Ex Won't Take Pics Off Internet

"Ex Won't Take My Pics Down After the Breakup"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

It's been a good 6 months since I broke up with my ex but I couldn't afford to move out until this past December. He had a public pic of us up as a couple which I asked him to take down before I moved out. He finally took it down in January. Now I look on the Internet and he has a business website up with pics of me on it. Only a couple of pics of him and the rest are of me. No pics of anyone else. He rebounded with someone after I broke up with him and was dating people "casually." Before I left he told me he didn't love this person, wouldn't bring her to the house until I moved and was seeing not only her but other people, but did it to try and get over me. I believe that's actually true, that he was using this person to make me jealous so I would stay. I could not forgive him because she was very jealous of me and did horrible things. Actually, so did he.

We are not in contact and though I'm not completely over everything I will not go back to him due to the way things ended. I'm pretty sure he wanted me back and my family and friends think so too. Someone close thought it was sad but thought I should sue him to take the pics down because I asked him months ago and he didn't. I'm not going to do that but I just think it's weird. I'm curious to know what does it do for him to have these pics up for people to see when we are not together?

Yeah, I have to go with everyone else here. There's nothing weird about not wanting to be misrepresented. There are still pictures I'm tagged in on FB with my ex that I keep asking a friend to remove, they drive me crazy. I would tell him that you don't want to take legal action but will be forced to if he will not comply with your wishes.

Similar thing happened to me with my ex gf. Still 3 months after break up, she still have my and our pictures all over her facebook. I told her severally, she still didn't remove but be made it private that nobody would see (she told him). Since your case has entered into business, mehn this guy has to pay or take it down peacefully. I'm a model and i know it would pay like using those pictures there especially on the internet. If you don't want to sue him, leave him a message to take the pictures down and give him a serious warning that any further utilization of your pictures for any purpose without your permission would be a big court war between you both.

I have to agree. It doesn't matter why he's doing what he's doing, but if he's using your image to make money, then you have a right to compensation, just like any model. Speak to a lawyer, or community counselor about your rights. He may have given you an opening here. However, if you do this, let the lawyer talk. I would suspect he is hoping for more contact with you. You don't have to talk to him to resolve this, and I think it's resolvable.

listen you are no more in a relationship with him. and the point is he is using your picture in his business. you are not a part of his business. so !!!!!! tell him about that and take appropriate action.

If he is using your pix for his business, you should have a right to compensation. Ask a lawyer and sue to teach him some respect for others' wishes.
