Longtime Nickelodeon favourite Jennette McCurdy has been left red-faced after three sexy shots of the child star in her lingerie leaked online.

The racy photos emerged on the Internet on Monday (03Mar14), days after the iCarly star gave a candid interview about her brief romance with basketball player Andre Drummond.

In the Nerdist.com podcast, the 21 year old claimed she ended their week-long relationship last September (13) after she was left unimpressed by their first kiss, revealing, "It just didn't go great... no sparks. The mouths... the shapes weren't right."

MCCurdy has since addressed her saucy snap scandal with a post on Twitter.com, in which she suggests the Detroit Pistons star is to blame for the pictures becoming public.

Taking to the micro-blogging site on Tuesday (04Mar14), she wrote, "To anyone disappointed: I sent those pics (sic) to 1 person. You can connect the dots. Shocked someone would stoop so low. I just speak w/ (with) candor."

However, Drummond has since hit back, telling Tmz.com, "I did not leak any photos of Jm... I want nothing to do with her or the situation. I'm just worried about ball (basketball)."

MCCurdy struck up a flirty friendship with Drummond over Twitter last summer (13) after the sportsman made it known to fans that he had a big crush on her.
