'X Factor' Star Sam Callahan Apologizes For Nude Leak

Sam Callahan competed in the Boys category for judge Louis Walsh on The X Factor UK in 2013. However, since then, he's had his controversial moments here and there. Case in point, Sam is apologizing publicly for the leak of some nude images.

Some graphic images surfaced online, but the shocking part is that they were taken while Sam was still a teenager. Apparently, the singer attributes the entire incident to having been catfished by someone online. He admits it was pretty foolish of him to send pictures to someone he'd never met in person, but chalks it all up to being a teenager. In a statement to The Sun, Sam stated:

"I was young and foolish back then, unfortunately I wrongly trusted the person I was speaking to at the time and was completely betrayed and catfished. It’s not something that would happen now. I’m way too focused and driven to put myself in that risky situation, but I guess we live and learn.”

Well, at least Sam appears to have matured. With that said, I'd be shocked if he didn't take legal action against whoever leaked the photos.
