Snooki has just gone the way of Scarlett Johansson — but not when it comes to being a great actress. Instead, some brand-new photos of the “Jersey Shore” star in a state of undress have hit the internet, and a rep has already come forward and said that the photos are in fact real.
You can see censored versions of the photos over at the Daily Mail, and they at least appear to be a year or two old. It’s unclear if these photos were snapped before or after Snooki started to date her now-fiance Jionni LaValle, or why she decided to store them on her phone in the first place. (After all, this has been a move that has gotten plenty of other celebrities in trouble.)
Here is what her rep said about the photos to E! News:
“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 is currently busy filming shooting season 6 of her hit MTV show, and she is also expecting her first child with LaValle. How will she handle this scandal? If she follows Johansson’s lead, she will need to send out a legal team rather hastily to remove all of the photos as fast as humanly possible.
While she may hate the leak, this scandal is getting Snooki’s name in the limelight at just the right time. Her spin-off series “Snooki & JWoww” is set to premiere on MTV June 21, just one week after “The Pauly D Project” comes to a close.
