Snooki Leaked Photos Weren't From Emilio Masella, He Claims

After nude cell phone photos of Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi were leaked on Friday, the "Jersey Shore" star's ex-boyfriend Emilio Masella is saying he isn't the one who pressed send.

"I honestly don’t care," Masella, who briefly called Snooki his girlfriend in 2010, told TMZ. "I'm trying to get rid of trash in my life ... I'm done with her and moving on with my own career."

Snooki's former flame explained that in the nude self-portraits, Snooki flaunts her slimmed down frame -- a body that she worked hard to attain after they broke up. The nude shots show a trim Snooki (NSFW), sporting an open white robe in what appears to be a hotel room.

"Clearly these are old and personal photos that were not meant for the public," Snooki's rep told E! Online. "It's a shame someone decided to leak them for obvious personal gain."

But who might that be?

Before Snooki found her current fiance, Jionni LaValle, she briefly dated Jeff Miranda during her third season of filming the booze-centric reality show. Miranda proposed to Snooki after two short weeks of dating, before she swiftly rejected the offer to be his Mrs.

Regardless of who leaked the photos, this isn't Snooki's first time playing victim to a nude photo scandal. In 2010, naked photos of the 4'9" party girl were posted anonymously to the website, nakedsnooki.com.
