Before the story broke, Diplo was posting photos on social like everything was normal. He shared a shirtless airplane bathroom selfie where she showed off a small smirk.
Little did anyone know, Diplo's alleged victim reported him to the police in October 2020. She accuses him of taking explicit videos of her without her knowledge, passing around one of those videos without her consent, and giving her chlamydia.
The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office is reportedly considering filing criminal charges at the moment. The office confirmed they are considering bringing a case that would also include claims of invasion of privacy and intentionally giving another person a sexually transmitted disease.
“We are reviewing the referral and have no further comment at this time,” a spokesperson for the LA City Attorney’s Office revealed.
Diplo is already facing a civil lawsuit from the woman who he dated in 2019. The accuser claims the DJ pursued her when she was only 17. The two allegedly started a relationship when she was 21.
The woman claims she allowed Diplo to take her virginity. However, she claims things quickly turned dark with Diplo pressuring her to have threesomes and wanting to film her having sex.
At the time, Diplo’s lawyer said, “These latest false claims are just part of that ongoing campaign of harassment, and we will not allow them to deter us from pursuing justice against her to the fullest extent possible under the law.”
Diplo was the first to take legal action. He sued his ex-fling claiming she started to harass him after he broke things off with her. He claims the woman is a “relentless and unstable fan who manipulated herself into" his life years ago. He said he even had to sell his home after she started showing up unannounced.
Both cases are still pending in Los Angeles Superior Court.
