'Teen Mom' star Amber Portwood "embarrassed" about nude photos

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is embarrassed over the recent release of a set of nude photos, which she claims were stolen and only intended for her own non-sexual, private use.
"Those pics were taken for personal reasons. I didn't send them to anyone. I didn't take them for sexual reasons. This is embarrassing enough. It's just weird. The person who did this is f***ed," Portwood told E! News about the photos, which were published by RadarOnline Thursday.
"I've never given anything to anybody. I wouldn't do that."
Although theTeen Mom star declined to reveal the name of the person she believes stole the photos -- which show off her large tattoo of two-year-old daughter Leah, while not exposing her private parts -- Portwood said she knows who is responsible for hacking into her phone and leaking them.
"I know 100 percent who did it, and I'm going to go after them full force," Portwood said.
According to RadarOnline, a Portwood friend took the nude photos of the 20-year-old posing "the way she thought a pin-up girl would" when she was visiting the friend's home.
"She just wanted to pose!" a source told RadarOnline.
However, Portwood denies that was actually the case.
"RadarOnline totally lied. That is my room, that is my bed, my mirror... You can tell that's my room and when [Teen Mom's third season] comes out, everyone will see that it's my room," Portwood told E! news.
Portwood reportedly wants to "surprise" the person she believes released the photos, but did insist Gary Shirley, her former fiance and child's father, had nothing to do with it.
"No, no, Gary didn't do it. He wasn't around me because of the no contact order when I took those pictures, but there were a bunch of people who were and I'm sure I know who it was," Portwood said.
A Madison County judge Stephen D. Clase issued the no contact order -- which prevented theTeen Mom star from having any contact with Shirley, her victim of domestic violence and battery for several incidents of assault for which she was arrested and charged -- as part of the terms of Portwood's release from jail.
An Indiana judge recently changed the terms of their no-contact order to only prohibit Portwood and Shirley from seeing each other when Leah is present.
