Angel Barta Still Claims She’s Being “Soul Tortured” By Marc Jacobs

Angel Barta, everyone copies her, has spent months posting to her blog about how “Marc Jacobs is the most cruel thief of the century“. Though she has spent the better part of 2013 leaving comment linkbacks  all over the internet to her insane claims that Marc Jacobs steals her every single idea, she’s now essentially accusing Jacobs of sexual harassment by claiming that Jacobs won’t use a model unless she satisfies his “perverse fantasy”:

Marc Jacobs asked me many times to do dirty photos for him. He asked me to pose topless and push up my breasts. He promised that if I’d do it he would let me be a model on his fashion show.

It seems that Lily McMenamy did the things Jacobs asked her to, as she has walked on MJ’s runway. Jacobs can’t stand the fact that he could not humiliate me and convince me to do those things for him. That’s why he has been torturing me and stealing my ideas, using my talent for 5 years.

Is it just me…or are those requests called “modelling”? I mean, if you don’t want to do the poses and looks that a designer wants, then he probably won’t have you in his show. I don’t see how that’s “perverse” manipulation. Just work for another designer. But then ole Angel claims:

Jacobs kept torturing me: Saying he loved me, sending me love messages, poems, he wrote love songs and asked famous singers to sing it.

She even apparently wrote a book about her “affair” with Jacobs, though it reads less like a love affair and more like Adrian Forrester begging for modelling fame from an increasingly skeeved out designer.

You know, even ignoring the fact that Jacobs is evidently gayer than the Butt Hutt on the last night of Fleet Week, if you are a legitimate model and are feeling propositioned or pressured in a way that makes you uncomfortable, the solution is not to take some crazy smear campaign to the internet. Talk to your agency and a lawyer and settle it properly if you have actual proof of these claims.  I just don’t get how she hasn’t been sued yet.

        You know how sometimes you read something and then wonder of you’ve recently had a stroke because it doesn’t make any damn sense?

        Yeah, that.

    But he seriously life-threatened her!

    My eyes are being soul tortured by her face.

  7. I did a Google images search of her. It’s disturbing how often she wears a giant bow. Not a good look.

    • Yes did you know Lady Gaga stole that from her?

    • avatar Respect privacy and lies OH MY

      Being from the south, I see huge bows on babies and little girls all the time. WHY does a grown woman wear them? No wonder she can’t get on the runway.

    • avatar JaffaCakes

      Seriously. Dat bow.

    Poor little goof, I feel sorry for her. Luckily MJ seems to recognize her nuttiness & has the patience of a saint? Following asst’d links, I came to this video & got such a sense of deja vue, like I’ve eaten brkfst in that grass hut, or one just like it (maybe watching her crazy is contagious?)

    “…the fact that Jacobs is evidently gayer than the Butt Hutt on the last night of Fleet Week…”

    Exactly. I feel like she probably isn’t going to be Marc Jacobs’ type.

      Per Wikipedia: he’s ranked number 14 on Out magazine’s 2012 list of “50 Most Powerful Gay Men and Women in America”.

      Is she a drag queen?

    It’s very sad. This girl has stalked and style steals my daughter’s bow styles from freshman year at high school in 2007. This girl also style stole of my daughter’s poses and pictures from same year. Sometime the pictures are from very same months which feel impossible due to fashion shoots being many months before publishing. Everything fashion is recycling, there are no new ideas, but she needs stop stealing my daughter’s old style.

    I actually feel sorry for her. Obviously she needs help. I am a bit worried for Mr. Jacobs, I could see this getting really ugly at some point. tumblr_m43tjhVIDs1qkuya1o1_400.gif

      Seriously. This is the kind of crazy that gets on the news. Isn’t it like text-book schizophrenia to fixate on someone and then interpret all that person’s completely unrelated actions as communication? I guess it’s not exactly like the typical celebrity stalker story, since she did actually work with him at some point, but it’s not that far off. Girl needs some actual treatment, not just a cup of STFU.

      Isn’t that what happened to Gianni Versace?

      • avatar kelly gaura

        My thoughts exactly.

        Maybe I’m currently too invested in reading ‘the gift of fear’, but I see many many red flags..

        • avatar Lionel is the REAL Messi

          I legit hope she’s nowhere near him physically/doesn’t actually have access to his social media or anything. Usually I am all on the side of the wronged, but she sounds delusional and very possibly in need of medication.

    • avatar Lionel is the REAL Messi

      I thought ‘she’ was a spambot, but knowing there is an actual person making these claims just makes me want to beg Marc Jacobs to please get better security and maybe get LVMH to sic some lawyers on this bitch for defamation.

    Wow. Is anyone taking this seriously? Talk about a cry for help…
