Grounds for a lawsuit?

Iggy Azalea Says She's "Disturbed" By Men's Reactions To Topless Photos Leaking On Social Media (Buzzfeed, safe for work)

She posed for a photo shoot for GQ magazine in 2016. Now some topless "outtake" photos from that photoshoot that she didn't consent to having published have "leaked" onto the internet. Are the magazine and/or the photographer liable?

I'd think it would depend on the model release and the contract she signed. If they stated that she retained control of the images she has a case. If it was a standard model release, which gives the photographer complete ownership of the images, then not.

The photographer says the images were stolen, so he may have cause against the thief.

Agreed, unless she can show that he did not take reasonable precautions to protect the photos and the contract required such. That's why contracts are so damn long.
