i'd worry about what you know is fact and what you can actually deal with as it stands you don't know who it is and as far as i can tell apart from a bit of paranoia doesn't really affect you

I agree with Alex, but in answer to the question "What should I do?" I would suggest giving "spellcheck" a go before you put up another posting.

I'd message the moderators here if it's a purestorm issue and you've been told who is sharing your messages.

Moderator Input
Unless there was a serious Model Safety aspect Administrators would not access the mail server
to read private correspondence between two members at the request of a third member.
However if private correspondence was made public on the site there would be grounds to take action.

I wouldnt let it worry you really.
For one your not going to be shooting with this model (or are you),
Secondly it wont affect your modelling.
The photographers who wanted to shoot wiht you still will, and those who dont, wont.

Let people be childish and talk.

If its blatent lies or nasty then tell the mods.

Sorry to hear this has happened to you. It's completely vile behaviour on the part of the person sharing your private messages, especially about something so personal but as others have said, try not to worry about it. You haven't done anything wrong and it's unlikely to affect your reputation or bookings.

Ask yourself why the model has bothered to contact you with this info. Be aware that there are some underhand photographers who administer models' accounts as if they were the model. The model account that mailed you may be run by the photographer himself - I'm just saying don't take everything at face value.

Thankyou everyone but teh rude remark about spell check i have dislexia who spell check doesnt really help if my misspellings offend you dont reply been rude :/

i was ment to be working with the photogragher and now this has put me off
as he was that read to me as pressuring me to do shoots levels i was not comfortable so apparently he sentthe message to the model to ask if he did i shoudl be made to feel like im a bad model just cos i wont take my clothe soff to shoot

the model message me of her fb saying i was been rude and ill manored to the photogragher when i wasnt i was just saying how i shouldnt haveto tell him teh personal reason for my discomfort with the way he was replying to my messages as it seem snappy and abit disapoint i woiuldnt do the shoots he wanted even tho it stated in my casting i didnt want to do them :/

Fiona, dont do ANYTHING that your not happy to do.
If your levels are pushed this will show in the photos as you wont be comfortable.
It sounds as though he is controlling, trying to get you to do something you dont wish to by trying to embaress you in front of other people.
I would lose no sleep over him, and dont even bother responding to his messages, he is NOT worth it and will some move on to his next 'victim'.

There are plenty more people who would be happy shooting you at the levels your comfortable with (me included).

theres always going to be a few bad eggs around just dont let in knock you and put it behind you, ive been in this industry for nearly 9 years and although ive come across a few turds ive had the chance to work with tons and tons of great photographers dont let some sad knob with controll issues get the better of you hun x

Don't know the ins and outs, but I'd guess someone was trying to stir things up between you and the photographer. My advice is ignore neagtive gossip and rumours as they're ten a penny.

Unless the model showed you or repeated word for word your message, I'd assume it's just gossip.

People talk, so get used to it. The best networks will discuss each other, I always ask other people about models or other creatives I intend to work with.

If the model is someone you don't know, politely tell them to mind their own business. If the model is someone you do know, then maybe it is worth listening too.

I've had conversations told back to me blown up out of proportion. I'm amazed how much gossip does go on.

im the tog in question i did not send any mail to the model she is referring to i have sent at least 8 mails to her about a t f p shoot she cast for, I was going to drive to her an hour away from me.
In those mails i explained i had a project its a christine keeler and chair type shoot asking her to google it and also i had said i was aware of her levels in all of the mails i have sent i explained to her i would respect her levels she then mailed me back in all the cases exactly as she has done hear almost uncomprehensible in some mails mainly about her levels at one point i told her i would shoot her in duffle coat and wellies if that is what she wanted.
the model she is refering to i had a shoot with and she asked me if i knew her i replied yes and asked why she said she had contacted her about wether i was safe again some thing i had asked her to do i then said to her do u know her she replied very well as she had gone out with her ex.
I had explained all the above and i wont relay what was said in reply since then iv had a lot of mail accusing me of passing mails on and about my behaviour how ever it has got to the point i have had to block her because of her ranting
i could have kept quiet but im so annoyed seeing the above as i have gone out of my way to try and respond to her casting call and help her
sorry its been a long rant but i think in all fairness i had to explain her unjust behaviour.
