Courtney Stodden is releasing her sex tape after all. The reality star and former teen bride made a deal with Vivid Entertainment to release her solo adult video and to donate the earnings to charity.
Stodden, 20, has finally agreed to release her solo sex tape. She will reportedly earn $1 million from the deal with Vivid, but she will donate the entire money to various charities instead of keeping the money. Although Stodden didn’t mention which charities she’ll donate to, she has said she plans to donate to ones that focus on animal rights and “children with cancer.”
Vivid Entertainment CEO Steven Hirsch told TMZ that Stodden’s sex tape came from an anonymous third party. Hirsch didn’t know if the third party knew Stodden or not.
The reality star sent a letter to Hirsch claiming that she would take legal action if her sex tape would be distributed without her permission. In fact, Stodden sent a statement to FOX 411 about the matter last Thursday.
“I want my tape back and Mr. Hirsch needs to respond to my attorney’s demand letter to return it to me immediately. My private video’s not for sale. I don’t need the million dollars.”
Stodden previously said that her solo sex tape was for Doug Hutchison’s eyes only. She says that it was originally private footage that she filmed. Stodden also claims that one of her “best friends” was the ones who stole her sex tape.
She claims that her so-called friend “made it clear that he will stop at nothing to double-cross me.” Stodden says the reason she decided to release her solo sex tape was because she was “painted into a corner.”
Celebrity sex tape broker, Kevin Blatt, says that Stodden’s story is rubbish. He says that accusations and legal letters are the perfect way to drum up interest in a sex tape.
“It’s BS. She signed the deal (with Vivid) long ago.”
Stodden drumming up publicity? That’s totally unlike her! Stodden exposed herself at a public beach last month. She was also accused of creating the publicity stunt so she can make headlines again.
The sex tape wouldn’t have been distributed without Stodden’s consent, but it would eventually leak on the internet. So it was wise to Stodden to grant permission to release the tape and donate the earnings to charity.
Stodden’s solo sex tape is reportedly the “most unique footage” that the head honchos at Vivid Entertainment has ever seen. The video features the blonde bombshell pleasuring herself, but in a different fashion. Stodden’s husband, Doug Hutchison, doesn’t make an appearance in the video, but he’s rumored to have filmed the footage.
Courtney Stodden reached fame when she married Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison at the young age of 16. He was 51-years-old at the time. The two briefly separated after starring on VH1’s Couples Therapy with Dr. Jenn. Courtney and Doug then reunited and renewed their vows a year later.
