Earlier this week it was reported that boxer Amir Khan has been left “mortified” after X-rated footage of himself masturbating had been leaked online. Amir’s wife has been left “absolutely disgusted” by the video, which was reportedly filmed weeks after they got married back in 2013. However, Amir is far from the only star to be hit by a sex tape scandal, and here I look back at the 9 most famous sex tapes of all time:
This is perhaps the most famous celeb sex tape of all time as it was one of the first to be leaked onto the internet after it was stolen from their house back in 1995. The footage shows Pam and Tommy on their honeymoon and Pam was quick to sue the video distribution company who had posting it, eventually receiving a confidential settlement.
Paris secured herself a spot in the headlines after her sex tape, 1 Night In Paris, leaked in 2003 – just before the launch of her and Nicole Richie’s TV show, ‘The Simple Life’. Things soon turned bitter between Paris and Rick, with the pair suing eachother for the release of the tape and Paris later revealing that she didn’t receive a single dime from the leak.
Many claim that unknown socialite, Kim Kardashian, was left inspired when she saw her BFF Paris Hilton’s career sky-rocket following the leak of her sex tape, and it has been widely alleged that Kim made a sex tape with her then-boyfriend, singer Ray J, to boost her profile. Released in 2007, Kim struck a deal with the rights holders and earned about £3million from the tape, and she is now one of the most famous names on the planet.
Famous for perhaps all the wrong reasons, Dustin Diamond’s ‘Saved By The Smell’ sex tape is arguably the most uncomfortable footage of the lot. Famous from 1990s kid’s show ‘Saved By The Bell’, Dustin’s tape mostly consists of himself filming two unknown girls together before introducing viewers to the vomtastic act of a ‘Dirty Sanchez’. Don’t look it up, I’ve warned you.
Katie Price recently hit the headlines after opening up about her cringey sex tape that she made with her ex-boyfriend back in 1999. The video was leaked onto the Internet and the former glamour model has now admitted that she wants to film another one because in the original she was “six months pregnant with a swollen clitoris”. She has also made light of the fact that in the video Dane – wait for it – penetrates her with his toe. Gross!
Tulisa earned a lot of respect following the cruel leak of her sex tape, which saw her performing oral sex on her then-boyfriend Justin Edwards. The star made a candid YouTube video where she confessed to being the woman in the vid and admitted that she was “heartbroken” and “devastated” that Justin had allegedly sold the tape without her knowledge.
Things got nasty between Hollywood actor Colin and his former lover, Playboy model Nicole Narain after he accused her of selling their sex tape to make money and up her own profile. Colin and Nicole settled out of court and the Irish star later shared: “At the end of the deposition the man in charge said, ‘I hope you’ve learned your lesson, Mr Farrell,’ and I said, ‘Absolutely, next time I’ll take the tape with me.'”
Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham’s sex tape raised eyebrows when it was released in 2013 due to the fact that her co-star was a professional porn actor and the highly professional camerawork. Farrah apparently earned $1.5 million after selling the tape to Vivid Entertainment, which released the clip under the title Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom, but it was marketed as a leaked sex tape. A sequel was released a couple of years later, made up from unseen footage of the same encounter.
Abi and John’s 2005 sex tape was made all the more shocking by the presence of a second woman, aspiring model Aisha Abubakar. Initially, Abi lost her job as a reporter for Richard and Judy but her modelling career ended up going from strength to strength.
