A MUM-of-two has hanged herself after her vindictive ex sent their old sex tape to her colleagues in a Spanish factory.
Veronica Rubio’s jealous ex-boyfriend wanted to rekindle their relationship despite her marrying another man and having a nine-month-old baby and a four-year-old.
The mum, 32, was working at the CNH Industrial lorry factory in San Fernando de Henares, near the Spanish capital of Madrid.
Local media reports say that rumours were spreading among its 2,500 employees that a sex tape of one of the female workers was being shared online.
Ms Rubio‘s colleague told local media: “She got very nervous and had to leave the factory because she could not stand the pressure, not only here but also in her family.‘She only wanted the story to move on, for people to stop talking as soon as possible. She did not think about reporting it.”
When the scandal would not die down, Ms Rubio was said to have apologised to her husband then she committed suicide. She leaves behind a 4-year-old child and a 9-month old baby.
Reacting to her death, CNH Industrial said it was aware of her situation and had offered her help. A spokesperson added they had followed protocol and offered Mrs Rubio a different role and sick leave, which she apparently rejected.
But a union at the factory disputed this and they are reportedly planning to sue the company for not activating the sexual harassment protocol. The factory workers also organised a protest at work over the death of Ms Rubio.
The Spanish Penal Code punishes those who leak a video without the permission of the person in it with a prison sentence between three months to one year if it affects their personal privacy. Police confirmed they were investigating and said no report had been made about the sex tape.
