“Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is the latest celebrity to have her naked photos leaked online.
Nude photos taken with a cell phone of the 24-year-old surfaced online on June 8, and were posted by Egotastic and The Daily Mail.
The photos of the star, who is currently expecting her first child with fiance Jionni LaValle, appear to have been taken before she became pregnant. In the pictures, Snooki is seen taking photos of herself wearing a white robe, left open to reveal her body. The photos appear to have been taken in a hotel room, as what looks like a room service tray is visible on the bed in the background.
Snooki’s rep confirmed to E! News that the photos are in fact of the reality star, telling the website, “Clearly these are old and personal photos that were not meant for the public. It’s a shame someone decided to leak them for obvious personal gain.”
Snooki hasn’t yet commented on the leaked photos, but it’s not the first time she’s had private pictures fall into the wrong hands. In April 2010, the Internet got their first look at Snooki in the buff when a photo was anonymously posted at the website nakedSnooki.com.
The photo showed the reality star naked and posed on all fours, with a thought bubble floating over her head, reading: “There are no nude photos nor will there ever be. The tabloids just love snook gossip ;]”
