Ariana Grande has spoken out to assure fans she is not a victim of the nude picture leak which has rocked Hollywood, insisting she is not the girl in the pictures.
The singer was rumored to be among the stars whose saucy snaps were leaked the Internet on Sunday, and a series of photographs appeared to show her posing without her clothes.
A representative for the Problem hitmaker denied the snaps were real, and now the singer has reached out to set the record straight herself.
In a series of posts on Twitter, she writes,, “To every1 (everyone) going on about my ‘nudes’… (They are not) real! My lil a** is a lot cuter than that… But for real tho (though) whoever thought those were actually me…. love u (sic) but I’m praying for u (sic)..”
Although Ariana, as well as fellow former Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice, have denied the pictures since they began surfacing over the Labor Day weekend, not everyone is completely sold on their word. Online investigators have been going out of their way to prove that some of the shots of the stars actually are real.
Agents at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are investigating the leak, which has affected stars including Kirsten Dunst, Jennifer Lawrence and former Downton Abbey actress Jessica Brown Findlay.
