Mischa Barton Confirms She’s The Victim Of “Revenge Porn”

Mischa Barton has been going through a lot recently. Sad she has to add this to the list. E! Online reports the OC actress confirmed the rumors an ex is shopping around an explicit video taken without consent of her. The 31-year-old and her lawyer gave a press conference today on the matter, calling it “revenge porn.”

“I just want to say I’ve been through an incredibly hard and trying time,” she said. “This is a painful situation and my absolute worst fear was realized when I learned that someone I thought I love and trusted was filming my most intimate and private moments without my consent, with hidden cameras. And then I learned something even worse—that someone is trying to sell these videos and make them public.”

She continued, “I came forward to fight this not only for myself, but for all the women out there. I want to protect them from the pain and humiliation that I have had to go through. No woman should have to go through this and I am beyond grateful to Lisa Bloom, the Bloom Firm and to all of my friends who have helped me through this horrific experience. It is a very hard thing to do but I am glad that I am finally standing up for myself.”

Her and her lawyer added they haven’t had contact with the male in question, who she claims to have had a “brief” relationship with, or seen the video. A reporter then asked why a source said Barton is looking at the camera in it.

“I don’t think looking at any particular direction is an indication of knowing that one is being recorded,” her lawyer retorted.

If this is true, I feel awful for her. Let’s hope the images don’t get out, and this sleazy ex gets what he deserves.
