"Are you aware how she spends her spare time on OnlyFans?"
Kobi Hussain, aged 36, of Wednesbury, received a suspended sentence following a revenge porn plot in which he sent an OnlyFans model’s explicit pictures to her family.
Wolverhampton Crown Court heard that Hussain contacted the woman after meeting online.
John O’Higgins, prosecuting, explained that the pair exchanged emails and Hussain later found that she had an OnlyFans account.
Hussain paid for nude videos and photographs of the woman but she soon feared that he was becoming obsessive.
He “fell out” with the victim after he said the explicit pictures were of “poor quality” and demanded she gave him the money back.
Hussain messaged her unsuspecting family, asking them:
“Are you aware how she spends her spare time on OnlyFans?”
He then sent two explicit videos and pictures of her stripping.
Hussain also messaged her, claiming he would come to her house and had seen her in the street.
The “intimidated” woman was also told by Hussain that he had posted her X-rated shots on porn sites, however, no evidence of this was ever found.
Mr O’Higgins said: “Throughout the period that she was in contact with this defendant, there were many occasions where she felt scared and worried and in particular, that he would be in close proximity of her as he often claimed to be.
“As she observed him to have somewhat of a short fuse and bad temper, she was unsure what he would be capable of.
“She felt unnerved that he would send her messages that would indicate that he knew where she was. He appeared to seek her undivided attention.
“She tried to block him but when she did so, he would find another way to contact her.”
Hussain also lied to her friends that she was HIV positive, leaving her feeling “humiliated”.
He admitted to police that he used fake accounts to contact his victim and her loved ones to “get back at her”.
On August 20, 2020, Hussain admitted disclosing private sexual photographs and film with intent to cause distress.
Shital Maher, defending, said: “To say that he has really let himself down by committing this offence is an understatement.
“He looks back with embarrassment and shame.”
The court heard that Hussain was jailed for eight years for conspiracy to supply cocaine in February 2016.
Judge Michael Chambers QC said:
“Parliament has indicted that anyone who sends intimate or sexual images, whether it be from a former relationship or in other circumstances, intending to cause distress or harm, commits a serious offence.
“You chose to purchase such images and pay her for them but then it appears you became obsessed with her, sending her gifts and paying her unwanted attention.
“She sought to stop the communication but you continued.”
Hussain received a 10-month prison sentence, suspended for two years. He was ordered to pay £340 in costs.
Hussain also received a restraining order, banning him from contacting the victim.
