Teen pop star Selena Gomez has branded the topless photo of her circulating the Internet as a ‘fake’ and is planning to take legal action against its creator.
Sources close to the 18-year-old Disney star have said she and her camp are angry that someone is trying to ruin her reputation by using Photoshop to create a topless pic of her. The source added that lawyers for the singer/actress plan to take immediate action, sending out a cease-and-desist letter to be followed by a lawsuit, reported TMZ.
“The alleged photo of Selena Gomez is absolutely not her. Selena’s family is pursuing all available remedies to deal with the offender,” said a source.
In the photo, alleged to be of Gomez with shorter hair, she’s seen looking away from the camera standing in a bathroom with no shirt on, her body on full display.
Gomez is also the target of relationship gossip these days and is rumored to be dating Justin Bieber. Though neither has confirmed they are an item, the pair were spotted getting cozy on vacation over the holidays.
