The Gram­my Award-win­ning DJ Dip­lo, whose real name is Thomas Pentz, has been sued by a New York-based woman who claims he dis­trib­uted sex­u­al­ly explic­it pho­tos and videos of her dur­ing their alleged sev­en-year relationship.

Accord­ing to the law­suit, the anony­mous accuser says Dip­lo record­ed them hav­ing sex on sev­er­al occa­sions with­out her per­mis­sion between 2018 and 2023. She fur­ther alleges that he then “dis­closed and/or dis­trib­uted the images and videos to third par­ties through text mes­sag­ing and Snapchat.”

The woman claims she began com­mu­ni­cat­ing with Dip­lo via Snapchat when she was 21 in April 2016, and they began a sex­u­al rela­tion­ship that June. Dur­ing their rela­tion­ship, which alleged­ly last­ed until Octo­ber 2023, she says she gave him per­mis­sion to record them hav­ing sex on some occa­sions, but she “nev­er gave him per­mis­sion to dis­trib­ute those images and videos to third par­ties and reit­er­at­ed that he was not to record them with­out her explic­it consent.”

In Novem­ber, the accuser says she was con­tact­ed by a third par­ty who was in pos­ses­sion of “inti­mate mate­r­i­al” fea­tur­ing the pair hav­ing sex, with footage includ­ing the accuser’s “gen­i­tals, but­tocks, and face.” She sub­se­quent­ly filed a police report, and an arrest war­rant for Dip­lo was issued short­ly after.

Diplo’s attor­ney, Bryan Freed­man, has pre­vi­ous­ly defend­ed the artist against sim­i­lar alle­ga­tions of revenge porn, claim­ing the accuser in a pre­vi­ous case had dis­trib­uted the explic­it mate­r­i­al her­self. How­ev­er, the lat­est law­suit against Dip­lo alleges a “severe abuse of pow­er and a bla­tant dis­re­gard for human dig­ni­ty” by the musician.
