kris002Christina Aguilera has insisted photos of her in her underwear were leaked online by a hacker.

The pictures of the Burlesque star in her underwear were stolen from her stylist’s computer by a hacker, according to her rep.

“The photos of Christina Aguilera being leaked to the press were illegally obtained by a hacker who tapped into Christina’s personal stylist’s account,” the rep told US Weekly in a statement.

“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.”

The statement added: “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.”
