Lindsay Lohan was all set to debut her Playboy cover photo on the Ellen Degeneres Show next week, but was upstaged by an Internet leak of the cover by blogger Perez Hilton.
While the cover created quite the buzz, on Friday another batch of photos leaked online, these just happened to be the full Lindsay Lohan Playboy photo shoot.
X 17 reveals Playboy is reportedly furious over the photo leak, because they were banking on the Lohan mag being their biggest seller of the year.
The fact that the entire spread is now online will potentially have a negative impact on magazine sales — unless it has Collector's Edition potential!
Hef has used social network twitter to try to sell that.
Hef Tweeted Friday:
"The Lindsay Lohan pictorial has been leaked on the Internet & is causing a sensation … The Lindsay Lohan issue of Playboy is going to be a true Collector's Edition."
TMZ now reveals they also have a photo, "the only surviving shot from the Lindsay Lohan Playboy photo shoot that hasn't been touched up by professionals."
The pic was taken behind the scenes during Lindsay's 2-day shoot back in November — right before she disrobed for a Marilyn Monroe-inspired spread.
