Seven Year Switch’s Kaitlyn has come under fire after explicit images of her have surfaced online.
The images are of a sexual nature and were sourced from old footage from Kaitlyn’s time as a webcam model.
Kaitlyn spoke to New Idea as soon as the news broke.
‘Everything is happening at once, I almost feel like this shouldn’t surprise anyone after what they’ve seen so far [on the show],’ Kaitlyn explains. ‘It is from a very dark deep past…I have a very open minded family and they all knew about it…They’re proud of who I am today.’
The pictures resurfaced on a US Internet forum this week after users discovered Kaitlyn, who is originally from Florida, would be featuring on Australian TV.
Channel Seven responded to the images with the following statement. 'Kaitlyn is honest about her social website activity which happened several years ago during a very low point in her life.'
They continued: 'As she rebuilt her life and came to terms with the heartbreaking loss of a treasured family member, Kaitlyn took control of mistakes she had made and tried to remove the offending vision that was no longer a truthful representation of her or her life.'
Kaitlyn's brother, Eric Lind Isham, died aged 19 in a motorcycle crash in June 2010.
'Regardless of Kaitlyn's well-intentioned plan, some people have accessed the old vision and transferred that vision to their hard drives.
'Some of these people are now offering to sell this vision. Also available via this group is vision they are claiming to be Kaitlyn - in fact it is not Kaitlyn.'
