Saved by the Bell cast member reportedly threatened with sex tape release
A Saved by the Bell actress is facing a scary legal situation.
According to the Daily Mail, Lark Voorhies’ estranged husband is shopping a sex tape of the two of them to various news websites, offering to sell it to the highest bidder.
Voorhies, who played Lisa Turtle on Saved by the Bell from 1989 to 1993, filed for divorce from music engineer Jimmy Green last week. Since then, sites say Green has been “bragging” about the tape and his hope to make a huge profit selling it.
Voorhies isn’t denying that the tape exists, but she does say that Green recorded it “surreptitiously” and she had no idea that he was taping them having sex. Green denies that and says Voorhies knew about the tape from the time it was recorded.
Green and Voorhies reportedly wed in an impromptu ceremony in Las Vegas in April. They met on Facebook and dated for less than a year before tying the knot. Green has told TMZ that the marriage “has been a nightmare from the beginning,” but it was Voorhies who filed for divorce. The filings show that she is asking the court “to cut any chances of spousal support for Jimmy.”
Voorhies’ mother, Patricia Voorhies, told People magazine in 2012 that her daughter suffers from bipolar disorder. She also described Voorhies as “emotionally fragile.” That may have contributed to the quick marriage, which Patricia has looked down on from the start — in June, she was granted a temporary restraining order against Green, whom she said was a member of a Los Angeles street gang. She accused him of throwing gang signs at her during arguments and of squatting in her home — after she asked him to leave, she said, she would find him sleeping in hidden parts of her house, including a closet.
