From Rihanna to Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, the comprehensive – and eye-opening – list continues: -
Nicki Minaj – She’s barely been around five minutes, but Nicki Minaj has already found herself caught up in a sex tape scandal. In December 2010, Mediatakeout.com claimed to have a video which allegedly showed the rapper engaged in acts with a male associate. A number of online companies were said to be involved in an online bidding war over the tape, with an asking price of $100,000 on the table.
Madonna – The Queen Of Pop found herself at the centre of a sex tape scandal in 2008 when a New York man claimed to have footage of her romping with US baseball legend Alex Rodriguez. The website that carried the claim amusingly said the tape showed them doing the “mattress mambo”. The singer’s lawyers said at the time that they were “aware” of the claims, but did no comment. It turned out to be another hoax.
Gene Simmons – Ewwww. That was our reaction when in 2008 a tape surfaced apparently showing KISS’s Gene Simmons romping with a woman. At the time, Simmons insisted that he didn’t have any knowledge of the video being made and that he was “blackmailed” and “extorted” before it leaked. The woman in the so-called tape later claimed she had been victimised.
Vince Neil – If we’ve learned one thing, it’s that sex tapes come back to haunt you. In 1993, Motley Crue’s Vince Neil shot what he probably thought was an innocent romp with porn star Janine Lindemulder and Penthouse Pet Brandy Ledford. Only it wasn’t when the company responsible for Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s aforementioned sex fest got its hands on the footage.
