Revenge porn video ends in death

A STUDENT plunged to her death just days after her “toxic” boyfriend threatened to send a revenge porn video to her family, an inquest heard.

Damilya Jussipaliyeva, 24, fell 80ft from her London flat a week after her ex-boyfriend Alessio Bianchi said he would send the explicit videos to her Muslim family in Kazakhstan and Dubai.

An inquest today heard that her devastated family had begged her to break up with “toxic” Bianchi just days before she fell to her death in June 2017.

Bianchi, 30, admitted disclosing private sexual photographs and films and one count of assault by beating when he appeared in court in March 2018 –  relating to an incident the week before her death.

The hearing heard that she died from injuries consistent with falling from a large height and there was no evidence of assault or restraint by a third party.

A court also heard that there were also no injuries indicative of self-harm, and a toxicology report found a high level of Xanax and a low level of alcohol.

Damilya was found to have cocaine in her urine, but not her blood, which suggested that she was not under the influence at the time of the incident.

She met Bianchi while they were both studying at Regent’s University in London, and had dreamed of becoming a professional makeup artist.

Westminster Coroner’s Court was originally meant to conduct a jury hearing, but now a coroner alone will oversee the inquest.

Southwark Crown Court heard the couple had gone for a night out together on June 1, 2017, and came back to his apartment in Paddington.

Bianchi is said to have pushed her out of his apartment in the early hours of the morning and thrown her into the water feature outside, leaving her distraught and humiliated.

But he claims that he was trying to stop his then girlfriend from killing herself.

Ainel Jussipaliyeva, Damilya’s sister, gave live evidence from Dubai in which she described herself as “very angry” with Bianchi.

She said that the couple had broken up in March, following an argument in which she suspected him of cheating on her, and visited her in Dubai.

Aniel said: “She was actually scared of him. He was either drunk or under drugs I’m not sure.

“He came during the night in the appointment, crashed the apartment as per her words.

“My mother flew to London to be with her and after that, she came to Dubai.

“She knew it was a toxic relationship and she was happy she was finally over it and wanted to start from the beginning and focus on her studies.

“[I knew it was toxic] because she was thinking she needed to break up with him but she couldn’t because she was in love.”

‘SHE DIDN’T WANT TO LISTEN’

Aniel said the last time she spoke to her sister was when they fought over Damilya getting back with her ex.

She added: “I reminded her that she wanted to finish her studies, he’s bad for her, and that she needed to think more about herself.

“She started to fight with me, saying he’s a good person, maybe it’s her fault everything is going bad.

“She was saying nonsense. It was not her words, saying he’s a good guy and she’s bad.

“I didn’t recognise her. She didn’t want to listen to me.”

Damilya’s sister was also asked whether the Kazakh student was threatened with being “cut off” from finances if she chose to keep dating Bianchi.

She said her parents were considering “all options” and if it happened it would have been a “temporary punishment”.

Alexandra Felix, QC, for Bianchi, also asked about the family’s view of her sex life in reflection of the recorded sex acts.

She said: “We knew about her sexual life, but no one would expect the recording.

“We are Muslim but don’t practise the religion. It wasn’t strict to have a sexual life only after marriage.”

Bianchi, who was handed a suspended sentence for the revenge porn and assault by beating, will be questioned over his conduct at the hearing tomorrow.

Assistant Coroner Bernard Richmond QC said: “Whilst there may be a degree of squeamishness and anxiety on the side of Mr Bianchi, and I will of course hear any applications about self-incrimination if they arise, but it’s not part of my role nor am I interested in nailing every point home about misconduct.

“If it is relevant to state of mind and impact then absolutely I must go there.

“As far as police conduct is concerned, I am looking at whether police response could have been quicker but there is nothing I can read that can suggest there was a deliberate plan to delay matters or to ignore what was going on.”

“Mr Bianchi made a genuine police call to the police saying she is in trouble and if he has any human sensitivity at all I suspect he is holding himself over the coals about any potential impact on her and the impact that he had.”

Paying tribute to her sister, Aniel said: “Damilya was very cheerful, very happy person.She had lots of friends, especially when she started to study in London.

“She was very sociable, she had lots of friends and good relationships with family, relatives, and all the neighbours around her knew who knew her. She was the sunshine in our family.”

The inquest continues.
