Leo Messi the victim of blonde stripper photoshop?

They were supposed to be the photos that "threatened the marriage of Lionel Messi" according to the Argentinian papers that published them - the Barcelona star caught in the arms of a blonde stripper at a Las Vegas party.

Pronto splashed the pictures over their front cover earlier this week - branding it a "night of chaos".

But it turns out it all might be fake. The latest reports claim the grainy images were photoshopped - a picture of Messi holding his baby Thiago edited to make him appear to be buried in the bosom of a Las Vegas dancer.

And another allegedly substituted Messi standing around innocently for Messi in the arms of the same girl.

The party, thought to have been organised by Brazilian World Cup legend Ronaldo, was held at some point in July in America following Messi''s charity matches in the country.

The Barcelona ace, who is currently with the team on their preseason tour, has so far not commented on the story. Neither have the club.

Have a look at the photos below - what do you reckon? Photoshopped or not?
