travis barker getty Travis Barker wants nude photos taken down, fires off cease and desist letterBlink 182 drummer Travis Barker has gotten his lawyers involved over some nude photos on the site Media Takeout. The photos were posted Wednesday morning (Jan. 18), but have since been removed from the site.

TMZ is reporting that Barker’s lawyers fired off a cease and desist letter, saying it was an “unauthorized use of private photos.” And sources close to Barker tell TMZ the photos were over five years old and “private and never intended for public viewing or to be seen by anyone else.”

If you’re curious, Gossip Overload has them (warning: NSFW in any way). Barker’s face is not in the photos, but the tattoos give it away. Oh, and much hay has been made about the size, which – let’s just say it’s not “All the Small Things.”
