Following the recently celebrity photo leak, which included the Hunger Games actress, a man claiming to be Lawrence's ex-boyfriend has come forward, claiming he is in the business of hacking.

"She’s the type of person who would have done a nude scene but would’ve wanted to make the decision on her own,” Brad Jackson, 23, revealed during an interview with The Sun, via an October 27 report by The Mirror. "The fact a hacker did it [leaked the pictures] was pretty s**tty - but that's the kind of field I'm in."

Jackson, who claimed to have dated Lawrence when they were 12-years-old and growing up in Louisville, Ky., graduated with a degree in computer network systems, and said he saw a photo of Lawrence's hacker's screen. He also alleged the hacker had a folder of stolen video clips on his computer.

Jackson told The Sun he was not the type of hacker, which stole the private photos of many celebrities, but admitted he has been tempted by the industry.

“I’m so tempted to go into the illegal part and make more money,” he said.

Jackson isn't the first ex-boyfriend of Lawrence to step forward in regard to her recent photo hacking. Earlier this month, actor Nicholas Hoult, who dated Lawrence from 2010 to 2014, spoke with the L.A. Times, telling the publication, "It's shocking that things like that happen in the world. It's a shame."
