Story body
The Mean Girls star, who banked $1 million (£625,000) for the nude spread, had planned to give fans a sneak peek of the Marilyn Monroe-inspired images during an appearance on America's The Ellen DeGeneres Show next Thursday (15Dec11).
But an unauthorised photo of the highly-anticipated cover shot was posted on the internet on Wednesday (07Dec11) - and the complete set of revealing images followed in another unofficial release on Friday (09Dec11).
Among the images, Lohan, wearing just a pair of high heels, is shown posing on all fours on a red couch shaped like a pair of lips, while she is also depicted reclining on a bed with her hands on her breasts.
Hefner brushed off the early unveiling, insisting the Lohan issue "is going to be a true Collector's Edition", but now he's taking action to try and combat the potential loss in sales by rush-releasing the January/February (12) edition of the magazine.
In a post on, he writes, "Because of the interest & the Internet leak, we're releasing the Lindsay Lohan issue early."
A specific release date had yet to be announced as WENN went to press.
