Miami, FL — Powerlifting and boxing star Stefi Cohen, widely known in the fitness community, was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly hacking into her ex-boyfriend’s computer and sharing nude photos of another woman. The accusations have rocked her followers and the fitness world, as Cohen faces multiple charges, including sexual cyber-harassment and resisting arrest.

The Incident

According to the arrest report, the 32-year-old Cohen, whose full name is Stefanie Cohen Magarici, allegedly accessed her ex-boyfriend’s laptop, which he had left at her home. She reportedly guessed the password to his Apple iCloud account, where she discovered and saved explicit photos of his new girlfriend. Cohen then distributed these photos through group chats, reportedly with the intention of exposing and humiliating the woman.

Legal Charges

The Miami-Dade Police Department charged Cohen with several offenses, including:

  • Sexual cyber-harassment (Felony)
  • Offenses against computer users (Misdemeanor)

The victim and Cohen’s ex-boyfriend reported the incident to the police in November 2023, leading to the investigation and subsequent arrest.

Arrest and Aftermath

Cohen was taken to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center and was released on a $3,300 bond the following morning. She has since taken to social media, defending herself and describing the accusations as false and motivated by a “vengeful ex-boyfriend.”
