The Russian model and girlfriend of soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, posed for the December cover wearing lingerie, but her reps say editors photoshopped off her underclothes to expose her rear in several shots inside the magazine.

The men’s magazine is reportedly doctored three of the fourteen images to entice readers to buy the magazine that featured the beautiful Irina Shayk on the cover with the headline that screamed ‘Want to see the most beautiful creature in the world nude?’

According to a press release sent out by ARC NY Talent PR — which just so happens to be Marc Jacobs‘ ex Lorenzo Martone’s agency — Ms. Shayk posed for the European glossy in varying degrees of undress, but never naked.

“Model Irina Shayk is a victim of photoshop and GQ’s Spain negligence in her recent cover, editorial and feature in the magazines December issue.”

“The Intimissimi ambassador dawns [sic] the cover in an Intimissimi lingerie body suit but unfortunately was photoshopped to appear naked in 3 images of the 14 page spread.”

“In every image photographed, Ms. Shayk was dressed in lingerie in the artistic and tasteful shots done by photographer Vincent Peters, but due to negligence on GQ’s part it seems as if Ms. Shayk ‘posed’ entirely nude, which is false,” said Elite Model Management.

“A contract was signed on behalf of Ms. Shayk by Elite Model Management where she was to have approval of the interview, cover and images and was refused that right by the publication.”

“Ms. Shayk was not nude and did not approve these images. Irina Shayk never saw the images, cover or caption that was used in GQ Spain.”

“Futhermore, in an effort to sell more magazines, GQ Spain printed ‘Want to see Animal Irina Shayk nude?’ This kind of statement isn’t only true but also defamatory towards Ms Shayk’s persona.”

“[All these] image this lack of professionalism and neglect towards the future of Ms Shayk’s modeling career in an effort to sell magazines is not only shocking but unacceptable from such an established and prestige publication as GQ.”

GQ Spain editor Javier Fernandez de Angulo, who was present during the shoot, told UK’s The Sun: “The model took her clothes off completely naturally.”

We found the photos in question on GQ Spain’s website. These images (check the full gallery here) are now present on the GQ website’s front page. [via Styleite]
