New raunchy pictures of Miley Cyrus posing in a shower have been leaked onto the internet, but there are claims that they could have been faked.
The photos show the 15-year-old star of hit US TV show Hannah Montana allegedly in the shower, wearing a long white see-through T-shirt.
In another image, Miley poses provocatively with her T-shirt tied tightly under her breasts, exposing her stomach as she pouts at the camera.
The new photographs have been posted on an internet forum, with the user claiming he was sent them by Nick Jonas, of US band The Jonas Brothers, who briefly dated Miley last year.
The internet user is also claiming he has more scandalous pictures of the multi-talented star, which he is now attempting to sell.
Some websites believed the photos were faked.
Miley, the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, is no stranger to controversy.
Earlier this year, a revealing picture of her taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz for the cover of Vanity Fair magazine showed the young star posing with just a blanket.
Following the controversial image, Miley released a statement saying: "I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be 'artistic' and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed.
"I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologise to my fans who I care so deeply about."
Less than a month later, new pictures of the actress were leaked onto the internet, showing her posing in a variety of risque photographs wearing lacy red underwear, after reportedly being taken from her MySpace account.
