In sex tape news, Usher Raymond and Tameka Raymond are supposedly the stars of a home video being shopped around.
According to TMZ, the tape fell into the wrong hands after someone broke into Usher’s vehicle in Atlanta back in 2010. The thief got away with approximately $1 million in jewelry, two laptops and two video cameras. One of the cameras reportedly contained sexually explicit footage of intimate moments shared between Usher and his now ex-wife, Tameka Raymond.
Someone attempted to sell the tape to adult film companies, but no one wanted the headache, as it’s unlikely that Usher and Tameka would sign off on the video’s release. The tape has since resurfaced and since the seller hasn’t had much luck with porn companies, he’s hoping that a blog will purchase the tape from him.
It’s unclear if the culprit realizes that, if caught, he could end up in jail for peddling stolen property. According to reports, Usher’s attorney Mark Gregaros is working aggressively to track down the person trying to sell the footage.
Considering how much is a stake, we can’t really see anyone taking on the legal headache that will come with purchasing and publishing the video. But we’ll have to stay tuned to see what happens. As for Tameka’s thoughts on the situation, she told us in an exclusive statement this morning that TMZ’s story is “nothing but an old rumor that’s been addressed already,” and added:
“It’s sad where the world has come to today. I know I have never made a sex tape, especially not for distribution. You get married so you can do whatever it is you want. My ex-husband and I definitely made our children the old-fashioned way; they are not products of the immaculate conception. That was my husband. We had a lot of fun. He was my husband in a proper sense. No wifey fake sh*t. I think the world has gotten really desperate to be so invasive in peoples lives. There should be some limitations and hopefully laws baring people from doing this stuff.”
While Usher’s attorney may be working overtime to halt this alleged release, Tameka says no one has contacted her so she’s not sure how valid this entire sex tape claim is.
“I don’t know if they’re trying to extort money or what because because no one has ever approached me about it,” she said. “People are so thirsty. They are thirst trappers; the thirst is so real. Sex is so important to everyone. Why do you want to watch a married couple?”
