Kanye West has been embarrassingly caught with his pants down in a nude photo scandal, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
The self-snapped pictures of the music icon, showing his private parts, were reportedly sent to a number of women, and are now for sale and being shopped to various media outlets.
RadarOnline.com has seen the two images - both of which leave little to the imagination.
One image shows a nude Kanye from the chest up, wearing sunglasses and a gold chain, while the second photo shows the singer's genitals provocatively exposed from his boxer briefs.
"These pics have been floating around since he hit so many girls up on MySpace," according to the source of the images.
"He probably sent them to many, many women."
In a recent magazine interview, Kanye admitted he had contemplated posing naked as part of his desire to "break every rule of hip-hop".
"It's like Björk," he said, "if she wanted to pose naked, you'd be like, 'Oh, that's Björk.'
"But if I wanted to pose naked, people would draw all type of things into it.
"I definitely feel like, in the next however many years, if I work out for two months, that I'll pose naked."
