How do you deal with false rumors?

I recently dumped my now ex boyfriend for many different reasons, but it rubbed him the wrong way. At first I just thought he was emotional cause he cried and we agreed that this was mutual. But then I go to school the next day and he has already told all of his friends that I'm a slut.

I usually wouldn't care but then I noticed that my not so nude but damn near close to it pictures that i sent him had been seen by others. Now I'm feeling violated and betrayed.

This past 2-3 days have been extremely difficult for me and I'm not sure exactly what to do. My rep seems ruined at my school outside of some close friends I have.

I feel lonely and so hurt.
