However, the pictures have now surfaced on various websites after an internet account belonging to Aguilera's stylist was hacked into, according to the star's spokesperson.

And the singer has now called in her lawyers to take action against the thieves who spread the private pictures all over the web.

A representative for Aguilera tells UsMagazine.com, "The photos of Christina Aguilera being leaked to the press were illegally obtained by a hacker who tapped into Christina's personal stylist's account. The photos were taken in the privacy of Ms. Aguilera's home and were used only in a personal exchange between the star and her stylist.

"We find the actions of the hackers and the press who purchased and/or obtained these photos to be irresponsible and actionable. We are attempting to determine the identity of the hackers and will pursue them aggressively. Their conduct is reprehensible."
