A sex tape of former “O.C.” star Mischa Barton is reportedly being shopped around to porn companies, according to DailyMail.com.

Kevin Blatt, a sex-tape broker, told the publication, "The tape is being shopped around porn valley, the asking price is $500,000.”

In response to the rumors, her lawyer Lisa Bloom said in a statement to “Extra” on Tuesday morning, “It has been reported that naked or sexually explicit images of Ms. Barton are being ‘shopped around.’ Ms. Barton does not consent to any disclosure of any such images. She believes that she was recorded without her consent by someone she was seeing at the time.”

“There’s a name for this disgusting conduct: revenge pornography. Revenge pornography is a form of sexual assault, and it is also a civil wrong in California. And we will not stand for it,” she went on. “I have a message for anyone who attempts to traffic in these photos or videos of Ms. Barton: we will find you, and we will come after you. We will fully prosecute you under every available criminal or civil law.”

A source close to Barton shared with DailyMail.com, "This is the last thing Mischa needs. Her name has been dragged through the mud enough times, she doesn't need a sex scandal right now.”

The sex-tape rumors are on the heels of Mischa’s hospitalization in January. She claimed her bizarre behavior was the result of being drugged while enjoying a night out with friends.
