"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," Aguilera's rep tells Us. "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."

The pictures, which feature the 29-year-old singer posing in several skin-revealing ensembles, were reportedly taken before Aguilera announced her split from husband Jordan Bratman.

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