A teenager who posted naked photos of several St Kilda AFL stars on Facebook said she did so out of revenge.
The 17-year-old girl told The Age newspaper she hated St Kilda and the AFL "because they treated me with disrespect" after she allegedly fell pregnant to a Saints player when she was a schoolgirl.
"I just want to let them know what it feels like to have your reputation absolutely ruined," the girl, who has not been named, told The Age.
The explicit photos, which show Saints captain Nick Riewoldt and fellow player Nick Dal Santo, were posted onto a Facebook account yesterday and quickly went viral around the internet.
Last night a Federal Court judge ordered the photos be removed and Facebook closed the girl's account shortly after 8pm (AEDT). Other links to the photos that sprung up on Twitter were taken down last night but since then the photos have spread and are still widely available.
One photo shows Riewoldt standing naked next to teammate Zac Dawson who is shirtless but wearing jeans.
The other photo shows Dal Santo laying down on a bed in a compromising pose.
"Merry Christmas courtesy of the St Kilda schoolgirl" is written across both photographs.
St Kilda's CEO said he believed one of the photos was taken at least 14 months ago by a teammate during a football trip, and the photos were taken illegally from a player's laptop computer.
But the girl told The Age she had taken the photos at a gathering at another St Kilda player's house in April.
She also claimed to have more photos "of a similar nature" of players from other clubs including West Coast, Sydney, Collingwood, Richmond, Hawthorn and Melbourne that she plans to release over the next few days.
Riewoldt is set to speak to the media later today, while Dal Santo's manager declined to comment on the incident.
