In drama worthy of a Gossip Girl plotline, Blake Lively has found herself the subject of a nude photo scandal.
Pictures surfaced online this week purportedly showing the actress posing naked in a series of self-portraits.
Some observers noted that the photographs show an iPhone similar to the one the actress has been seen carrying around on the set of her hit TV show.
However, the 23-year-old has branded the grainy photos '100 per cent fake'.
A spokesperson for the star told America's People magazine: 'Blake has never taken nude photos of herself.
'Blake will pursue legal action against the publication which initially published these photographs and any other outlets that republish them in any manner.'
