Remember when we told you that Justin Bieber's stolen laptop could be a goldmine if it fell into the wrong hands? Well, it looks as though the 18-year-old had every reason to fret his little socks off on Twitter, with The Sun newspaper claiming a nude picture of the star has emerged online.

The Never Say Never star was on-stage in Washington state when a thief raided his tour manager's office, stealing his computer and a camera. Just hours later, an explicit image - allegedly of Justin - began doing the rounds. The person in the photograph reportedly has the same tattoo as the singer (a tiny bird on his hip), though his face is not shown. After the robbery, Bieber had told Twitter followers, "Sucks when u take personal footage and people dont respect your privacy," adding, "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." Now what kind of 'personal footage' would that be, Justin?

Despite losing his most treasured possessions, Bieber appears to be looking on the bright-side, telling Twitter followers before a show in Vancouver on Wednesday, "about to see my beliebers...and it's gonna BE ALRIGHT."
