Tammy Hembrow's Instagram account is HACKED as criminals vow to release a 'sex tape'

Tammy Hembrow, one of Australia's most popular Instagram users, had her verified account hacked overnight.

The hacking was part of an unauthorised scam and Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting any sex tape actually exists.

The cyber attack took place shortly after 1am on Wednesday night.

At the time, Tammy was attending an event hosted by NEON Model Management and the PrettyLittleThing fashion label at Watsons Bay Hotel in Sydney.
