegetables, lean meat, whole grains and low-fat dairy products to give you energy, so you can perform well at the course.
  6. Stay hydrated. Water is your best friend. At least eight glasses of water should be consumed each day. This includes water from beverages (such as coffee), as well as plain water.
  7. You should warm up properly. Begin your round by walking or running for five to ten minutes. Then, you should be able to move freely and feel limber.
  8. Keep your head down. Keep your head down when you tee off. Avoid looking at the ball or watching where it lands. Instead, your eyes should be on the hole.
  9. You should always wear proper form when you’re dancing. Proper form can mean different things to different people. You want to avoid hitting the target. Instead, aim to strike the ball at the center of your target.
  10. Concentrate on the process. Although there are many factors that influence a successful golf swing you should be able to focus on the process.
