Diplo Says Revenge Porn Accuser is an Obsessed Stalker

Instagram / Diplo

Diplo will be in court soon and not just to change his name to something less stupid than Diplo (although he should totally see if the judge can squeeze that one in while he’s there).

According to The Daily Beast, the music producer is accused of distributing revenge porn to keep her from “sharing the disgusting secrets” she knows about him

After her Twitter thread, which was posted amid claims that Diplo was grooming 19-year-old Quenlin Blackwell (which is impossible, you can’t groom an adult) someone posted a naked picture of Shelly and she claims it was Diplo.

Her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, said the judge granted the restraining order.

Most of what Diplo is accused of doing is dating young women of legal age, which isn’t illegal, hence “legal age.”

For his part, Diplo claims the woman who asked for the restraining order is an obsessed stalker. He gave the following statement through his attorney.

Unfortunately, this individual has been harassing my client and his family for more than a year and has repeatedly refused to stop doing so. To be clear, in no way has my client violated any law. In fact, he has repeatedly made it clear that he wants nothing whatsoever to do with this person—and simply needs her ongoing harassment of his family to end.

I don’t really have an opinion on this one without seeing a lot more evidence. Revenge porn is wrong but it’s probably protected by the first amendment, every revenge porn law the Supreme Court has heard has been thrown out. We also don’t know Diplo is the person who posted the naked pictures of this woman in the first place. And if you’ll notice, Shelly didn’t actually make any solid allegations of misconduct against Diplo, she just said he hired a private investigator to keep her from making them.

The only thing I’m sure of is that a man in his 40s shouldn’t answer to Diplo.

every revenge porn law the Supreme Court has heard has been thrown out.” This is false. The US Supreme Court has yet to hear a single revenge porn case. Results are mixed where state supreme courts have heard First Amendment challenges.
