Gossip Girl star Blake Lively says a series of circulating nude pictures are not her, and she's threatening to sue outlets publishing the photos. The photos were first released (then yanked) on Perez Hilton's gossip website. They show a blonde strongly resembling Lively taking cellphone shots of herself nude in a mirror. "The photos are 100% fake. Blake has never taken nude photos of herself," said her publicist. "Blake will pursue legal action against the publication which published these photographs and any other outlets that republish them."

But TMZ reports that the hacker who claims to have the pics just released 17 more, along with this misspelled statement: "Oh, yes, Blake's rep. These are totally fake. We really, really believe you. Want moar? BTW, thanks for all the fats." TMZ is featuring one of the photos, in which "Lively" is wearing clothes; decide for yourself. Photos apparently not in dispute are recent ones showing Lively, 23, canoodling with Leonardo DiCaprio, 36; the two were snapped holding hands in Monte Carlo last week, reports the New York Daily News.
