Despite recently-leaked photos to the contrary, Caroline Pal says she has "never shot topless photos, ever. No topless, no stripping."
In a new interview with Las Vegas newspaper The Review Journal, the girlfriend of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps says she's suffering from the glare of the celebrity gossip spotlight. The wave of publicity "has been really hard," she said.
"Those photos are not a statement of who I am," Caroline Pal added, referring to the aforementioned provocative images, which were taken a few years ago as part of a photo shoot for Beverly Hills Pimp & Hos, a popular urban clothing line.
An example, Caroline Pal says, of a picture that implies she "was full frontally topless."
For someone that's supposedly livid over her quasi-naked pictures, Pal can't stop talking about them. She continued, railing against those that have reduced her to nothing more than a skanky stripper.
