It looks like the Ashley Greene scandal, where nude pictures of the Twilight actress showed up on the internet, is heating up.
In response to the Ashley Greene nude photos scandal, reps for the actress told MTV:
“The photos in question, which appear to be of our client, are illegal and are being unlawfully displayed. Our client intends to take legal action.”Greene’s reps didn’t specify exactly the nude photos of her are illegal, or whether she was a minor when they were taken. From our perspective, it looks like another publicity stunt to bolster the actresses visibility in the online press.
Anyway, we’ve seen it happen here at the Inquisitr enough to know exactly what’s happening. Here’s how it works: 1. Ashley Greene nude photos leaked online and posted or shared by bloggers and forums. Instant publicity. 2. Lawyers representing Greene threaten to sue site owners and bloggers, who in turn bitch and complain, giving the actress even more publicity. Of course, this is all done right around the time the celeb is either fading in popularity or to coincide with a launch or event to amplify publicity.
