Blac Chyna's Ex-Boyfriend Mechie Denies Leaking Sex Tape
Mechie reportedly claims he was the one who recorded the video last July, but that it was captured on Chyna's phone
A rep for Mechie, whom Chyna dated last summer, told TMZ that the explicit video showing Chyna, 29, engaging in oral sex with an unidentified man was shot in July. Mechie reportedly claims he was the one who recorded the video, but that it was captured on Chyna’s phone.
Mechie also insists he never had his own copy of the video and has no idea how it was leaked, according to the outlet.
The video began circulating on Twitter on Monday morning. Hours later, Chyna’s lawyer Lisa Bloom jumped to her defense.
“Revenge porn — posting explicit images without the consent of everyone in those images — is a crime, a civil wrong, and a form of domestic abuse,” she tweeted. “It’s also a way to try to slut shame women for being sexual. Girls have killed themselves over revenge porn. It’s not a joke.”
“Whether a woman knows she’s being recorded is not the issue,” she continued. “Whether she consented to posting is. Our bodies, our choice, each and every time.”
“It’s tough, she’s upset,” he said. “This is some sick man, I’m sure, who thought this would be funny or cool. It’s going to take a while to get to the bottom of it. She’s trying to be in good spirits. She’s focused on running the business. But we’re tired of it.”

“There’s not enough information right now to even know what happened,” he explained. “An anonymous source posted a tape — could be from an ex-boyfriend, or stolen, someone texting it to someone else. It’s upsetting and troubling.”
“This is a job for the police,” he continued. “Years ago, this would have been a big deal. But now it’s not really something new, especially since her ex [Kardashian] just posted something similar a few months ago. But it’s still unfortunate.”
