Cocktail Waitress Lands Revenge Porn Uppercut on Boxer

revenge porn laws update
Boxer Adrien “The Problem” Broner got himself caught up in a revenge porn lawsuit.

It looks like boxer Adrien “The Problem” Broner can add revenge porn to his already impressive list of – shall we say – ego-fueled displays of pugnacious masculinity. A Nevada waitress and a sex tape anchor 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 on the promise that the tape remain secret. She never, however, got Broner to sign anything to that effect.

So what did Broner do? Oh, he posted the threesome online for all his fans to see. Now, Reyes is suing and the other woman is staying very quiet (though, she may not be able to stay sidelined if she’s subpoenaed). Reyes contends that the unauthorized release of the tape “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 Tapes Leads To Revenge Porn Lawsuit

Reyes threw down a barrel of torts in her sports defamation / revenge porn 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 somehow prove she and Broner struck a verbal agreement (i.e., the other participant heard the agreement and submits an affidavit of that fact, or declares such in a deposition), then Reyes will most probably emerge victorious in this revenge porn legal bout.

That said, good money is on it settling this suit out of court. 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 good chance he’ll just settle to make this go away.

So, what can we take away from this sports defamation / revenge porn case?

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

On the flip side, if your partner makes you sign a privacy agreement before bumping uglies on camera, and you violate it, prepare to be sued – and lose!
