Chrissy Chambers wins ‘revenge porn’ settlement

Category: News

Settlement for 'substantial damages' in first reported civil action for image-based sexual abuse


Chrissy Chambers has settled an action in breach of confidence and misuse of private information for ‘substantial damages’ arising out of the non-consensual uploading of sexual videos without her consent to the website Redtube.com. The ex-boyfriend responsible, who has been anonymised as DCR for legal reasons, accepted liability and also agreed to pay Ms Chambers’ legal costs, as well as assigning her the copyright in the videos.

Ms Chambers is an actress & singer best-known for a popular YouTube channel featuring her and her partner Bria Kam. She has campaigned against image-based sexual abuse (often called ‘revenge porn’) and crowd-funded this legal action as a way of raising awareness.

After a statement in open court before Sir David Eady in Court 13 of the Royal Courts of Justice, Ms Chambers and Ms Kam also announced their engagement.

Chrissy Chambers was represented by Alexandra Marzec and Greg Callus, instructed by McAllister Olivarius (http://www.mcolaw.com).
