Music producer Diplo, whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz, has been sued for the unlawful dissemination of explicit content. An unnamed woman, referred to as Jane Doe in the lawsuit, filed the legal action in California on Thursday, alleging that Diplo distributed intimate images and videos of her without her consent.

Jane Doe claims she began an intimate relationship with Diplo in June 2016, which continued until October 2023. In November 2023, she discovered that Diplo, 45, had shared explicit images and videos of their sexual interactions without her permission.

“Tragically, this is not the first time the defendant has shamed and violated a woman by disseminating intimate images without her consent,” said the woman’s legal representative, Helene Weiss, in a statement shared with Variety. “Diplo’s alleged illicit pattern of behavior illustrates the harm he’s caused Jane Doe, and other young women just like her. Our client deserves justice, and she’s hopeful that this litigation may serve as a catalyst in ending the defendant’s repeated victimization of women once and for all.”

Another lawyer representing Jane Doe, Micha Liberty, praised her client’s courage in coming forward. “Revenge pornography is an abhorrent violation of privacy and trust, inflicting profound emotional trauma on victims like Jane Doe,” Liberty told Variety. “Jane Doe’s bravery in speaking out against this injustice is a powerful reminder of the need for systemic change to support and safeguard all survivors of such violations.”

The lawsuit underscores the serious and ongoing issue of non-consensual dissemination of intimate images, highlighting the need for legal and social measures to protect victims and hold perpetrators accountable.
