Aussie model Lara Bingle has lashed out at a gossip magazine, claiming it digitally altered photos of her at the beach to add cellulite to her bikini body.

Bingle posted the cover of the latest edition of Famous magazine on Instagram, featuring the model frolicking at the beach in a black string bikini. Next it it she attached the same shot which featured in rival gossip mag, Who, sans-cellulite about a month ago.

She added the caption: "Perpetuating self doubt in all women in the name of making a quick buck. Sickening. Same day different magazine. YOU ARE A DISGRACE FAMOUS MAGAZINE".

Bingle's fury hasn't calmed today and she seems to be winning the Twitter war against the weekly publication, @FAMOUSweekly.


The magazine reportedly responded on Twitter at 11.55pm last night, saying: "The images are not photoshopped" and two hours later: "Our pics are legit. No photoshop".


Bingle's Twitter account has been flooded with messages of support from her followers.

The 26-year-old, who is dating actor Sam Worthington, signed off on Twitter with a retweeted message from New Zealand born TV personality Charlotte Dawson, who herself has been a victim in the past of online trolling on her Twitter account.


Where the dimple debate goes next is anyone's guess.
