In the wake of the leak of her naked photos, a lawyer for the "Twilight" hottie confirms the actress is threatening to sue anyone who leak the shot.
Several naked pictures of big screen beauty Ashley Greene have hit the web on Monday, August 10. Most of the x-rated shots show the 22-year-old star exposing her nude breasts and private part to the camera in some raunchy poses. No word on when and where the photos were taken. Egotastic! has some of the much talked naked photographs.
And while the shots are still making their way all over the Internet, lawyer for Ashley has exclusively confirmed to People that the Alice Cullen depicter in "Twilight" has threatened to take legal action against those who leak the pictures. "The photos in question, which appear to be of our client, are illegal and are being unlawfully displayed," the attorney tells People, adding "Our client intends to take legal action."
In another statement issued to Perez Hilton, Ashley's lawyer says, "Ms. Greene is the owner of the copyrights in these photos, and as copyright owner, Ms. Greene owns the exclusive rights, among others, to reproduce, distribute, and to display the photos."
Ashley Greene was spotted on Sunday, August 9 attending the 11th Annual Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif. During the occasion she brought home the Choice Fresh Face Female award.
Ashley herself has not yet addressed the leak of her nude pictures.
