Rees' attorney, Mario Torres, issued a statement to TV show Extra, which read: "Katie Rees, Miss Nevada USA, wants the public to know she was 17 and had a lapse in judgment. The actions on that evening in subject are in no way indicative of the person she is or the person she has become...She is a law-abiding citizen and talented adult. This was an isolated incident that occurred more than five years ago when she was a minor."

Donald Trump, co-owner of the Miss Universe pageant, was having none of it. He told the New York Post: "I saw some horrendous pictures. I'm not shy when it comes to pictures, and these pictures were far beyond the scope of what she should be doing - there was no question." ®
