News: Kanye West's Rep On Nude Photo Scandal, "This Is Obviously The Desperate, Sad Act Of Someone"

A representative for rap star Kanye West has stepped up to kill rumors surrounding gossip claiming Ye tweeted, then deleted, a nude photo to his Twitter page this week.
According to Yeezy's rep, there is absolutely no truth behind the tweet rumor mill.
A rep for Mr. West has confirmed that the accusations are bogus, telling MTV's RapFix, "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. 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. It's a shame that in our media culture, the rampant spread of this kind of irresponsible "reporting" occurs with such regularity and with such impunity." (RapFix)
Yesterday, adult film star Amia Miley revealed she is the featured nude woman.
Still, RumorFix has learned that despite the uncanny resemblance, the girl in the picture is none other than porn star, Amia Miley. "Apparently a naked photo of me eating is going viral ... as Kim Kardashian ... I'm confused," she tweeted. "I'm not going to argue about whether that pic is me or not. Want proof? Look at the back dimple piercings. Kim doesn't have those," she then tweeted out the same image Kanye had earlier posted and deleted. "Oh, and my right wrist piercing shows in the pic too ... the end," she adds, pointing out a huge piece of evidence. Kim kardashian does not have a wrist piercing as the woman in the image does, so we're buying Amia's story. Now, as far as when she was in Kanye's hotel room, that's a different story. (RumorFix)
Initial reports claimed Ye took to his Twitter page Tuesday night and unleashed the NSFW photo.
Last night, Yeezy tweeted -- and subsequently deleted -- a picture of a naked brunette sitting in his Manchester, England hotel room and suggestively eating what appears to be a banana. The twittersphere all but collectively agreed that the bare back, side boob, and butt dimples belong to Kardashian. However, porn star Amia Miley suggests that she's the nude woman in Kayne's suite.

However, additional reports suggested Mr. West never posted Miley's shot.
We've done our due diligence, and here's what we found. First, the woman in the pic appears to be porn star Amia Miley. Miley tweeted the same photo of herself on her twitter account in 2011, and she tells us it's her. She also says she's never hooked up with Kanye. Second, although the pic has been sent around with credit to Kanye, we've learned it was never posted on Kanye's account. A source close to Kanye confirms ... he didn't do it. We're told it's all part of #WanksterWednesday -- a prank day where people try to get bogus rumors started. (TMZ)
