If you’re trying to spice up your love life, it might not be wise to have a kinky photo session in this day and age, because, you know, the internet.

A young Russian immigrant with a student visa, Ruzilya Khusnutdinova, learned the hard way when scandalous pictures of her surfaced on an online sex escort website without her knowing. Khusnutdinova, who claims that her ex-boyfriend, Brighton Beach resident Vladimir Dranovsky, took the pictures on a romantic getaway. According to the New York Post, she is suing Dranovsky for $8 million in emotional distress, $4 million for defamation, and another $4 million for violating New York Civil Law, for a grand total of $16 million.

Dranovsky, who runs a dental practice at 2101 Bay Ridge Parkway in Bensonhurst, told the Daily News, “She’s just probably making it up because she wants to get some money.”

Besides allegedly distributing Khusnutdinova’s pictures to a sex escort website, Dranovsky has also been accused of making false reports to immigration authorities about Khisnutdinova’s immigration status, physical abuse, and for holding his ex’s passport and other immigration documents for ransom. According to courthousenews, Khusnutdinova claims that Dranovsky “was threatening her with physical harm, and that he can ‘deport’ her.”

In the matter of Khusnutdinova’s passport, Dranovsky was charged with grand larceny, but pleaded guilty to a lesser charge last February.
