Jesse McCartney - No Nude Photo, Or Else

1/14/2010 2:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse McCartney wants everyone to know ... if you publish a nude photo of him -- even one that looks like him -- he'll sue you.

The photo is floating around ... showing what looks like a naked McCartney all by his lonesome, laying on a bed with a candy G-string, fully exposed. According to the New York Post, it's being shopped around by an angry ex. Someone sent it to TMZ on Dec. 22, but we did not publish it.

McCartney's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, has fired off a cease and desist letter to any web site that would dare publish the photo.

Holley warns, "a person is attempting to circulate a nude photo which purports to be Mr. McCartney." She goes on, "McCartney was unaware of the taking of this alleged photo, did not knowingly participate in the taking of this photo, and certainly did not consent to the taking of such photo."

Holley says in the letter, "it appears that this photo has been manipulated and doctored by computer software."

Holley says the publication of the photo "would be a grave invasion of Mr. McCartney's privacy rights" and she'll go after anyone who publishes it for "substantial monetary damages."

"He has no recollection of taking this photo."

I don't need to be a lawyer to notice the careful choice of words. Ms. Holly avoids stating whether he did or didn't take the photo.

many people are saying that he is hiding a small weener because he doesn't want anyone to see his naked photos. for me he is just protecting his image and he does not want to be known as a pornstar like actor. If he has a small or big pe*** it doesn't matter, what matters is he knows the right thing to do. To keep his private life and private body parts private...

The photo has been on a message board for several hours now (about 6 or so) and has yet to be taken down. I doubt a lawsuit will fix that, as the site is owned by some Swedes.

I have viewed TMZ LIVE and think to many personal commits. Get to the stars and quit acting like you are a talk show. Love always you rule. Please do not change your vin.

If it isn't real, why is he so worried? There are thousands of fake celebrity nudes out there. Most of us could care less. Paraphrasing Shakespeare - The boy doth protest too much, methinks.

LOL! I love the legal threats. Anonymous people could post that pic all over the place and there isn't a damn thing the law could do about it.

The best path to take is have some humor about it and hope it goes away eventually. Trying to be a hard ass just makes you look like an a-hole.

"manipulated and doctored"-my ass-that's code for 'I have a penis the size of a 5 year old'!!! Obviously, if he was sporting a large dong, or even if the photo was doctored to show a large dong, he wouldn't mind it being shown.

BTW, who is this crybaby?
