7 Celebs with Scandalous Sex Tapes
A celebrity sex tape is typically an amateur pornographic video recording involving one or more celebrities which has been, intentionally or unintentionally, made available publicly. Such videotapes are often released without consent of their subjects and could potentially damage celebrities’ careers. However, in recent years many celebrities have benefited from the publicity of the release of a sex tape. The release of Paris Hilton’s sex tape in 2003 as well as Kim Kardashian’s sex tape in 2007 brought them to a new level of fame, leading to magazine covers, book deals, and reality TV series. Check out these 7 celebs who had a little too much exposed to the public.
1. Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton and then-boyfriend Rick Salomon recorded themselves having sex in a hotel room, shot in night vision. Hilton initially attempted to stop the distribution of the tape, but she now receives profits from the distribution of the video. This footage, along with additional full-color footage, was released commercially under the title 1 Night in Paris.
2. Jennifer Williams
VH1′s Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams just joined the list of reality stars to have nude pictures hit the Internet. Jennifer is the 2nd girl from Basketball Wives with nude pictures to hit the web. First it was Evelyn Lozado, now Jennifer. Wonder how husband Eric Williams is dealing with this new development.
Released as part of a blackmail scandal, Eve’s sex tape features former boyfriend/producer Stevie J touching himself just out of frame, thank goodness, while pleasing his lady with an adult toy. The leaked footage may have been only 18 seconds long, but it was more than enough time to show Eve’s freaky side.
4. Pamela Anderson
Pamela Anderson and then-husband Tommy Lee had various interludes from their honeymoon placed online by Internet Entertainment Group in 1998 as one of the earliest Internet celebrity sex tapes.
5. Kim Kardashian
Socialite and reality TV star Kim Kardashian confirmed the existence of a sex tape of her made by then-boyfriend Ray J. She threatened to take legal action to block its planned distribution by Vivid Video. Her sex tape arguably made her a household name when E! made her and her family the focus of the reality show called Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
6. Colin Farrell
In 2002 Playboy Playmate Nicole Narain and Colin Farrell created a 13-minute sex tape together. Farrell confirmed the existence of the tape and successfully obtained a court order blocking its distribution. However, thanks to Candace Smith, a friend of Narain’s, copies of the tape appeared on the Internet in January 2006. Farrell later filed a lawsuit against Smith for allegedly conspiring with Narain to distribute the tape.
7. R. Kelly
In 2001 R&B star R. Kelly was part of a sex tape that allegedly included an underage girl. After much legal wrangling, the state of Illinois failed to make its case and R. Kelly was not charged. Despite possibly documenting a crime, creating child pornography, Kelly was not convicted. The video got wide distribution in the world of Adult Videos and although Kelly’s career as a songwriter flourished, his overall appeal was tarnished.
