Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi promotes her new book "Gorilla Beach" in White Plains, N.Y., on May 19.

We're guessing Snooki didn't want to see these nude photos of her popping up on a U.K. paper's website.

The "Jersey Shore" star appears to be the latest celeb victim of sexy cell phone photos gone wrong, after the photos were leaked on the Internet.

So, what's the deal?

While it's not clear exactly who leaked the photos, the 24-year-old reality star can be seen taking photos of herself in a robe opened to reveal her body, as well as completely in the buff in the snaps.

"Clearly these are old and personal photos that were not meant for the public," Snooki's rep told E! News exclusively. "It's a shame someone decided to leak them for obvious personal gain."

Meanwhile, the usually loquacious reality star, who is pregnant with her first child with fianc Jionni LaVelle (she's not sporting a baby bump in the pictures) has kept mum on the leaked snaps so far.
