Danity Kane singer Aubrey O’Day’s lawyer says he is prepping legal action against a photographer who allegedly sold altered photos, which he denies.
Earlier this week, Daily Mail posted photos of a woman walking two dogs in Palm Springs. The person in the photo looks drastically different than photos posted to Aubrey’s social media.
This morning, Aubrey took to Twitter to blast the photos saying they weren’t real. She posted a photo of herself in front of an oversized mirror in her home. She is standing on the couch while holding up a sign reading, “It is August 31, 2020 9pm. I’m Aubrey O’Day, this is degrading.”
it’s so sick what ppl will do for click bait! and that my lawyer needed this photo to defend me against it.. when is this industry going to stop abusing women’s bodies! Sorry my place is a mess, currently remodeling my glam room- I’m sure it’ll be written that I’m a hoarder next! pic.twitter.com/Q1xU25LzMh

Page Six spoke to Aubrey’s lawyer, Ben Walker, who said “The photos came to this firm’s attention last night, which is why legal action has not taken place yet. Aubrey’s post speaks for itself. The person in the paparazzi photos is not the same person in the picture that Aubrey shared on Instagram, in that the photo has been altered in an unflattering manner. It’s clear to see that there are noticeable differences between the two photos.”
He added, “Aubrey has shared an unedited photo to put this issue to bed quickly. While it appears that body shaming has become the norm (e.g., comments were made earlier this year about Jason Momoa and are frequently made about female celebrities), Aubrey will not tolerate it, nor will she allow others to manipulate her image, and finds it sad that this is a newsworthy topic given the current climate of the world.”
A source close to the photographer claims the photos were not altered and only cropped.
