 In the summer of 2013, an actor and singer received a message from one of her fans warning that pornographic videos of her were being distributed online. To her horror, she discovered that the videos had been online for a year and a half and had been uploaded by a bitter ex-boyfriend. Since then, she has been fighting for justice and now wants to raise awareness by sharing her story.
