Kanye West has denied claims that he tweeted a naked picture of his girlfriend Kim Kardashian.
The snap, of a nude woman eating a piece of fruit, sparked a Twitter storm, with the picture, which was later deleted, said to resemble socialite and reality TV star Kim.
But the image is thought to have been a hoax, after the rapper's spokesperson said he had nothing to do with the photo and that he doesn't even know who the woman is.
A rep for Kanye told Us Weekly: "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."
