Blac Chyna Will Reportedly Have Police Investigate Sex Tape Leak
"This is a criminal matter for the police to investigate," said Chyna's lawyer.
A sex tape featuring Blac Chyna was leaked online on Monday, and the reality TV star reportedly plans to have police find the person responsible.
The 1-minute, 23-second video — that shows Chyna performing oral sex on an unidentified male — was posted online by an anonymous Twitter user on Monday morning, Us Weekly reports. The account that first posted the clip was later suspended, as have other accounts that have attempted to further spread the footage.
Chyna's attorney Walter Mosley told USA Today that he and his client intend to have the leak investigated by police.
"This is a criminal matter for the police to investigate," Mosley said, later adding that it is unclear who released the footage.
"There's not enough information right now to even know what happened," Mosley told People. "An anonymous source posted a tape — could be from an ex-boyfriend, or stolen, someone texting it to someone else."
According to TMZ, the recently posted clip was recorded back in July and features Chyna's ex-boyfriend Mechie (before they broke up in August). A representative for Chyna's ex told TMZ that while Mechie is the one who shot the video, it was captured on Chyna's phone; Mechie reportedly never had his own copy of the video and wants whoever leaked it to be prosecuted.
Chyna has yet to comment on the leak, and when asked how she's handling it, Mosley responded, "She's a very strong woman and strong mother. She's handling it as you would expect someone who had a tape distributed across the world."
In an Instagram post, Mosley called for men to do better, writing, "We have to change this culture of abuse and assault against women. Today's post saddens me deeply as it is an attack not only against my client but my friend. Why do we think it's acceptable to sell, or publish, or seek revenge, or blackmail women in this way and without their consent? It's not. Men... We have to do better."
Lisa Bloom, who's represented Chyna in the past, also spoke out about the leak on Twitter, writing in one tweet, "Revenge porn -- posting explicit images without the consent of everyone in those images -- is a crime, a civil wrong, and a form of domestic abuse. It's also a way to try to slut shame women for being sexual. Girls have killed themselves over revenge porn. It's not a joke."
"Whether a woman knows she's being recorded is not the issue," she continued in another tweet. "Whether she consented to posting is. Our bodies, our choice, each and every time."
