Mischa Barton is standing up for her rights!
With the help of attorney Lisa Bloom, the OC star is fighting back against the person trying to sell a sex tape of her to porn distributors.
In a press conference on Wednesday, Mischa explained what steps she was taking to protect herself — and how this ordeal has already affected her.
She opened up by saying:
“This is a painful situation, and my absolute 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. And then I learned something even worse — that someone was trying to sell these videos and make them public.”
Thankfully she has one hell of a lawyer in her corner.
After a very powerful, intimidating public statement yesterday, Miz Bloom says she rushed to the courthouse and got an emergency temporary restraining order; all “showing and selling” of the images has been blocked.
Furthermore, she reiterated her previous threats to the seller, saying:
“We will come after you.”
We hope this strong legal action works. In addition to protecting Mischa, it will let other victims of revenge porn know the law is on their side — and that will likely encourage them to stand up and fight too.
