Lawyer says Mischa Barton is the victim of ‘revenge porn’

Mischa Barton‘s lawyer sent out a warning to anyone potentially shopping around nude footage of the actress.

“It has been reported that naked or sexually explicit images of Ms. Barton are being ‘shopped screenshot-i.huffpost.com 2017-03-14 23-42-47around,’” attorney Lisa Bloom wrote in a statement released via Twitter on Tuesday. “Ms. Barton
does not consent to any disclosure of any such images. She believes that she was recorded without her consent by someone she was seeing at the time.”

The letter continues, “There’s a name for this disgusting conduct: revenge pornography. Revenge pornography is a form of sexual assault, and it is also a crime and a civil wrong in California. And we will not stand for it.”

The statement comes a day after the Daily Mail reported that an X-rated video of the 31-year-old “O.C.” actress was being offered to the highest bidder, starting at $500,000.

Bloom also warned that she and her client would go after anyone who “attempts to traffic” the photos or videos.
