Pix fixed, so stripper drops Oscar De La Hoya suit

It wasn’t fishnet. It was Photoshop.

Ex-Scores stripper Milana Dravnel dropped her $25 million suit against Oscar De La Hoya on Monday after experts concluded photos of the super welterweight champ in drag that she claimed were real had been digitally doctored.

“Oscar’s always claimed the photos were false,” said the boxer’s lawyer, Judd Burstein. “We had experts conclude that they were doctored. She was facing very large damages and so she agreed to drop the case. … The case would have been dismissed anyway.”

Dravnel’s lawyer, Salvatore Strazzullo, who paraded his stiletto-heeled client for the cameras after a February hearing in Manhattan Federal Court, was uncharacteristically mum yesterday.

“No comment,” is all he said.

Dravnel, 22, sued De La Hoya for slander, claiming the champ’s camp urged her to sign an agreement claiming she could not prove the photos were authentic.

Dravnel said the pictures of De La Hoya in fishnets, high heels and a tutu were taken at a Philadelphia hotel in May 2007.

They later made it onto the Internet and were splashed across the pages of the fact-challenged New York Post. Last September, the Post ran the photos beside a story that breathlessly reported Dravnel’s soon-to-air television interview with the CBS tabloid show “The Insider.”

“He would like to put on lingerie, as the pictures show,” the Post quoted Dravnel telling CBS.

Two days later, the Post refused to back off despite De La Hoya’s claims the photos were fake. “No matter what Dravnel says and no matter how much she recants, others are supposedly coming forward to parrot her original account of what happened with the fighter,” the tabloid chirped.
