UCF Student Sues Her Ex-Boyfriend & Fraternity For “Revenge Porn”

Kathryn Novak, a Univesity of Central Florida student from Arizona, filed a federal lawsuit on Thursday, June 14, against her former boyfriend and four of his fraternity brothers. Novak accuses them of sharing a videotape of the couple having sex without her consent.

According to Novak, her former boyfriend, Brandon Simpson, filmed one of their sexual encounters and shared it with his fraternity brothers. She claims that the video was shown at a chapter house meeting and has since been seen by ‘more than 200 people’.

The lawsuit states that five men — all members of Sigma Delta Chi at UCF — shared and viewed nude videos and photos of her without her permission last year. The fraternity itself is also named in the suit.

The defendants are accused of invasion of privacy, infliction of emotional distress and negligence.

The lawsuit says members of the fraternity also posted nude imagery of their “sexual conquests” to the Facebook page — all without the women’s consent. Novak’s attorney, Michael Avenatti — better known as the lawyer for adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had an affair with President Donald Trump — said in a phone interview from California that there are more victims in the case. “We expect there to be numerous victims at this time — certainly into the double digits,” he said.

The complaint, filed in United States District Court for the the Middle District of Florida in Orlando, states that Novak and Simpson saw each other twice a month. In October of last year, the suit alleges, he recorded video of a sexual encounter with her and quickly distributed it to four fraternity brothers, Jacob Pelkey, Andre Perales, Jonathan Landrum and Matt Farley.

Simpson and the others eventually passed it along to a wider fraternity audience for viewing at chapter meetings, the suit alleges. The video ended up on a “secret” Facebook page they called the Dog Pound, it says, along with erotic pictures of Novak that she had sent to her boyfriend with the understanding that he would not let others see them.

The court filing lists costs and interest in excess of $75,000.

Novak is being represented by Michael Avennatti, the same lawyer that represents Stormy Daniels in her case against President Trump.
