When photos leaked online depicting what appears to be [artist id="2335742"]Cassie[/artist] topless, the singer quickly responded on Twitter, saying that they are in fact of her, and that people shouldn't make such a big deal out of it.
"It seems that someone has hacked into my computer," she Tweeted about the photos. "That's real foul and evil. Now stop acting like you haven't seen a t---y before."
The singer later took to her blog
to further comment on the photo leak — posting at 4:57 a.m. — reiterating the fact that she thought whoever released the private photos is "evil."
"The recent personal pictures that have been leaked on the internet of me were hacked and stolen out of my computer," she wrote. "These photos were obviously never intended for the world to see and it's sad that people would really take time to steal and post them, it's just evil. At the end of the day breasts are breasts, mine weren't the first you've seen and they won't be the last ... people need to grow up, let's move on. Thank you."
At press time, a rep for Cassie had not responded to MTV News' multiple requests for comment.
Cassie is certainly not the first pop star in recent years who has had private, nude photos of her leaked to the Internet. "High School Musical" star Vanessa Hudgens also had a scandal back in 2007 when a nude photo was leaked.
Much like Cassie, Hudgens took responsibility for the photos,
saying they were meant to be private and that "kids do stupid things sometimes." "It was something that was meant to be private," she said. "And even though it isn't anymore, I'd still like to keep it as private as I can."
