Ariana Grande has become the victim of a naked photo hoax.

Pop princess Ariana Grande has become the latest victim of a Twitter hoax after photos allegedly showing her naked emerged online.

Fans were left shocked after images of the 20-year-old singer went viral minutes after being posted on Twitter on 31 March.

In one of the images the Baby I hitmaker appears to frolicking on a beach topless with wet hair. Another allegedly shows her hiding in a dustbin naked with a young man.

As news of the supposed scandal spread across social media the images got retweeted thousands of times and #ArianasNudesLeaked started trending worldwide.

While some fans refused to accept that the images were authentic, others slammed those responsible for the alleged leak.

But all was not as it seemed and the whole scandal was soon exposed as a very early April Fool's Day prank.

Although Grande has not commented on the joke, hopefully she was able to see the funny side.
