Mischa Barton wins revenge porn case

Published on

Actress Mischa Barton has won the revenge porn lawsuit, according to her lawyer Lisa Bloom.

In March, reports emerged that a sex tape involving Barton was being shopped to porn outlets, and the former “O.C.” actress fired back by filing a lawsuit against Jon Zacharias, her former beau and one of the reported peddlers of the tape.

On Monday, Barton and Bloom appeared in the Superior Court here and reached a settlement, under which Zacharias agreed not to distribute any of the images and to turn them over to Barton, according to channel CBS Los Angeles, reports variety.com.

“Court victory today with Mischa Barton. Distribution of the explicit images banned, ex stays 100 yards away forever,” Bloom tweeted on Monday, with a photograph of herself and Barton smiling outside of the courthouse.

In a statement obtained by people.com, Bloom said: “Mischa did not consent to the release of any such photos or videos. We went into court and obtained court orders barring anyone from trafficking in images like this of Mischa.”

“Today we have won an important agreement, which permanently blocks the dissemination of these images. All explicit photos and videos of Mischa must be handed over to me immediately. Her ex must stay 100 yards away from her today, tomorrow, and forever. And the court will retain jurisdiction over the case in case we need further enforcement.”

In court papers, Barton alleged that Zacharias recorded the former couple while they were having sex, as well as took photographs of her while she was nude, without her knowledge. The suit added that Zacharias was trying to sell the tapes for $500,000.

In March, when Barton first retained Bloom, Barton said in a statement that her “worst fear was realized when I learned that someone I thought I loved and trusted was filming my most intimate and private moments, without my consent with hidden cameras.”

Later that month, Barton continued to speak out about the issue on “The Dr. Phil Show,” saying that her former beau was engaging in “complete emotional blackmail.”
