The latest celebrity sex tape to hit headlines comes courtesy of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star, Mimi Faust, who recorded a hardcore romp with her on-again, off-again onscreen boyfriend, Nikko Smith. What makes this tape unique, though, is that Faust and Smith actually gave Vivid Entertainment their blessing to take the tape public. Surely there's a better way to ramp up ratings...
In 2013, Farrah Abraham, of Teen Mom fame, announced she'd filmed a sex tape with porn star, James Deen. At the time, she claimed it was simply a celebration of her body. In early 2014, she recanted, telling In Touch Weekly that the raunchy tape — titled Backdoor Teen Mom — had ruined her life. And, in February of this year, Vivid Entertainment announced its intentions to release a sequel called Farrah 2: Backdoor and More.
Arguably the most popular celebrity sex tape ever, Paris Hilton's 2004 recorded tryst with then-boyfriend, Rick Salomon, catapulted the socialite to global celebrity status. In 1 Night in Paris, as it became known, Hilton and Salomon are featured getting frisky in the glowing green of their camera's night-vision mode. To this day, Hilton swears she "never made a dollar, not one" from the intimate film.
When Tori Spelling's latest memoir, Spelling It Like It Is, hit shelves in 2013, the star pulled out all the stops to promote the tell-all tome. Among the bombshells she dropped was the revelation that she and her husband, Dean McDermott, videotaped themselves having sex on Valentine's Day in 2009. Naturally, it was sex-crazed McDermott's idea, but after checking "my angles and they were good," Spelling let her hubby keep the recording... on his computer, which was apparently "without password protection." Despite a cease and desist letter to the former friend who swiped it from the computer, the tape began making the rounds again late last year.
In news that came as absolutely no shock, Courtney Stodden admitted to E! News exclusively in 2013 that she, too, has a sex tape in existence. The former teen bride of Doug Hutchinson vowed to the network that the video was shot after she turned 18 and that she has no plans to release the tape at this time. However, the aspiring singer, who creeped out the world when she posed nude on the cover of Girls and Corpses last year, said, "You can keep it classy and be naked at the same time."
Once the undisputed king of wrestling, Hulk Hogan has become more of the king of tawdry headlines as of late. When news broke he was involved in a sex tape, even devout Hulkamaniacs hoped it was merely a rumor. Alas, the Hulkster had been caught on camera having sex with Heather Clem — the then-wife of radio DJ, Bubba the Love Sponge, who happened to be Hogan's best friend. A 1-minute clip was leaked to Gawker in 2012 and Hogan later filed massive lawsuits against Clem, Gawker and his former pal.
Tragedy struck MTV's rural teen reality show, Buckwild, last year with the unexpected passing of star, Shain Gandee, and the show was subsequently canceled. But it appears at least one of the teens featured on the show is looking to cash in using the show's name — TMZ broke the news in 2013 that the "trailer park sex" tape of Buckwild's Shae Bradley and on-again, off-again boyfriend, Jesse J, is being shopped around. Bradley admitted the tape exists, but says she regrets making it.
Just when we thought Kanye West couldn't be any more overexposed, two sex tapes starring the cocky rapper surfaced. In the first skin flick, West reportedly shares a romp with a married 18-year-old woman. In the second, extended video, the Chicago-born entertainer goes at it for a full 40 minutes with a young woman in a hotel room. He and his fiancée, Kim Kardashian, obviously have more in common than we thought.
Well, you know, while we're at it... let's just go ahead and get Kim Kardashian's infamous romp with rapper, Ray J, out of the way, shall we? In 2007, 39 minutes of pure naughtiness between Kardashian and her then-boy toy, Ray J, made its way to the internet. A relative unknown at the time, the snuff film launched Kardashian into stardom and, after she filed a suit, earned her a cool $5 million. Sources later claimed the sex tape was the brainchild of Kardashian's mother dearest, Kris Jenner.
Although Usher himself has yet to confirm the existence of a sex tape, TMZ swears one of Usher and his ex-wife, Tameka Foster, not only exists, but they've seen undeniable footage featuring the R&B superstar. Raymond only fueled rumors of the tape when she told TheYBF.com that, although she'd had sex with her ex-husband "multiple times," she would "absolutely not" sanction the release of a sex tape.
When it comes to strange things that come from reality TV, The Real Housewives of New Jersey seems to have a monopoly — and many of the show's most bizarre headlines came from troubled star, Danielle Staub. In 2009, the RHONJ drama queen successfully squashed an ex's attempt to release a sex tape on the basis that she didn't know she was being filmed. In 2010, though, Staub was involved in a second sex tape — one which was made when she was fully aware the cameras were rolling.
