Mischa Barton’s lawyer is threatening to file a revenge porn lawsuit on her behalf after it was revealed a sex tape featuring the actress is being shopped.

On Monday, the Daily Mail claimed there is a pornographic video featuring a woman said to be Barton having a sex with a male partner. The British tabloid quoted a “Hollywood sex-tape broker” as saying a number of porn companies are interested in buying the footage, which supposedly has an asking price of $500,000. But the actress’ attorney is vowing to sue if the explicit material is ever made public.

“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,” Lisa Bloom says in a statement obtained by Gossip Cop. “There’s a name for this disgusting conduct: Revenge pornography.”

Bloom continues, “Revenge pornography is a form of sexual assault, and it is also a crime and a civil wrong in California. And we still not stand for it.” The lawyer goes on, “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.”

Bloom, who says she’s “very proud” to represent Barton as she “courageously [stands] up for her rights,” concludes with the warning, “You proceed at your peril.” The “O.C.” star herself has not publicly commented. The scandalous legal issue comes less than two months after Barton said she was drugged, leading to her emergency hospitalization. She later crashed a U-Haul.
