“I am very proud to represent actress Mischa Barton, who is courageously standing up for her rights. It has been reported that naked or sexually explicit images of Ms. Barton are being ‘shopped around.’ 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,” Bloom wrote in an official statement.

Bloom went on to say that the pornography is “revenge pornography,” a term that describes porn released by a lover in order to embarrass his or her unconsenting partner. In California, revenge pornography is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months in jail as well as a $1,000 fine.

“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,” Bloom said.

So far, there are no lawsuits filed at this time by Barton. However, Bloom said in her statement that she was ready to fight for her client if that day came.

“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. We will fully prosecute you under every available criminal and civil law. You proceed at your peril.”
