Singer Christina Aguilera says snaps were taken for her stylist

Scantily-clad photos of Christina Aguilera have been leaked online. 

A computer hacker stole the snaps from the singer’s stylist and posted them on the internet this week.

‘The photos of Christina Aguilera leaked to the press were illegally obtained by a hacker who tapped into Christina‘s personal stylist’s account,’ her spokesman tells the Daily Mail.

‘The photos were taken in the privacy of Ms Aguilera‘s home and were used only in a personal exchange between the star and her stylist.

‘We find the actions of the hackers and the press who purchased and/or obtained these photos to be irresponsible and actionable.

‘We are attempting to determine the identity of the hackers and will pursue them aggressively. Their conduct is reprehensible.’

In the pictures, Christina, 29, was seen in revealing poses.

She is expected to duet with one of The X Factor contestants during Saturday’s final.
