Justin Bieber has found himself mired in a nude photo scandal just days after his personal laptop and camera were reportedly stolen during a recent concert performance.

The singer took to his personal Twitter page on Wednesday where he complained about the alleged theft and hours later, a nude photo resembling the teenage heartthrob went viral on social networking sites. Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, denied that the photos are actually of the singer.
"[The] nudes are fake," Braun told HollywoodLife.com.
The self-proclaimed thief, who has not yet been identified, has reportedly sent several threats and taunts to Bieber via Twitter under the username @gexwy. The person claims to have Bieber's stolen items in possession and is threatening to release his personal information to "the world."
"@justinbieber notice us and answer your dms or we are going to put the other videos from the camera out!" the user tweeted on Oct. 10.
"@justinbieber i got your stupid dms. i dont think so. gonna show the world. TOMORROW!" the user wrote later tweeting. "TOMORROW. u've been warned. should of listened @justinbieber."
Bieber, 18, responded to the threats and remained confident that the content would not offend his large fan base.
"No matter what you have and what you post tomorrow i know my fans wont leave me. screw it. #toostrong," Bieber tweeted.
The pop star appeared to be in better spirits than he was upon initially discovering that his items were stolen.
"Sucks when u take personal footage and people dont respect your privacy. yesterday during the show me and my tour manager josh had some stuff stolen. really sucks. people should respect other's property. i had a lot of personal footage on that computer and camera and that is what bothers me the most. #lame #norespect," Bieber wrote in a series of tweets.
