Selena Gomez's email account hacking: New Jersey woman charged

A New Jersey college student could spend almost a decade behind bars for allegedly hacking Selena Gomez's email.

She is expected to be arraigned by August 27. She's also charged with nabbing information from one of Selena's associates.

Susan Atrach has been charged with five counts of identity theft, five counts of fraud, and one count of using computer data without permission.

A man who identified himself as Atrach's father declined to comment.

The Good For You singer's email was targeted between June 2015 through February 2016, according to prosecutors with the Los Angeles County's District Attorney's office, TMZ reported.

Selena revealed her collaboration with the brand past year with a similar Instagram post, alongside an image of the "Kill Em With Kindness" singer sporting a red velvet bodysuit, with grey shorts, and a black jumper, she wrote: "Guys- I'm so excited to share my first campaign for the new PUMA Phenom". If convicted of all charges, Atrach could be sentenced to nine years and eight months in state prison.

While the incident was not detailed by the persecutors, Page Six suspects that the hacking might have something to do with a story from previous year. The 25-year-old pop star teamed up with the brand as an ambassador in 2017 and the "Bad Liar" hitmaker has posted a photo on Instagram revealing a first look at her campaign.

It was not immediately clear whether Atrach, of Ridgefield Park, New Jersey, was in custody on Friday afternoon or if she had retained a criminal defense attorney.
