A North Carolina woman just won a history-making court case against her ex-husband. 

"Why did somebody who loved me and married me do something like this to hurt me ... not just me, the kids?" Elizabeth Clark asked Inside Edition. 

For seven years, she was married to U.S. Army Maj. Adam Clark, a Green Beret. Together, they welcomed two children

While he was on a training mission, Elizabeth once sent Adam a topless photo. "He was gone," she said. "[It was] something to make him excited to come home to."

But in 2018, they divorced after Elizabeth learned he was having an affair. 

The next thing she knew, though, the photo she'd sent him was posted on a social media chatroom. 

The caption? "Liz Clark whore."

Her ex also had the nerve to make sure she'd seen it, sending her a text that read. "Saw that floating around the internet ... just letting you know."

There was more — another photo, which Elizabeth had posed for shortly after she had given birth to her daughter, clearly intended to make her look unflattering. 

"I knew he posted it," she said. "I knew he was on there. He's the only one who had this picture."

The photos were circulated so widely, Elizabeth said, that she was approached by a stranger who offered to buy her a drink after recognizing her. 

Elizabeth said her ex wrote “a lot of hurtful untrue things.”  

"It makes me feel like I let my children down," she added.

She took Adam to court and won a $3.2 million judgment in North Carolina's first revenge porn case to reach a jury verdict.

"I couldn't believe it," she said. "I got so lightheaded, I thought I was going to faint."

Elizabeth hopes the judgment sends her ex a message. 

"Now I'm showing him I'm fighting back and showing him how strong I am," she said.
