Cocktail Waitress Lands Revenge Porn Uppercut

revenge porn laws update
Boxer Adrien “The Problem” Broner entangled in a revenge porn lawsuit.

Looks like boxer Adrien “The Problem” Broner can add revenge porn to his list of – shall we say – ego-fueled displays of pugnacious masculinity. A Nevada waitress and a sex tape feature this go round.

Lights, Camera, Consensual Sex Tape!

A few months back, Broner, a woman named Andrea Reyes, and a third female decided to get it on. Broner asked if he could, ya know, record the event for posterity. According to reports, both the ladies agreed to the ménage à trois, but Reyes only gave her thumbs up if he promised to keep the tape secret — but she never got anything in writing.

What did Broner do? He posted the threesome online for all to see. So, Reyes is suing — and the other woman is staying quiet (though, she may not be able to keep it zipped if she’s subpoenaed).

Reyes contends the unauthorized tape release “caused irreparable injury … and has forever defined the manner in which [the woman] will be viewed by individuals with whom she comes in contact.”

Sex Tape Leads To Revenge Porn Lawsuit

Reyes threw down a barrel of torts in her lawsuit against Broner, including:

  1. Breach of Contract
  2. Breach of Implied Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealings in Contract
  3. Breach of Good Faith and Fair Dealing in Tort
  4. Negligence
  5. Public Disclosure of Private Facts
  6. Appropriation/Right to Privacy
  7. Intentional infliction of emotional distress
  8. Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress

Will Broner’s Sexcapade Partner Win This Revenge Porn Lawsuit?

What are Reyes’ chances of winning this lawsuit? It depends. If she can prove she and Broner struck a verbal agreement (i.e., the other participant heard the agreement and submits an affidavit of that fact), Reyes could win.

That said, good money is on a settlement. Why? For one, Reyes isn’t asking for a boat-load of cash. She only requested a reasonable – (for this situation) — $30,000. Considering Broner’s bank account is about $500,000 fatter thanks to the Molina purse, there’s a  chance he’ll just settle to make this go away.

So, what’s the takeaway?

First. If you agree to a sex tape, but don’t want it online, get your partner to sign an agreement to that effect ahead of time.
