Reality star forced to defend herself after posting nude selfies

She's never been one to shy away from controversy, but now Lauren Goodger has a few sharp words for her haters.

The TOWIE star raised some eyebrows recently after posting a number of revealing pictures on social media. The drama started when she uploaded a (nearly) topless pic to Instagram with the caption "I make a mess when I get ready."

The photo sent fans into a frenzy, with followers noting that "she didn't leave a lot to the imagination." Agreed! 

It was followed just two days later by an even steamier picture, this time of the star's derrière! A first version of the image was deleted and replaced by a slightly cropped one – though it still shows off quite a bit:

Lauren has addressed the negative comments head on though and says she has no time for the criticism. "Every time I upload a sexy pic of myself it causes so much controversy!" she wrote.

"Some people love it and some people hate it, but all the haters just make me laugh. Why does it bother them so much and why do they feel so much anger? …At the end of the day, I'm a 28-year-old woman and I'm allowed to show off my body."

She also admitted that she had edited her bum selfie after realising she'd taken things too far. "As for the bum pic, the reason I deleted and re-cropped it was because after I posted it I realised it was a bit too much."

Fair play to her for speaking out, but we're still not sure what we make of the "belfie"!
