Teen Mom 3 star Katie Yeager was featured on the show’s two-hour season premiere last night alongside her ex-boyfriend Joey Maes and two-year-old daughter Molli. But the 19-year-old from Rock Springs, Wyoming is hiding a little secret that has MTV scrambling to cover up; nude pictures. Katie had sent nude photos to an ex-boyfriend who in turn offered them for sale to Radar Online. The four different images show Katie completely topless. One features her naked in front of a mirror while another shows her tattoo on her hip bone. The two other most revealing shots feature her playing with a sex toy and pleasuring herself while lying naked on the bed.
“The photos were sexted to me… she loved to send messages, all the time,” the unrevealed seller of the photos told Radar Online.
Since Katie was over eighteen when the photos were sent, no charges can be filed on either’s behalf. In many states underage “sexters” can face child pornography charges! With the person taking the pictures facing up to 10 years in jail! Still, MTV is fuming and attempting to cover this picture scandal up, especially since Katie had done recent press about how she wanted to change the perception of Teen Mom following all the scandals of previous seasons. In a recent interview, Katie said:
“When I started researching (Teen Mom), I saw, wow! It really is making a difference, It’s controversial, but it’s definitely helping young girls to see the consequences of having unprotected sex and having sex too early. And I felt like I want to help. Why would I close myself off to an opportunity to help so many people just because of what people are going to say about me personally? There’s always going to be negative people out there, even if you’re not on a TV show. I’ve accepted that. There are people who don’t agree with my life, the way my life is, or just don’t like me for whatever reason. I have enough support on my end in the people that are around me and in my life. That’s the only thing that matters to me.”
Still, Katie’s not the first who has had naked pictures come out. Original Teen Mom cast members Amber Portwood and Farrah Abraham dealt with the scandal, as did Teen Mom 2’s Jenelle Evans. I really wish these girls would learn from one another’s mistakes and realize that you can’t trust anyone with naked pictures!
