Daniel Matsunaga Photo Scandal
Quite a number of celebrity nude photos proliferate in cyberspace, and three pictures that are sending netizens crazy these days are of Brapanese model Daniel Matsunaga.
Matsunaga was captured in his birthday suit as featured in one website. One photo showed the Brazilian hunk displaying his bare behind. Another photo captured him in a pose where he was covering his most private part while facing the camera.

These pictures were said to be for Kee’s book “Superstars,” which also featured other international models in all states of undress.

Bulletin Entertainment tried to reach Matsunaga’s manager for comment through his PR man Doc Gamboa. Gamboa hesitantly said, “ayaw patulan,” when pressed to comment on the controversial photos.
It is said that the manager requested the website administrator to remove the nude photos of Matsunaga.
Matsunaga is currently in Brazil for a short vacation. He will be back on May 15, which he announced on the premiere night of his movie “D’ Survivors.”

Another project that Matsunaga is poised to do is a primetime series with Heart Evangelista titled, “Langit Sa Piling Mo
