A doctored image of Jenny ‘Sushe’ Ravalo and Kubrat Pulev from a previous interview has gone viral on social media.
The photo, taken on the day before a kissing incident took place sparking legal action, has been altered to show Sushe in a compromising position.
In the original, Sushe has her hand on Pulev’s stomach as the pair pose for a snap. In the second, clearly photoshopped, Sushe has her hand lowered over Pulev’s crotch.
The still has since sparked a further barrage of abuse towards Sushe.
On Thursday, Sushe and her lawyer Gloria Allred outlined plans to launch legal action against Pulev to hold him accountable for his actions.
A stolen kiss at the end of an interview on Saturday night was followed by the Bulgarian groping her buttocks, according to Sushe.
Pulev is yet to respond to the allegations.
Speaking at a press conference, Sushe revealed her disappointment at Pulev’s actions.
“What he did to me was disgusting. I felt humiliated. No woman should be treated this way,” Sushe stated.
“Mr. Pulev and I were not friends and we were not in a romantic relationship. He had no right to kiss me.
“I contacted Gloria Allred because I felt that Ms. Allred could help me impose consequences on Mr. Pulev for what he did to me.
“I never had this happen to me before and I never want it to happen again. A man should ask a woman before he kisses her.
“That did not happen in this encounter with Mr. Pulev and that is why I’m speaking out today,” she added.
A previous response to the original kiss by Pulev attempted to brush off the seriousness of the incident.
Pulev had said: “The reporter, Jenny, is actually a friend of mine. And after the interview, I was so elated, I gave her a kiss,” he explained.
“Later that night, she joined me and my other friends at my post-fight celebration. On the video, after our kiss, we both laughed about it and thanked each other.
“There really is nothing more to this,” he protested.
Since then, Pulev’s only interaction on social media was to post a video of his victory over Bogdan Dinu with the words ‘Bulgarian Power’.
