The following A- to D-listers have appeared in more than just movies and TV shows. Once upon a time, these sexy (and not-so-sexy) stars recorded their under-the-covers antics, and their formerly private tapes are now very public.
In honor of the most recent leak – Hulk Hogan’s steamy home video (cue the collective eew), read on for the X-rated rundown. This is just the tip of the celeb sex tape iceberg.
When it was leaked: October 2012
Who it’s with: Hogan’s partner is Heather Clem, the ex-wife of Hogan’s best friend, DJ Bubba the Love Sponge. Um, best name ever?
The aftermath: Back when an unnamed third party approached Vivid Entertainment with the tape, Hogan’s lawyer issued a statement on behalf of his client: “[Hogan] neither approved of the filming nor the release of the same. It is clearly an outrageous invasion of privacy and breach of trust if it is genuine.”
Now that it’s been leaked, Gawker has the blow-by-blow. Pun intended.
When it was leaked: February 2007
Who it’s with: R&B singer Ray J
The aftermath: The Keeping Up With the Kardashians diva sued Vivid Entertainment, the company that released the tape under the appropriately dramatic title Kim Kardashian: Superstar, in February 2007, and she settled two months later for a cool $5 million.
In August 2011, an “anonymous” buyer offered Vivid $20 million for rights to the tape, but Vivid turned ‘em down. Why? The sexy vid that made Kim K. mega-famous has to be worth way more than that.
In late September 2012 it came out that Kanye West, Kim’s boyfriend, has a couple tapes of his own to worry about, both shot several years ago. Sources tell TMZ that in addition to the video of Kanye and an 18-year-old Kim Kardashian look-alike, he stars in another video with a different ex.
