A restraining order is being sought against Diplo by a woman who claims the producer distributed revenge pornography images of her, The Daily Beast reports. Online records, viewed by Pitchfork, show that a request for a restraining order has been filed against Diplo in the Los Angeles County Superior Court on November 16.

The woman is being represented by high-profile attorney Lisa Bloom. When reached by Pitchfork, a representative for the Bloom Firm shared the following statement from Lisa Bloom:

I am proud to represent a young woman with serious allegations of misconduct against Diplo. We have reviewed her claims, and spoken to several other women. We find her to be credible and brave. We recently filed for a restraining order to prevent Diplo or anyone associated with him from distributing revenge porn images of my client, which is illegal and often done to discourage accusers from coming forward.

When contacted by Pitchfork, Diplo’s attorney Bryan J. Freedman stated:

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