A WOMAN accusing Diplo of revenge porn claims he "groomed" her at age 17 before he "posted a photograph of her vagina online," bombshell court documents show.

The alleged victim, known only as Shelly to protect her privacy, applied for a restraining order against the star this week, whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz. Diplo has strongly denied the accusations through his lawyer.

She claims court action was necessary "to block him from distributing revenge porn designed to humiliate her and to scare other women out of coming forward."

The woman alleges he shared a picture of her vagina to "330 million Twitter users" using an anonymous account, which led to her being an "emotional wreck and in great distress and fear."

In new court documents obtained by The Sun, filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, she says: "I was shocked, embarrassed and ashamed.

"After seeing my vagina shared with 330 million Twitter users, I was an emotional wreck and in great distress and fear, according to her petition. 

"I had to see a psychologist and psychiatrist as a result of my emotional distress."

According to the docs, Shelly is also accusing him of allegedly filming their sex acts without her permission.


Court filings claim she was 17 and he was 36 when they first met in the summer of 2014, after he reached out to her on Twitter and they exchanged phone numbers and Snapchat usernames.

"Due to the age gap, I was hesitant to meet Respondent and we did not meet in person until in or about March of 5 2018," she alleges in the papers.

She claims in her petition that she and Diplo "regularly exchanged sexually explicit photos, videos and messages" and she trusted him, but was "caught off guard and shocked" when he sent her unsolicited videos of him engaging in sex with other women around October 2018.

"I sternly told Respondent that I did not want him to ever record us engaging in sexual activities," she says in the documents filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court.

"I lost my virginity to Respondent on or about April 30, 2019. I felt pressured by Respondent to have sex with him," the docs say.

"I wanted to please him because he frequently taunted me that he was famous and many women wanted him.

"At the time, I believed it was the right decision to share this special and intimate moment with Respondent because I trusted him.

"I believed he would respect my privacy and my wishes to keep our sexual photos and videos confidential."

The woman claims they drifted apart around April this year when Diplo reached out to her regarding someone messaging his child’s mother about the details of their relationship.

She denied having anything to do with the message, but says around June a private investigator contacted her on the DJ's behalf, according to court docs.

"I felt threatened and intimidated by the private investigator because the investigator told me that he knew where I lived and where my family lived," she alleged.

"Respondent used this private investigator to scare me into remaining silent about our relationship and my experiences with him."

Diplo's attorney, Bryan Freedman, strongly denied all of the claims in a statement to Billboard.

"Unfortunately, this individual has been harassing my client and his family for more than a year and has repeatedly refused to stop doing so," he said.


"To be clear, in no way has my client violated any law.

"In fact, he has repeatedly made it clear that he wants nothing whatsoever to do with this person – and simply needs her ongoing harassment of his family to end."

Shelly's lawyer, Lisa Bloom, confirmed she had been contacted by "several" other women with similar claims.

In a statement, the leading victims' lawyer said: "I am proud to represent a young woman who has serious misconduct allegations against musical artist Diplo. We have reviewed her allegations, spoken to several other women, and find her to be credible. Our client chooses to remain anonymous.


"Our client alleges that she had a prior intimate relationship with Diplo. She recently said on Twitter that Diplo filmed her having sex without her permission and that he preys on young woman. Other women began reaching out to her with their own stories about him.

"After that, a new Twitter account posted a screen recording of the text message thread between Diplo and our client, which included a photo of her genitals, and sent the same screen recording to people who expressed support for her," Bloom said, referring to claims included in the court docs.

"We believe that act of revenge porn was done to frighten and intimidate our client and other women from coming forward. That photo, she alleges, was only in the possession of two people: herself and Diplo."

She added: "We are pleased to announce that by an order dated November 16, 2020, the Court ordered our requests 'all granted' and the restraining order issued.

"In fact, the Court went even further [temporarily] banning Diplo from distributing explicit images of our client without 'express written permission' from her or from the court, and that he 'shall identify and remove any such images previously posted or distributed.'"
