Kanye West has angrily denied that he tweeted a naked photo of his girlfriend Kim Kardashian following a 'Watch the Throne' show in Manchester, England. The snap featured a woman - resembling the reality star - sitting on a bed eating a piece of fruit.

TMZ.com quickly reported that the image never actually appeared on Kanye's Twitter page, with the photo thought to be a hoax. The rapper's representative confirmed this to US Weekly magazine, "In regards to this 'story' that Kanye posted and then took down intimate pictures on his Twitter account: TOTALLY FALSE. Laughably so. This phantom tweet never occurred on his account", adding, "This is obviously the desperate, sad act of someone seeking to gain media exposure by exploiting Kanye's notoriety. Kanye doesn't even know this person, has never seen this picture, and hasn't been on his Twitter account for a day".

Porn star Amia Miley has already claimed the image is of her, tweeting, "Apparently a naked photo of me eating is going viral... as Kim Kardashian.... Im confused". Some of her followers leapt to her support, though others doubted her claims, leading her to respond, "Im not going 2 argue about whether that pic is me or not.. want proof? look at the back dimple piercings. kim k doesn't have those".
