The photographer who sparked controversy by suggesting a magazine photo of Demi Moore was digitally altered has reignited his feud with the star.

Moore posed for fashion photographers Mert and Marcus in November and she graced the cover of America's W magazine this month.

But the photo, which depicts the star looking super-slim in a revealing, skin-tight green dress, became the subject of controversy when Citrano claimed the picture had been heavily edited to make her hips and thighs appear smaller.

Moore has since handed Citrano a formal request to make a retraction and apologise for his comments, but he has refused.

And now the snapper is furthering the argument - by pointing out that a Korean version of Moore's cover features a curvier hip, suggesting his original comments were correct.

Citrano says, "Right when you thought (hoped) this whole thing was over, something comes along that, as the Jerky Boys would say, puts a whole different paint job on things. I was back in Maine for Christmas (and of course, holding my breath for an apology and retraction from Demi Moore and her legal team), just hanging out with my Mom and her cat - and in came a cameraphone tip from halfway 'round the world... The January 2010 issue of W Korea just hit the newsstands (with the ironic subtitle Women in Full). Unsurprisingly, they decided to use the excellent Mert & Marcus shot of Demi Moore. But very surprisingly, they installed a new hip on Demi. So: even W's sister publication thought the image looked weird enough to fix.

"This raises a few serious questions for (Moore's lawyer) Martin Singer, his client, and W: did W's Korean team add in a fake hip because they just kinda thought it looked awkward? (Y'know, like I did, before you attacked, discredited, and threatened to sue me?) Or did they merely reveal a hip that was already there, but that Singer, et alia litigiously denied had been accidentally obliterated?

"If it's the former: are Singer, Moore et alia now going to pursue legal action against W Korea? By retouching the image's supposedly 'genuine representation' of her 'absolutely not retouched' hip, did W Korea imply the same things Singer claims I did (but which, of course, I didn't)?

"If it's the latter: who was aware of this? If Mr. Singer and Ms. Moore were aware, this raises some rather serious legal questions. Regardless of it being the dumbest argument ever, some very serious core principles are in play."
