Sin Chew Daily reported that 25-year-old Chen said the man used her e-mail account to send out the pictures to her friends, colleagues and family members.
The couple met in 2004 while both were studying in Australia. Chen decided to call off their relationship in September last year. She is working in Malaysia, and he in the financial sector in Shanghai, China.
The man had made numerous calls to Chen to reconcile, but to no avail. Unable to accept the decision, he sent out the pictures as an apparent act of revenge.
Chen said she only knew about it after one of her friends received the offending e-mail last week. Her friends and colleagues had since promised not to circulate the pictures.
Embarrassed by the incident, Chen said she was in two minds as to whether she ought to remain working where she was.
Department head Datuk Michael Chong said he would accompany Chen to meet the man, who had informed her via e-mail that he would meet her in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow.
