DIPLO fired back against the woman who accused him of leaking pics of her vagina online and filed his own restraining order against her.
TMZ reported that Diplo filed court documents on Tuesday asking a judge to sign a temporary restraining order against the women known only as, Shelly, claiming she's been posting nude photos and videos of him.
In the document, the DJ also claimed that his accuser has been incessantly harassing both him and his family.
In the filing, Diplo, whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz, claims they met in 2018 and started exchanging explicit photos and videos with each other.
The 42-year-old said he expected Shelly to keep the content private.
The DJ points out that at some time in 2020 his relationship with the woman got sour, and that's when she allegedly started posting nude images of him, him and her, as well as videos of him and other women on social media.
He claims Shelly has been posting nudes of him on her Instagram account, and then starting sending explicit videos and photos of him to his past partners – including the mother of his child.
He has now filed for a temporary restraining order in a court in Los Angeles to put an end to her leaks.
Diplo's attorney, Bryan Freedman, told TMZ, "Unfortunately, in spite of repeated requests to stop, this individual has continued to stalk and harass my client and his family for more than a year.
"As a result, we have asked the Court to grant a restraining order against her and to continue this case so that this troubling situation can be resolved once and for all," Freedman said.
The Sun reached out to Shelly's attorney Lisa Bloom for comment, but did not receive a response.
The woman was granted a temporary restraining order against Diplo last month, after she alleged the DJ "posted a photograph of her vagina online."
In November, the woman's lawyer told the Daily Beast, her client previously tweeted about how the music artist had allegedly groomed her then hired a private investigator after the pair argued.
She told the Daily Beast that he did this to allegedly "scare" her out of discussing "the disgusting details" she knew about him.
In the filing, the woman claimed it was necessary "to block him [Diplo] from distributing revenge porn designed to humiliate her and to scare other women out of coming forward."
In the filing she also accused him of allegedly filming their sex acts without her permission.
According to the Daily Beast, she tweeted: "The private investigator stated to me that he knew my address, he knew my parents address, he knew my place of work as well as my parents place to work.
"Take that as you may but most people will take that as a threat.”
As for the accusations she made of him filming their sex acts, she tweeted: "I SPECIFICALLY asked him not to & his reply was ‘f**k it. I’m recording this.'"
Following her coming forward on social media, a nude picture of the woman appeared on the social platform.
Bloom claimed that only her client and Diplo had access to that picture.
The woman and Bloom claimed in their filing they believe it was posted by someone on behalf of Diplo.
In her Twitter thread, the woman continued: "I never had the will or intention to expose Diplo being that I did not want all the years I invested into speaking & hanging out with him to go in vain….or end nasty.
"But I slowly started to realize he is a huge manipulating liar / gaslighter who PREYS young women of ALL races (to be honest) but primarily young naive women of color."
She further tweeted out: "You have NO idea how scary it is to have anxiety when my doorbell rings unexpectedly.
"When I go out feeling like I can’t post where I am. Feeling like I’m being watched. All because of the PI contacting me using method of intimidation."
At the time of the woman's filing, Diplo's lawyer responded to the New York Daily News call for comments and claimed the Old Town Road DJ has "not violated any laws."
Freedman further said in a statement: "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."
