Comedian Chris D’Elia is Accused of Soliciting Pornographic Pictures from a Teenager

A lawsuit is filed against comedian Chris D’Elia for allegedly
soliciting naked pictures from a 17-year-old girl, named Doe.

According to the charges raised against him in federal court
in Los Angeles, D’Elia currently possesses over 100 nude pictures and explicit videos
from a teenage girl, which he forcefully received from her over the course of
several months until 2017.

The complaint also stated that the comedian forced the girl to
show up to one of his shows and have sexual intercourse with her. He inquired
about her age while having sex, to which she revealed that she is a high-school
goer. Even after knowing well about her age, he continued with the deed and
responded that her tender age makes her even “hotter.”

Later on, the suit alleges that the 40-year-old comedian
forced her to send explicit pictures. The lawsuit also accuses D’Elia for
emotionally manipulating the teenager, giving her attention when she agreed to
his demands, but threatening to break up with her if she refused.

According to the lawsuit, the girl met D’Elia after she
contacted him over Instagram and he invited her to one of his comedy shows.
After exchanging a few texts, D’Elia asked for a nude picture and continued to
ask for more even before meeting her in-person.

The girl first met the comedian in-person in his hotel room,
where he “instructed Ms. Doe to get on the floor, take off his shoes and pants,
and give him oral sex” and “approximately ten minutes after she arrived at his
hotel room, Defendant D’Elia had sex with Ms. Doe,” according to the suit.

The lawsuit was filed against D’Elia for violating federal
child pornography and child sexual exploitation statutes.

It’s not the first time D’Elia has been accused of demanding
explicit pictures. Last year in June, the 40-year-old artist was accused of
seeking naked photos from teenagers after starring in the second season of
popular Netflix drama “You.” He played the character of a podophilic comedian who sexually
abuses teenagers. Oh, the irony!

Seems like the artist is no different from his on-screen character.

After watching his show, Doe “sent him an email expressing that
she had been too young for what he had done to her and that she would never be
in touch with him again,” as per the complaint.

While responding to those allegations at that time, D’Elia
said he “never knowingly pursued any underage women at any point.” But he also
apologized to anyone he may have offended, admitting that he had sometime got
caught up in his own lifestyle.

Just recently, he uploaded a YouTube video claiming that “I do
have a problem.” He shared with his fans that he is in the path to recovery and
of becoming a better role model to his son.

Doe is seeking a “compensatory, liquidated and punitive
damage” through a trial by jury.

After the allegation raised against him on Sunday, a
spokesperson for D’Elia said, “Chris denied these allegations and will
vigorously defend against them in court.”

After being accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women
online, CAA dropped the artist as a client and Netflix decided to scrap the
unscripted show that was set to co-star D’Elia. Following his tumultuous
reputation in the media, Tig Notaro has had no choice but to replace him in Zack Synder’s zombie
movie “Army of the Dead.”
