JWOWW's court bid to prevent naked photos of herself being sold to the media is nothing more than a publicity stunt, according to lawyer representing the reality star's ex boyfriend and manager.

Speaking exclusively to, attorney Jeffery Baum -- who acts for Tom Lippolis in a breach of contact lawsuit -- said Jenni Farley, aka JWOWW, was attempting to play the victim.

"She is talking about naked photos for publicity and to draw attention to herself and play the victim," Baum told

"I never once mentioned naked pictures in my pleadings, she is trying to get people's appetites wet by using the photos and then make sure no one can get them.

"Once everyone wants to see them, she can pose somewhere and stick the money in her own pocket."

On Wednesday, a New York judge ruled that Lippoli has no legal right to distribute the raunchy pictures.

Baum said: "She is declaring some type of victory here, but that's hollow! It's nothing!

"She didn't win anything. All she did was get an order temporarily restraining Tom from selling naked pictures which he never intended to sell anyway."

"She has known about these pictures all along and she claims someone told her he was going to sell them... but really what is going on is, she owes money to my client.

"He got her set up for all her deals, appearances, tanning lotion, clothing line, etc. and she was supposed to pay him, he was her manager -- it's not free.

"We are not looking for a pay day here, this money is for work he did for her."

Baum said JWOWW was a master at "disseminating information" to play the victim's card, but added "Tom is the real victim, because he didn't get paid."

"She wants to say, 'Look, he is a horrible guy who took naked pictures of me when I didn't know' and in actual fact, he worked and did everything for her," the lawyer said.

"When he gets awarded the money, she's not going to be in a position to declare victory, because she is not going to be victorious."
