A fitness model whose private photographs were leaked online in a revenge porn attack has hit out at her tormentor.
The woman, who did not want to be named, told the Mercury she was coming to terms with the death of her mother in a car crash, as well as the death of her ex-boyfriend Simon Andrews, a motorbike racer killed on the track in 2014.
The woman, who lives in Cheshunt, lost modelling work after ex-lover Christopher Spearman shared sexual images of her on social media.
The woman said Spearman, a 26-year-old fitness fanatic who has appeared on the cover of For Men magazine, was “manipulative” and bombarded her with calls after their breakup.
“I was still trying to come to terms with mum’s death and Simon’s,” said the model, who is in her 20s.
“He sent images to friends and family and anyone I had been in contact with. It lost me a year’s work on a film and some boxing contracts I had.”
The images were shared on fake Twitter accounts in September, and the victim said callous Spearman called her to tell her what he had done.
“He posted one lot of photos on Twitter and then called me five minutes later and told me he had done it,” she told the Mercury.
“He kind of laughed about it. It was up for at least an hour.
“Then the next day or two it got posted again and sent to friends and fans and followers I had.”
The model said Spearman, who is studying to be a doctor and is listed as a director of U-Turn Clothing, would message her asking to get back together.
She said: “I told him I didn’t want anything to do with him and then he got really nasty. He said he had nothing to lose.
“I thought, I have nothing to lose, I lost my family. I have nothing left.”
She added: “He was really manipulative. When Simon died, my mum said to him, ‘Promise me you’ll look after her’. So he would use that against me.”
Spearman, of Addison Gardens, London, pleaded guilty to two counts of sharing private sexual images when he appeared at Stevenage Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.
He was given two concurrent 12-week prison sentences, suspended for 18 months, and ordered to pay £465 in fines and court costs.… Read the rest
