The Internet was ablaze with a scandalous rumor Thursday. Word spread that Kanye West had tweeted a naked photo of girlfriend Kim Kardashian.
The photo featured a naked Kim Kardashian lookalike munching on fruit from room service in a fancy hotel. The long dark hair, tanned skin and ample assets had everyone thinking it had to be the E! reality starlet. The photo was allegedly shared on West's Twitter feed before being taken down.
But what is the naked truth?
Although the photo was credited to West, TMZ revealed that it had never been posted on the rapper's Twitter account. The entertainment website discovered that the whole thing was just a prank, part of something dubbed #WanksterWednesday.
And, what's more is, the photo was not even of Kardashian!
ABC News reported that the naked woman in the photo is porn star Amia Miley. She originally tweeted the photo of herself last year. She has a collection of other scandalous photos, similar to the one reportedly shared by West, on her Twitter account.
Apparently a naked photo of me eating is going viral ... as Kim Kardashian ... I'm confused, tweeted Miley. Im not going 2 argue about whether that pic is me or not ... want proof? look at the back dimple piercings. kim k doesn't have those.
When asked about the buff shot, Miley told TMZ, That's how I like to eat breakfast.
When asked about the striking similarity between her and Kardashian, Miley rebuffed the comparison. She's a very beautiful girl, but I think it's a silly comparison. Just because we both have brown hair and booties doesn't mean we look alike.
Miley is not the only one who spoke out to clear the air about the naked pic. Kanye West did not let the issue blow over, either.
A representative for West denied the musician tweeted, or had anything to do with, the naked photo.
In regards to this 'story' that Kanye posted and then took down intimate pictures on his Twitter account: TOTALLY FALSE. Laughably so. This phantom tweet never occurred on his account, his representative told Us Weekly. This is obviously the desperate, sad act of someone seeking to gain media exposure by exploiting Kanye's notoriety. Kanye doesn't even know this person, has never seen this picture, and hasn't been on his Twitter account for a day.
Kardashian has yet to respond to the hoopla. This is not the first time she has been involved in such a scandal.
In April, naked photos purportedly of the curvaceous brunette were posted on the gossip blog MediaTakeOut. The photo showed a woman, who looked like Kardashian, standing naked in her kitchen cooking an egg.
But Kardashian's publicist's shot down that rumor as well. It's not her. You can totally tell. It looks nothing like her, a spokesman told the Daily Mail at the time.
