An Italian beauty killed herself after a sex tape of her and her boyfriend, which she had sent to her ex to make him jealous  went viral.

According to the New York Post, 31-year-old Tiziana Cantone, who lived in Naples, Italy, committed suicide as she sat by herself in a cellar after the humiliating video of her performing a sex act went viral on the internet.

“They destroyed my daughter, my life and the lives of an entire family. Although in that cellar where she took her own life Tiziana was alone, morally to pull the noose around the neck were the ex-boyfriend, and those who took advantage,” the woman’s mother, Maria Teresa Gigolo, told a local newspaper.

According to close friends and relatives, the 31-year-old was deeply depressed and on the brink of suicide for months prior to her death because of the explicit tape

It is not clear how the explicit footage found its way to the internet, where it first emerged in 2015. The video became so widely known, it forced the woman to legally change her name.

The woman also became the target of brutal online jokes and was mercilessly harassed by cyber-bullies.

Cantone would frequently receive daunting emails and was often shamed by individuals who recognized her on the street, the Daily Mail reported.

She grew to be so troubled that she even quit her job.

Prosecutors in her home city of Naples have opened an investigation into her death, leaving open the possibility of criminal charges being filed

Family members and friends told local Italian media that the woman went into a severe depression and was having suicidal thoughts just before she died.

Her lawyer, Roberta Manzillo, has brought legal action against some of the websites for distributing the sex video.

“We have appealed to the right-to-be-forgotten law. Facebook was immediately ordered to remove the content from its social network platform and to remove every post or publication containing images (photos and/or video) that refer specifically to the person,” the attorney stated.

Prosecutors in Naples have initiated a criminal investigation to see if any charges are justified in the case.
