Carrie Prejean Ready To Sue Pornographers If They Release Sex Tape

Vivid Entertainment has acquired the solo sex tape Carrie Prejean made for a boyfriend, and hopes to distribute it commercially. The porn company has offered the former Miss California $1 million for the rights to release the film, but despite her refusal, there seems to be some concern the footage will hit the market just the same. Prejean’s lawyer has sent a letter warning Vivid that they will be sued if they release the tape. Excerpt from XBiz.com:

“[W]e are writing at this time to inform you that the unauthorized use of any videotapes or photographs of my client will result in her suing for invasion of privacy, including misappropriation of her likeness for a commercial purpose, as well as public disclosure of private facts,” Prejean’s attorney wrote to Vivid co-chairman Steve Hirsch. “She will also sue for intentional infliction of emotional distress and seek full consequential and punitive damages.”

It’s odd to agree with the bigoted beauty queen about anything, but we are totally with her on this one. Releasing the tape would be a disgusting violation of privacy.
