MADRID (AP) -- A Spanish photo agency says coveted shots of Shakira holding hands with Barcelona football player Gerard Pique that are circulating on the Internet had been stolen by a computer hacker.
The agency Gtres-Online and other agencies had been planning to sell these photos to Spanish and other publications as exclusives.
Gtres-Online sales director Manuel Montero told the AP Tuesday the photos taken by paparazzi were stolen by a hacker, probably from a temporary Internet file that agencies like his use.
Montero said the shots of the couple outside a Barcelona restaurant were then downloaded onto a Shakira fan website called Shakira Gallery.
