"Jennifer has absolutely no photos of a sexual nature on her phone," the insider said.
“The only pictures on her phone are those she’s taken to show doctors and other medical professionals during her pregnancy, She’s upset by the suggestion she has sexy photos on her phone when the truth is any images on her phone are purely for private medical purposes and she only intended them to be seen by her doctors.” The source further added.
Moreover, the source also claimed that few of the photos that have been leaked are not of Jennifer's.
'What's made it even worse is that extra pictures have been included alongside the leaked ones which are more explicit and are not even her – and she doesn't want people to think that they are.' The insider said.
