Leaked Lindsay Lohan Photos Prompt Playboy to Release Issue Early

Lindsay Lohan's highly-anticipated nude photos for the upcoming issue of Playboy magazine were leaked earlier this week, sending the men's magazine into a frenzy. Playboy was reportedly worried that the leak would result in diminished sales, so now they've decided to release the issue early.

On Friday, Hugh Hefner tweeted:

"Because of the interest & the Internet leak, we're releasing the Lindsay Lohan issue early. The Lindsay Lohan issue of Playboy is going to be a true Collector's Edition . . . Lindsay Lohan was the top search name on the Internet yesterday. Her issue goes on sale late next week. Hot. Hot. Hot."

LiLo was supposed to show off the cover and the photos on The Ellen Degeneres Show next week, but the leak ruined that. Us Weekly says that a Russian hacker is taking credit for the leak, saying that he discovered the photos on a file sharing website in Russia.
