Former Disney star Dylan Sprouse is now a “n00d pic dealer,” according to his Twitter description. “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” star’s nude selfies were uploaded online by a girl whom he was apparently sexting.
Dylan and his twin brother Cole were at one time the stars of the mouse house. They ended their Disney reign in 2011 when their show, “The Suite Life on Deck,” concluded. After then, the brothers pretty much stayed away from the limelight.
But over the weekend, Dylan was thrust back into public scrutiny when his nude photos, which he took himself, were posted online.
As the now 21-year-old ex-child star explained, he sent his photos to the wrong person, which the public assumed meant that his sextmate abused his trust and posted the photos on her Tumblr account.
A fan page for the Sprouse brothers has revealed the photo and the Tumblr page of the girl who supposedly leaked Dylan’s pictures.
Dylan appeared to be unperturbed by the controversy, though. He even made fun of the situation while assuring everyone that he is owning up to his mistakes.
His identical twin appeared to find Dylan’s predicament amusing. Cole joked about the size of his brother’s package, adding that it’s as if people have also seen him naked.
To show everyone that he is not taking his nude selfies seriously, Dylan posted a more explicit picture on his own Tumblr page.
“Secondly, the real problem here was not me sending my pictures to someone, but rather, sending them to the WRONG someone. The real travesty is a misplaced trust, and while I am certainly to blame for it, it is a shame that my private life was somehow forcibly dragged into the public’s perception of me,” he wrote.
“What is wrong is that, generally I try to stay cool and collected with my prose and a role model for kids (maybe not anymore shamefully) and this seemingly inconsequential act will likely affect the youth’s impression of me. Not only that, but I worry somewhat for my artistic integrity, and my academic integrity. Not exactly ideal, but I’m to blame and I’ll look this incident in the eye like a man. I did it, but I’d be damned if I didn’t own that sh** like Beyonce would want me to.”
In September, he was spotted working as host as a restaurant in New York, prompting the public to think that he has lost all the money he earned from Disney.
He denied it on his blog, insisting that he is “financially secure,” but he took the job to feed his “over bountiful video game addiction.”
“I also took this as a way to try a new experience, working somewhat below the means I’m used to, as well as a way to socialise and get out of the house. I feel most comfortable when I’m working and doing something, to criticise someone of that is pretty odd. I will potentially return to acting someday, but in no way do I think any experience is a step down for me, but rather a new step in another direction.”
Both Dylan and Cole are attending New York University.
