According to the Bionic singer's mouthpiece, the pictures—which depicted Aguilera in little more than pasties and a few thin strips of fabric—were "illegally obtained by a hacker." The rep adds that the images—which show Aguilera wearing nothing but pasties and a few thin strands of fabric—were "taken in the privacy of Ms. Aguilera's home and were used only in a personal exchange between the star and her stylist."
The rep went on to note,
"We find the actions of the hackers and the press who purchased and/or obtained these photos to be irresponsible and actionable."Aguilera's team is currently "attempting to determine the identity of the hackers and will pursue them aggressively."
“It seems the nearly naked photos claiming to be of Christina Aguilera that made their way onto the Web today are, in fact, of the Burlesque star. But Christina’s rep says they were "illegally obtained."”
