    Teairra Mari arrives for VH1's Hip Hop Honors: The 90's Game Changers at Paramount Studios on Sept. 17, 2017 in Hollywood, California. After sexually explicit photos of the singer surfaced online, Mari says she'll seek justice.

    "Love & Hip Hop" star Teairra Mari says she'll be in pursuit of justice after intimate photos of her surfaced online.

    The 30-year-old posted on social media that someone who she loved and trusted compromised her social media and posted the images, which she described as "private and sacred." She says revenge porn is a crime in California.

    The act of posting sexually explicit photos of former sex partners without their consent is a misdemeanor, and violators face up to six months in jail.

    Mari says she recognizes the need to be more cautious.
