Former The O.C. star, Mischa Barton, has addressed the rumours that an ex-boyfriend is shopping a ‘sex tape’ featuring the actress around Hollywood.
In a press conference, the 31-year-old actress said learning of the betrayal had put her through “an incredibly hard and trying time.”
“This is a painful situation, and my absolute worst fear was realised when I learned that someone I thought I loved and trusted was filming my most intimate and private moments, without my consent [and] with hidden cameras,” she said.
“And then I learned something even worse: That someone is trying to sell these videos and make them public.”
Last night, Barton’s lawyer released a statement that the naked or sexually explicit images of the actress were recorded without her consent.
“There’s a name for this disgusting conduct: revenge pornography,” her attorney, Lisa Bloom, said via a statement released on Twitter.
