Christina AguileraImages of Christina Aguilera in various stages of undress hit the Web on Wednesday and her rep has quickly responded that they were private in nature and illegally obtained by hackers. The photos were taken by her personal stylist during the production of the video for the song 'Not Myself Tonight' (see the music video after the jump). The images show Aguilera in various outfits including pasties and posing provocatively.

"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 told Us Magazine. "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 rep promise's that legal action will be taken against the hackers who obtained said images and calls their conduct "reprehensible".
