Mischa Barton has fought back at the paparazzi claiming pictures of the young ‘O.C’ star topless and with cellulite on her thighs were doctored.

The photos were shot by Australian paparazzo Jamie Fawcett last week, whilst Barton was staying at a hotel in Queensland and clearly show a bikini-clad Barton was much evident cellulite on her thigh.

Barton’s representative, Lisa Perkins, has hit out at the photos- which were splashed on the cover of this week’s NW magazine – insisting that they were just the product of money-hungry publications manipulating photos for a story.

“Those photos are doctored. I’m not saying she’s perfect, nobody is. But they’ve given a 22-year-old woman the legs and bottom of an 80-year-old.” Perkins revealed to The New York Daily News.

“Look at the shots that were taken shortly before on a beach in Los Angeles. Did she develop all that cellulite in a couple of weeks? There’s a lot you can do with Photoshopping.”

Perkins further titled the photographer of the images in question, Jamie Fawcett, a “parasite” out to make Barton look bad because “she called him out for taking the topless shots.”

She adds, “It is a shame that publications tend to highlight an issue that isn’t fair to a young girl. However, sometimes these are the things that sell pictures.”

These images of 22-year-old Barton were splashed in various magazines and newspapers and online last week. One publication of which was in the ‘British Daily Mail’ newspaper, who swear by the authenticity of photos, placing Barton’s immaculate cellulite problem down to her ‘bad habits’.

“The nasty habit [smoking] is one of the reasons [for] premature emergence of her cellulite.” The paper claimed.

Also standing by the photos is photographer Fawcett, who later rebuked on Perkin’s claims, revealing to Ninemsn that the photos were “an accurate representation of what was photographed that day”.

“Iwouldn’t seek to publicly embarrass her with nudity or health issues or body image issues,” he said.

“There was no Photoshopping whatsoever. We are not in the business of doctoring or altering pictures and our clients know that.”

“It is a shame that publications tend to highlight an issue that is not fair to a young girl. … However, sometimes these are the things that sell pictures.”

Fawcett concluded his rebuke stating: “I simply take the picture.”
