Some "personal" shots of an almost naked Christina Aguilera were leaked on the Internet on Wednesday. The singer's rep immediately came forward insisting that the shots were mean for personal use only and were never meant to be seen by the public.

The rep told Us magazine "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 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."

It seems that the photos of the 29-year-old singer were taken before her split from her husband Jordan Bratman. The shots show Aguilera in a series of skimpy outfits.

The rep continued  "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."
