The allegedly hacked computer was left in Cohen’s home by an ex-boyfriend who formerly lived with her. Cohen learned in March 2022 of the relationship between the victim and Cohen’s ex-boyfriend. The ex-boyfriend’s Apple iCloud account included nude photos of the victim. Cohen, 32, is accused of accessing the account by guessing “commonly used passwords,” on March 21, 2022.

Per Local 10, “an arrest report from the Miami Police Department states that the victim reported what happened to detectives in November 2023.”

Cohen is accused of non-consensually publishing the victim’s explicit photos in a chat that included Cohen, the victim, and others. A message within that chat is reported to have confirmed that the publishing of the explicit photos was done with malicious intent to cause emotional harm to the victim.
