Mischa Barton threatens legal action over sex tape

LOS ANGELES —  Actress Mischa Barton’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, on Tuesday said in a statement that the actress is the victim of ‘revenge pornography’ and threateed legal action against anyone touting sexually explicit images of the 31-year-old actress.

Several media outlets have reported the existence of a tape of the “The OC” star taking part in sex acts with an unidentified man, dressed in a black hoodie.

Saying any circulating naked image or video of Barton was recorded without her consent, attorney Lisa Bloom said in a statement released via Twitter: “It has been reported that naked or sexually explicit images of Ms Barton are being shopped around.”

A broker said the tape was being touted around pornographic websites, with an asking price of $500,000, the Daily Mail newspaper reported on Monday.

“Ms Barton does not consent to any disclosure of any such images. She believes she was recorded without her consent by someone she was seeing at the time. There’s a name for this disgusting conduct: revenge pornography.”

Bloom described the footage as “a form of sexual assault,” and “a crime and a civil wrong in California,” adding: “We will not stand for it.”

The London-born actress will speak out about the case at a news conference at Bloom’s offices in southern California on Wednesday, the lawyer said.

“I have a message for anyone who attempts to traffic in these photos or videos of Ms. Barton: We will find you, and we will come after you,” Bloom added.

“We will fully prosecute you under every available criminal and civil law.”

Barton was considered an up-and-coming star thanks to her role in teen drama “The OC” from 2003 to 2007 but she has struggled to emulate her early success.

She was arrested for drunk driving in West Hollywood in 2007 and held in psychiatric care following a mental breakdown in 2009 before various legal battles over property with a landlord and her own mother.

She made headlines again in January when she was caught on video yelling at a neighbor while hanging over her backyard fence, later telling People magazine she had been given a date-rape drug the night before.
