Paulina Gretzky posts new provocative photos on Instagram, then deletes them

While her dad is famous for playing 90 per cent from the neck up, it looks like Paulina Gretzky is intent on making her name from the neck down.

Wayne Gretzky's 23-year-old daughter made headlines in November when she shuttered her Twitter account amid reports that the Great One pressured her to do so after she posted overly provocative pictures of herself. The wannabe model returned to the social networking site a week later with slightly less suggestive photos.

But after making a show-stopping lingerie-clad appearance at a club last month, Paulina Gretzky seems to be back to her old tricks. This time it's on the picture-sharing app Instagram, where she recently posted some photos of herself in a bikini and cavorting with male friends in Las Vegas.

Though Gretzky reportedly removed her pictures soon after posting them, the Vancouver Sun captured the photos before they were deleted.

Gretzky's not the only sports world personality who has gotten flak for posting racy photos of herself on Twitter. Tennis star Serena Williams was criticized in 2011 after posting an image of herself dressed in lingerie, standing behind a transparent curtain.

But Williams's photo is relatively staid compared to other celebrity Twitpics. Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, and Rihanna have all uploaded topless pictures of themselves. And Miley Cyrus was only 16 when she was slammed for posing for some seductive photos with her 44-year-old "Last Song" producer Adam Shenkman in 2009.
