Jessica Simpson workout tapeAn exercise video Jessica Simpson filmed six years ago may soon be released, despite a long legal battle eventually ensuring the opposite.

According to, Simpson made the tape for Speedfit but did not approve of its release, leading to a protracted court battle. Now a new owner has purchased the tape and is challenging prior rulings about its release.

"I bought rights to distribute the Jessica Simpson exercise video from Alex Astilean. My intent is to re-edit it," the buyer, Ed Meyer, tells Radar. "I believe that the NY Court's recent judgment in favor of Jessica Simpson is moot and has no teeth, and I believe that I can distribute the new video from California."
