Blogs Duped By Fake Lindsay Lohan Nudes

A number of bad blogs fell victim to a hoax by photographer Harvey Edwards, who claimed he took a series of naked photos of Lindsay Lohan a few years ago.

One especially gullible webloid — read by virtually no one — even interviewed Edwards for an “exclusive” about the alleged naked photos. Of course, that site and many others didn’t bother to fact-check with Lohan or her rep to verify the authenticity of the shots.

What makes it all particularly pathetic is that the woman featured in the pictures doesn’t even look like Lohan. NOTE: We have not linked to the fake photos.

Suffice to say, Gossip Cop got in touch with Edwards, Lohan’s rep, and even Lohan herself. Lohan tells us exclusively she “never” posed for Edwards, and adds, “I’ve never heard of someone by that name before.”

Her rep, however, does know who Edwards is because he says the photographer has reached out on several occasions seeking to shoot the actress. Edwards, for his part, admits to Gossip Cop that he’s never photographed Lohan — naked or otherwise.

He tells us that he pulled the prank as a lark, and that “people will believe anything if it comes off credible.” Edwards even feels the public “doesn’t care” whether or not something’s true. Obviously many of you disagree, which is why Gossip Cop has become the most popular site of its kind.
