Nude pictures of an 18-year-old woman posted on a porn website could be of former Operator Please member Sarah Gardiner, an Australian music blog has claimed.
The images, posted under the name 'Tricia L', bear a striking similarity to the 18-year-old keyboardist. The blog Pedestrian claims they received an anonymous tip-off that the model featured in the photo set was "none other than former Operator Please keyboardist Sarah Gardiner".
Gardiner was a founding member of the highly successful Gold Coast band who shot to fame with the hit track "Just a Song About Ping Pong", but left in April 2008. An article in the Courier Mail said she had left the band "by mutual consent".
Gardiner announced the split on her Facebook page, referencing the film clip for 'Two For My Seconds', which the band had just finished filming.
"The video features myself truly playing the piano on a busy street in Sydney - an oddly appropriate send off!" she reportedly wrote.
A representative from EMI said they were aware of the images but could not comment on them.
This is not the first time saucy nude photos of an Australian music star have been discovered on the web. Last year THE FIX broke the story that photos allegedly of Veronicas star Jess Origliasso had appeared on a nude celebrity photo website. Origlaisso later confirmed that some of the photos were in fact of her.
