Robin Twist denies a risqué photo is of the One Direction star

Harry Styles‘ stepfather Robin Twist has rubbished reports that the One Direction singer posed for a raunchy selfie in his boxers.

A saucy photo appeared online this week of a topless man – whose head can’t be seen – provocatively tugging his black underwear down with his thumb.

On his chest, a butterfly tattoo similar to 20-year-old Harry‘s is visible but Robin insists the inking is larger than his stepson’s and that the 1D star’s extra two nipples are missing.

‘Hi Take a closer look, there are some things missing (any fan will know what) and the tattoo is too big, this is obviously not H,’ Tweeted Robin.

The picture’s emergence comes days after a shock video leaked of Harry‘s bandmates Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik appearing to smoke a rolled-up joint in Peru.

Robin – who married Harry‘s mum Anne Twist last year – doesn’t think it’s right that the group have been getting so much bad press recently.

He thinks it’s more important to highlight the fact that Niall Horan impressively raised £300,000 by hosting a charity football match with his celebrity pals on Monday.

‘How about @NiallOfficial raised £300,000 for charity this week, I think that would be better than this BS. X,’ Tweeted Robin.
