me and my girlfriend were having sex one day and I stupidly decided to record it through phone. now the video is all deleted and everything but every time when I try to break up with her she threatens me by saying that I recorded without her permission and will sue me for it and put me in the jail. It is a wrong thing to do and I recognize that very well so I can't talk back of course but at the same time i'm scared of the punishment which stops me from breaking up with her. I never showed it or upload it to anywhere but can she still put me In trouble for it? I no longer have it but she has it to threaten me. i regret so much because i really wanna be away from her.
Your girlfriend is emotionally blackmailing you. Next time she threatens to sue you call her bluff and tell her to hit the road. She has no damages if you did not distribute the video to anyone or put it on the internet. She can't put you in jail because only the police can make an arrest. Furthermore, she has no evidence of criminality because it is her word versus yours and the cops will simply tell her tough luck. She sounds emotionally unstable so I would end this relationship. But you may have to seek a restraining order if she does not take the hint and becomes threatening or vandalizes your car or residence. Good luck.
