Taylor Swift’s team considering legal action over alleged nude photo, report says

The utterly bizarre site Celebrity Jihad posted a picture of a topless blonde woman with the headline, “Taylor Swift Topless Private Pic Leaked?” The post is still live on the site.

The singer’s team sent a letter to the site requesting the removal of the photo, which does not appear to be authentic, TMZ reports. The letter reportedly said the post contains “false pornographic images and false news.”

Celebrity Jihad is now offering to take the photo off — if Swift “agrees to convert to Islam.” She will also be required to “sacrifice a goat and devour its entrails,” according to the site, which calls itself a ”satirical website” that publishes “fiction as well as factual information.”

This has been a dangerous digital year for Hollywood starlets.Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis, along with about 50 others, had compromising photos stolen from their e-mail accounts. Thanks to the work of the FBI, 35-year-old Christopher Chaney was recently arrested for the hacking. Blake Lively also was forced to deny a nude photo leak earlier this year.

Swift is currently on tour, wearing kitten shirts and staying out of this issue. A rep for the singer has yet to comment. An e-mail to Swift’s agent has not been returned.
