Mischa Barton was spotted on a bikini photo shoot shortly after arming herself with a lawyer to combat an alleged sex tape being shopped around to porn websites — get the details.
Revenge porn scandal? No problem! At least it seems to be no problem for troubled starlet Mischa Barton.
The 31-year-old struck sultry poses on set of a 138 Water Commercial with Fashion Photographer Malachi Banales in Malibu.
Meanwhile, Barton's lawyer Lisa Bloom issued a statement on Tuesday morning regarding the sex tape scandal: "I am very proud to represent actress Mischa Barton, who is courageously standing up for her rights. It hasbeen reported that naked or sexually explicit images of Ms. Barton are being 'shopped around.' Ms. Barton does not consent to any disclosure of any such images She believes that she was recorded without her consent by someone she was seeing at the time. There’s a name for this disgusting conduct: revenge pornography. Revenge pornography is a form of sexual assault, and it is also a crime and a civil wrong in California. And we will not stand for it."
"I have a message for anyone who attempts to traffic in these photos or videos of Ms. Barton: we will find you, and we will come after you. We will fully prosecute you under every available criminal and civil law. You proceed at your peril," Bloom added.
The scandal comes just days after Barton was rushed to the hospital for a mental evaluation after cops were called to her home last month.
As reported, the star was reportedly spotted in her backyard hanging over the fence, babbling about her mother and spitting out "incoherent statements." Her concerned neighbors called 9-1-1 and the Sheriff’s deputies and firefighters responded. The neighbors reported it was a jumper or a possible overdose.
Later, Barton alleged that someone had slipped her the drug GBH, telling PEOPLE, "On the evening of the 25th, I went out with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday. While having drinks, I realized that something was not right as my behavior was becoming erratic and continued to intensify over the next several hours."
