Paige And Alberto Del Rio Send Message To Sex Tape Hackers Ahead Of Wedding
Recently British wrestling star Paige, real name Saraya-Jade Bevis, was involved in a leak which saw private images and videos of hers make their way onto the internet.
The leak is reportedly part of something called 'The Fappening 2.0', which involves a number of celebrities such as Emma Watson, Holly Willoughby and Amanda Seyfried being hacked.
The former WWE Divas champion reacted to the scandal on Twitter, saying: "Personal and private photos of mine were stolen and unfortunately they were shared publicly without my consent," before following it up with a link to Rag'n'Bone Man's song 'Human', making a point about being a person and empathy.

Paige and her fiance, former WWE world heavyweight champion Alberto Del Rio are defiant against the hackers, saying that nothing they can do can tear them apart.
Paige previously said: "Just looking to the future and being happy. I mean come on, I am getting married, how can I not be happy?"
Now Del Rio, now going by the name Alberto El Patron, has taken to Instagram to send a message to the online trolls, claiming the couple are 'better and stronger than all of you pieces of shit', and confirming their wedding is still going ahead tomorrow.

Paige also took to social media to once again address the shit storm, posting a heartfelt message about her feelings towards the illicit images.
"I made a big mistake. Huge. I put trust in the hands of someone that took advantage of a young girl years ago," she wrote. "It was my mistake and I'll always take responsibility.
"The one thing that was the hardest was thinking 'my husband is gonna leave me', 'my family will disown me', but I'm blessed beyond words to have a family and a husband that stuck by me because they know who I am."
She continued: "As my husband says 'you may feel like the devil is throwing you into a storm, but just remember, you are the storm'. And he's right.

"But we are human. Unfortunately people don't see it that way when they are behind a keyboard. They don't think that we have feelings or that we don't suffer."
In the aftermath of the situation, Paige's mum, Saraya Knight, who is also in the wrestling business, took to Twitter to confirm the news and to let people know that she and her husband are very supportive of their daughter at this time.
She also said that a lawyer had been emailed with regards to the situation.
She wrote: "People get hacked, unfortunately my daughter had pictures and video shared from years ago, my husband and I support her 100% no fault of her own."
In February it was announced that Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Stephen Merchant were working on a film about the life of Paige.
The film will be called Fighting With My Family, and was inspired by Channel 4's 2012 documentary of the same name on the wrestler.
Stephen Merchant, partly responsible for the brilliance of The Office with Ricky Gervais, as well as the brains behind Lip Sync Battle and appearing in the recent Wolverine film Logan, will direct and write the film. Dwayne Johnson will be the executive producer.
I know what you're thinking: when will @therock and I finally make a movie about a family of wrestlers from Norwich, England. Good news -- we are! Seriously. This is us hatching the plan backstage at WrestleMania 32. And yes, The Rock's bicep is as big as my head.

The last time the pair worked together was on The Tooth Fairy, so let's hope it's better than that.
Paige's upbringing is pretty interesting, being born into a wrestling family in Norwich, with parents Ian Bevis and Julia Hamer-Bevis both competing in the squared circle.
While growing up Paige had no intentions of entering the business herself as the injuries inflicted on her mum and dad had put her off. She instead had ambitions to become a zoologist.
Around the age of ten her father opened a wrestling school, which she occasionally took part in, which lead to her official debut at the age of 13.
