Sex Tape? Bring It On, K-Fed

By Liz Kelly

Maybe Kevin Federline is flailing considering the one-two punch of a tepid -- actually, downright cold -- reception for his album, "Playing With Fire," and Britney Spears's decision to kick him to the curb.

Of course, we were all pretty sure he was low-rent when he glommed on to Britney, knocked her up (twice), then started rapping about all the things he bought with his allowance, but in the last week, he reached a low not seen since CHUD or maybe David Gest.

First, news surfaced that Federline plans to sue for custody of his two children with Britney Spears (oddly, he never bothered to do the same for the two kids he fathered with Shar Jackson) and over the weekend British tabloid News of the World reported that Federline has a four-hour sex tape of his lovemaking with Spears, but he'll hand it over to her if she gives him $30 million and the kids. If not, it goes to the highest bidder.

I believe I echo Howard Stern and others when I say, so what. Let him sell it. Let the tape be seen. It can't do much more damage than Britney's disjointed Dateline interview or "Britney & Kevin: Chaotic." In fact, it doesn't seem to have hurt other sex tape victims (Pamela Anderson, Paris Hilton) at all.

Britney -- shrug, go on Letterman and talk about how having sex with your then-husband is no shocker and display the proper amount of pity for the poor fool. K-Fed may have the tape, but you've got the prenup and (now) the goodwill of any judge in the land.

Why do I get the feeling that this "4 hour sex tape" is actually a compiliation of Britney and K-Fed having sex 240 times?

The only tape K-Fed needs to worry about is the one showing him going to prison for back child support.

TMZ and Access Hollywood will be there to capture the moment.

Maybe each should threaten to release the other's pre-processed vocal track masters. That could end careers rather quickly, I suspect.

Liz, why did you not ask the most important question, which is "would you buy it?"

and the answer is YES! We need to make sure that the sex tape peddlers know there is a market out there. That way we can guarantee that enough money will be fronted to buy and release it. We've been exposed to every other aspect of their life, why not their sex life too?

I'm always amused by how many people take polls and then answer, "I don't know". I wonder how many people answered "I don't know" on both, and why they took the poll in the first place....

It wasn't "I don't know," it was "I don't care." Pay attention.

I thin Britney should hard-ball Fed-Ex to the terms of the pre-nup and give him his $5 million or so (1/2 the house, etc.). If he sells the tape for $50 million, then she can sue him for invasion of privacy for not having obtained her consent before selling it for commercial distribution, say to the tune of $60 million for return of his unlawful profit, plus pain & suffering. In the end, Fed-Ex won't have made any money from the tape, and will actually end up owing her $5 million or so. Wouldn't that be ironic? or, to paraphrase Alannis M.: It's your gold-digging ex now owing you millions, when he thinks he's hit his payday.

I want a lawyer to weigh in on this. Is it legal if both (all) parties haven't consented? Isn't this blackmail? Does the slime actually claim he has a signed release?

With everybody having a sex tape these days, it's completely uninteresting (to me) when it involves a wife and husband. I mean, they had 2 kids in 2 years, I would think they had sex, and even a 4-hr session (doubtful, I mean look at him!) isn't out of the realm of possibility.
So, no interest.
UNLESS it's a tape of Britney having sex with Shar Jackson, THAT I would pay for.

Make that Shar Jackson, Xtina, Madonna and a midget.
That tape? Priceless.

You did not just dis CHUD like that.

Soon it will be de rigeur for stars to have sex tapes--"My career was going nowhere until I did my sex tape." In the age of pseudo reality television, real reality television is the only money. Publish that tape!

I thought Britney was in CHUD?

Posted by: AKfaust | November 15, 2006 1:33 PM | Report abuse

the ultimatum of "give me the kids or i'll publicly release a tape of us having sex" (for our kids and their friends to see, among others), is really priceless. white trash at its finest, yee-haw!

Posted by: shza | November 15, 2006 1:36 PM | Report abuse

Interesting. Law and Order recently had an episode that was "not based on any real persons" where "K-Fed" kills somebody in order to get back his tape of his wife, "Britney," doing coke. The person he killed had taken the tape from him and K-Fed intended to get the tape back for "insurance" in case of divorce.

You know, if I wanted to see a video of two married people having sex for four hours, I could just make one of my husband and myself for free. Of course it would probably take us the next 20 years to get enough footage.

Posted by: Barb | November 15, 2006 2:06 PM | Report abuse

Well, it can't be any worse than that video with Britney jabbering and belching for the camera, right?

Posted by: Phil | November 15, 2006 3:12 PM | Report abuse

If he could edit himself out and Xtina in, then it would have more career-ending, yet profitibility enhancing value. Also I would buy it as they are of a hotness to the ultimate max.

I'm not an lawyer, but I'm pretty sure that you cannot show someone's likeness in a published video if that person has not signed a release allowing you to do so. I would assume that Britney did not sign a release for her face to be shown, so if the video was published, she would have a pretty easy lawsuit against him. That's why you always see bystanders' faces blocked out on shows like "Cops"; the people shown didn't agree to have their faces broadcasted.

Posted by: Chris | November 15, 2006 3:51 PM | Report abuse

But what about the Paris and Tommy Lee/Pamela Anderson sex tapes? I'm pretty sure they didn't sign a release to have their faces shown. Also, if it is released on-line doesn't that kind of negate the release signing requirement? But maybe Fed-Ex won't get paid as much if it's only released on-line. . . Okay, I've argued myself into a corner. Can we all just agree that Kevin Federline is a no-talent a** clown redneck wannabe Corleone "I'll make her an offer she can't refuse" dunderhead? Who will fade into obscurity in less time than it takes Britney to finish a Super-Sized Big Mac extra value meal?

Ferret-face needs to disappear, NOW. Which means everyone has to stop talking about him. Let's start right now. Poof! Begone!

Posted by: make it stop! | November 15, 2006 4:45 PM | Report abuse

All of those other sex tapes were released by an unknown source. There was no one to sue, b/c they didn't know who stole it.

Posted by: tlawrenceva | November 15, 2006 4:57 PM | Report abuse

Can't we charge him with being terminally stupid?

And then sentence him to a swift kick in the rear? Or at least having to go have a real Mom give him a lecture on how to be a MAN!

Posted by: Huh? | November 15, 2006 5:33 PM | Report abuse

BS, tlawrenceva. things do not get widely sold and rented by "unknown sources." they were distributed bc they got a cut of the profit... paris and the lees all got in on the $.

why do you think you haven't seen colin ferrel's tape? bc he's sued to keep it from being distributed.

Posted by: --- | November 15, 2006 5:41 PM | Report abuse

I agree. I think Kevin should release the sex tape.

Posted by: pornfan | November 15, 2006 6:08 PM | Report abuse

Not only should she say "NO" to the extortion attempt, she should demand 50% of any proceeds from the sale or use of the tape. Don't worry about how it affects your sorry reputation as an entertainer, as the article states, it doesn't seem to hurt others -- indeed it might actually help you.

unless there is something in their pre-nup or another legal agreement stating that he (or she) can not sell pictures/video from their relationship, there is nothing that prevents him from doing so

Posted by: real legal opinion | November 16, 2006 1:41 PM | Report abuse

My GF & I have had several 2 hr sessions.

We're both athletes.

We were both dehydrated.

I don't believe "squishy", pampered celebs are capable of 4 hr sex (without drugs), nor would I care to watch them bump uglies.

Posted by: OhioOrrin | November 17, 2006 9:44 AM | Report abuse

If Kevin can go for four hours, then he has a promising career as a porn star. I guess he's off to a good start.

Seriously, this guy is a slime ball. He signed a pre-nup. It outlines what he would be entitled to in the event of a breakup. He should be man enough to settle for whatever is in the agreed upon contract.

Now I would like to ask the question, how many celebrity sex tapes have to be released to the public before celebrities quit allowing themselves to be videotaped having sex? I find it hard to feel sorry for people that are that stupid. If you wouldn't want anyone else to see it, then just say no!

Kevin who?

OhioOrrin: you and the GF...you were dehydrated before or after ????
