Ashley Greene Photo Controversy

MTV received a quote from Ashley Greene’s representatives regarding a story that broke late Monday afternoon. We are running the story now that the issue is officially being addressed by Ashley Greene’s representatives, and is no longer purely conjecture.

According to MTV:

“It looks like “Twilight” star Ashley Greene is the latest starlet caught up in a nude-photo scandal. After Perez Hilton posted naked pictures that appeared to be of Greene, her rep stepped in and released a statement.

“The photos in question, which appear to be of our client, are illegal and are being unlawfully displayed,” her rep told MTV News in a statement Monday (August 10). “Our client intends to take legal action.”

Although the statement doesn’t confirm whether the photos are of Greene, they have since been taken off Perez Hilton’s Web site and replaced with the following statement: “The nude images have been removed from at the request of Greene’s attorneys.”

At the time the story broke, Ashley Greene was already in transit to the Eclipse set in Vancouver.  You can see the entire story on MTV.

The staff of the Lexicon wishes Ashley Greene well during what is obviously an emotional and trying time. We would ask that any comments do not link to the photos whose remnants are still online in that Ashley Greene’s reps have made quite clear that they will be taking legal action towards those who do post them.
