Since it was announced in August that YouTube influencer Logan Paul was fighting MMA fighter Dillon Danis in a boxing match, his opponent has been relentlessly attacking Paul’s fiancée Nina Agdal on social media.
Now the supermodel has reacted.
Agdal filed a lawsuit and temporary restraining order against Danis on Wednesday, accusing him of spearheading “a relentless, ongoing campaign of online harassment and bullying against her,” which included the “unlawful publication of non-consensual, sexually explicit photographs.” from her on the Internet without her consent”.
The lawsuit, seen by The Times, was filed in U.S. District Court in Newark, New Jersey. She accuses Danis of two counts of disclosing intimate images and one count of invasion of privacy related to posts on his social media accounts X (formerly known as Twitter) And Instagram.
“Although there are many images of Plaintiff in the public domain due to her professional success and associated media attention, not all of the content Danis used in his posts about Plaintiff was publicly available prior to his posts,” the lawsuit reads.
One such case, according to the lawsuit, involves a “sexually explicit photograph” of Agdal that was taken without her consent during “a romantic encounter Plaintiff had with a non-party more than a decade ago.” The lawsuit claims that Danis only deleted the photo from his account as a promoter misfit boxes threatened to cancel his fight on October 14th against Paul in Manchester, England.
The lawsuit also alleges a crime related to a video Danis posted of Agdal last month that remains on his timeline:
“Although Plaintiff recorded this video herself more than six years ago, she never sent this private video recording to anyone, and it was stored deep in her Snapchat archive, suggesting that Danis hacked Plaintiff’s personal account or that had received someone’s private video had done it.”
Danis, a training partner of UFC star Conor McGregor, is 2-0 in the Bellator welterweight division and will be making his boxing debut. Paul, who is 0-1-2 as a boxer, will return to the ring for the first time in more than two years after focusing on his career as a WWE wrestler.
Following the announcement of their upcoming fight on August 8, an online feud quickly erupted between the fighters. Agdal, who appeared on the 50th anniversary cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue in 2014, was caught in the crossfire.
“Although Plaintiff never met, spoke to, or interacted with Danis, Danis nonetheless made Plaintiff the primary target of his attacks against Paul,” the lawsuit states. “Danis used his social media accounts to make hundreds of crude posts about the plaintiff.”
The lawsuit further alleges that Danis appeared more than 250 times on “
Danis has responded to the lawsuit with several social media posts, indicating that he “will not stop” his online activity regarding Agdal and Paul.
“Nina Adgel has filed a massive lawsuit against me” Danis tweeted Wednesday. “She has a restraining order against me and is asking for a prison sentence, so the fight is in jeopardy if I’m in prison. “This is actually wild, but I won’t stop, the system is getting me. Logan Paul is a dead man walking.”
Paul laughed about Danis trolling his fiancé during an appearance on the TV series “Flagrant” podcast (Warning: explicit language) Late last month.
“I know who I am, I know who my girl is, I know we love each other,” Paul said. “Some damn internet troll posing as a fighter isn’t going to get in the way.”
Agdal is seeking at least $150,000 in damages per violation of each law, as well as an injunction to prevent Danis from “continuing to disclose sexually explicit photographs of Plaintiff without her consent” and disclosing materials about Agdal that were not intended to be disclosed shared publicly.
