Contrary to media reports, KJ Apa has not fallen prey to a nude photo leak this week, says a representative.

The Riverdale star was alleged to be the person in two images published online recently - one reportedly a close-up of a man's genitals.

According to reports, one photo was taken from an Instagram private message and the other from Snapchat, with "baby, look what's waiting for you" written on it.

However, a spokesperson for Apa told NZME the raunchy pics were "clearly photoshopped" and added that he was not a Snapchat user.

The 20-year-old is New Zealand's most popular Instagram celebrity, with 5.4 million followers.

Many among his huge online fanbase had earlier taken to social media to express just how thrilled with they were thinking the nude photos were actually him.
