The X Factor star is caught up in a narcotics nightmare after pictures from a private party have been leaked.
Pictures and video have emerged of Home and Away star Johnny Ruffo at a recent Sydney party sitting around a table with lines of white powder on it.
In one photograph, Johnny appears to be using a credit card to arrange the mystery power into neat long lines along the table in an expensive Sydney hotel room.
The 24-year-old singer and actor is refusing to comment on the images, but a close friend who was at the "small private party” spoke exclusively toWoman’s Day.
"I don't know who took the photos," he says.
"I was at the party with him. We were just having fun."
While the snaps don't show Johnny touching the substance on the table, they’re sure to shake-up his clean-cut image.
"He is going to be pretty annoyed these got out," says his fellow party-goer. "It was a small trusted group of friends – perhaps someone forwarded them on and that's how they got out."
But that’s the only word from Johnny’s camp so far. "I don’t want to talk about it any further," says the source.
Johnny is notoriously private about his personal life.
Following his reported hook-up with The X Factor judge Dannii Minogue in 2012, Johnny managed to swerve tricky questions and refused to talk about the relationship, recently tellingWoman's Dayhe had to "keep his head down" after news of the shock romance broke.
The photographs will no doubt send shockwaves through his fan base, who are predominantly young teenage girls, and their parents.
