I decided not to put the controversial nude photos of one miss “Baby V” (ugh, gag me) on my blog because I didn’t want any easily influenced young girls to get the wrong idea. However, I just heard this tidbit that is too juicy to pass up:
Following the appearance on the Web of a nude photo of Vanessa Hudgens, a source close to the situation tells PEOPLE that the High School Musical actress once sent risqué photos of herself to Nickelodeon star Drake Bell.
Hudgens had emailed photos to the Drake and Josh actor a couple of years ago, before she was famous, the source says. Bell’s rep, Jill Fritzo, tells PEOPLE of the images that began hitting blogs on Thursday: “Drake says he never received those photos.”
Hudgens, 18, appeared in a 2006 episode of Bell’s Nickelodeon show as his character’s girlfriend. In real life, Hudgens is dating her High School Musical costar Zac Efron, and the two are in Australia at the moment, where he is promoting Hairspray.
The Disney Channel has said it is continuing negotiations with the High School Musical cast, including Hudgens, for a third installment of the movie series, according to the Chicago Tribune. “Vanessa has apologized for what was obviously a lapse in judgment,” Disney said in a statement. “We hope she’s learned a valuable lesson.”
Ew! Gross! Nick-on-Disney action. Plus, if this were taken before she was famous, it makes her very very underage. Therefore, everyone who looked at the pics is a pedophile. This means you, PERVERT!
This is Drake Bell. Kind of a poor man’s Zac Efron, no?
