A Manhattan woman has revealed that she suffered from years of abuse at the hands of a vindictive and manipulative former boyfriend who decided to send revenge porn to her parents and monitored work email as he was convinced that she was cheating on him, according to a lawsuit. 

Prior to the lawsuit filed on Wednesday, earlier this month, the woman filed for an order of protection against the man and filed a police report against him for aggravated harassment, which remains open, according to the NYPD.

The woman -- only identified as AS -- in the Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit filed revealed that her on and off relationship with the wealthy Murray Hill investor -- identified as SJ -- started in 2015 after the pair met on Facebook.

When the woman had first met SJ she was made to believe that he was "romantic, thoughtful, bright, and extraordinarily wealthy," as per the lawsuit.

The woman and her partner stayed together at a luxury building located on East 34th Street and would often go on "extravagant vacations, dined at exclusive restaurants around the city, and received private showings of multi-million-dollar penthouse apartments," the suit added.

The woman was under the impression that she had "met someone wonderful until S.J began showing his true colors."

He would physically abuse the woman, accused her of using crack to her supervisors at work, repeatedly threatened her and also accused her of stealing from him to the police.

As per the police report filed by the woman, her former boyfriend was identified as 25-year-old Siddharth Jha, a managing director at a real estate investment firm called Pier 67 Capital Partners, and who was convinced that the woman was cheating on him.

After years of the abusive relationship, the woman finally moved out of their shared home in May and cut off communication with the man. According to the lawsuit, he called her 16 times from blocked numbers and “began spoofing” her dad’s phone in order to trick him into picking up.

As a result of his insecurity, on May 26, he emailed naked photos and videos of the woman to her father and also sent the email to her workplace. He also sent it to the woman's mother and sent the woman a threatening text which read, "Your family hasn’t seen the worse yet. I’m telling you. You’re messing with the wrong person."

When the woman confronted SJ about exposing the pictures and asked why he did it, he attempted to justify his actions and said, "No it’s not revenge porn. First of all, you assigned your rights to those photos to me. I’m willing to go to court to protect my right."

He also claimed that New York and Washington state "do not have revenge porn laws," before adding, "I have little mercy for your issues. Little. How the f—k dare you manipulate me and cheat so much? F-ck you motherf—ker."

Earlier this year, Albany lawmakers had passed legislation which stated it would make revenge porn a crime punishable by up to a year in jail though it has not yet been signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A lawyer for the woman, Cali Madia shared with New York Post, "The cruelties this young man inflicted on his girlfriend during their relationship were endless. He was retaliatory and abusive — physically, financially and legally. But the actions he committed after their breakup show someone who is deeply unhinged and willing to do anything to devastate his ex-girlfriend." 

Madia also shared that S.J had impersonated an attorney to have the woman's Instagram account deactivated and said, "This man’s desire for revenge is insatiable. This equally spoiled and deranged young man is apparently not used to being told 'no',". 

Jha’s lawyer, Jeremy Saland, said the woman “became aware she was the subject of a grand larceny investigation filed by Mr. Jha with the NYPD, [she] commenced a coordinated defensive strike in the civil court and press.”

“Not only does Mr. Jha look forward to refuting the allegations, he welcomes the opportunity to share demonstrable evidence including signed documentation that goes to the heart of [the plaintiff’s] credibility and claims,” Saland added.
