Can I do anything to stop my ex husband tell people about me

Resolved Question:

Can I do anything to stop my ex husband tell people about me being abused as a child?

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Is it a truthful representation of what you told him?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not all of it but got sent the message for his ex girlfriend and she sent messages to my sons who now I might have to tell them
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

So some of what he is saying is untrue?

Or not accurately what you said to him?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
some not accurate but I've not told people
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

There isn't anything that can be done about the breach of confidence. It is morally wrong but no more than that. Certainly it is not legally actionable.

If he is saying things that are wildly at odds with what you told him then that might be actionable. I suppose arguably that could be a defamation. Whether or not you would want to sue is another matter of course.

If you tell me how badly wrong they are then I might be able to offer more.

Can I clarify anything for you?
