Kendra Wilkinson Fights Release of Sex Tape
By PopEater Staff Posted May 5th 2010 02:38PM
Kendra Wilkinson, and it plans to release the tape at the end of the month. Radar Online reports that Wilkinson has hired Los Angeles-based lawyer Yael E. Holtkamp to stop the tape's release, confirming it is in fact the real deal. The sex tape is "highly confidential, taken for private use and not for public disclosure," as specified in a cease and desist letter to Vivid. According to sources, the tape was made with an ex-boyfriend before Wilkinson met professional footballer Hank Baskett, whom she married last June and has one child with.
The CEO of Vivid, Steve Hirsch, is not backing-down, even after receiving the legal warning from Wilkinson's lawyers. "After reviewing our legal position, we remain confident of our right to distribute the video. Thus Vivid.Com plans to release 'Kendra Exposed' within the next several weeks," he told Radar.
The adult film company is the same one that brought sex tapes from Kim Kardashian, Shauna Sand and Paris Hilton into the world. It is speculated that one of Kendra's ex-boyfriends sold the sex tape to Vivid, with sources revealing that Wilkinson knew about the video but never thought that it would be released to the public.
Vivid released a full press release to the media about Wilkinson's salacious sex tape:
"We know that Kendra has millions of fans and we feel that it's rare to find well-produced, hardcore footage of a star of her magnitude. The tape was brought to us by a third party and after consulting with our attorneys, we are confident in our right to distribute it. We've been trying to reach Kendra but have so far been unsuccessful. We therefore made the decision to release 'Kendra Exposed' to stores across the country by the end of May," said Steven Hirsch, founder/co-chairman of Vivid. "We believe this could be our all time best selling celebrity tape."
