This week, a nude photo of singer Teyana Taylor surfaced when a tweet from her own Twitter profile was sent out to the masses.
While she initially stated that her phone had been lost and/or stolen and the person who found it sent out the pic, some speculated whether the 21-year-old leaked the photo on purpose to garner publicity.
After regaining control of her account (@TeyanaTaylor), Teyana wrote a long response, expressing her anger over the leaked photos while shooting down reports that she was behind it.
Below is her response in its entirety:
Look I'm human, & just like every girl in this world, I admire my body so i take pics just like EVERY other human being. However my phone that was stolen Witch my phone was also connected to my twitter. So i guess the hacker felt the need to have a field day and leaked personal photos, and also tweet mean & hurtful things about me. I ain't gone front It really hurt my feelings that someone would be so evil and mean. I would never leak photos like that of my self. I have so many blessings and opportunities ahead of me & I have way more class & respect for my self as a young woman. So there's no need to seek attention. But I sincerely apologize to all my supporters and followers who had to witness the devil at work, and at what he does best. Karma is a $&@# but I'll let God handle that. that's it that's all.
Aside from the nude photo scandal, Teyana is set to drop a new single, titled "DUI" featuring Fabolous and Jadakiss, next week. Then, her EP The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor will follow on February 29.
