Celebrity sex tapes come in two forms: the celebrities that were famous first and featured in a tape second and those who actually became famous for their involvement in a tape. There are also, of course, those celebrity tapes you DIDN’T want to see. Most of these celeb tapes are actually watchable, but there are certainly a few that we wouldn’t recommend.
This list of famous Hollywood celebrities caught filming a movie in the sheets features a little of both. Be it an actor, actress, singer or politician, male or female, intimate movies seem to be all the rage for the biggest celebrities these days. Some are released by former lovers looking to make a buck while others are filmed in secret without the knowledge of the participants. Some celebs even market their own tapes with the hopes of making a buck or getting their names back in the headlines via news reports about a star or wannabe star’s latest new celebrity video. Occasionally famous people will even go for it and full on make a steamy video meant for release. That’s certainly one way to get people to talk about you…
This list is only about real saucy celebrity videos some of them “leaked,” others clearly not-even-pretending-to-be leaked!
Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star, Mimi Faust, and her on-off boyfriend, Nikko Smith, apparently recorded a very extreme tape sometime in early 2014. This footage was “discovered” by the head of Vivid Entertainment, Steve Hirsch, by “coincidence” who offered the two reality stars big bucks to give Vivid exclusive rights to the tape.
It is no surprise that both Mimi and Nikko agreed to the offer. It is also no surprise that the tape went on sale a few weeks before their show debuted its new season.
On April 10th, 2013, it was confirmed that former Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham had filmed a movie with adult actor James Deen. The plan (on Abraham’s part) appears to have been to pose with Deen as a couple to create the illusion the tape in question was a private tape that had been leaked rather than one intentionally released for bidding.
Just when you think Abraham is done, she does it again. In early 2014, another film starring her dropped and release some custom made toys that were fit to her exact measurements. And then, in 2017, the starlet (?) did a livestream from her home where she used some of her own products to entertain viewers. Some people were not happy though, as Abraham promised some backstage action, but never delivered.
In August 2013, Sydney Leathers – who is famous for exchanging racy texts with Anthony Weiner – made an movie, TMZ reported. Vivid Entertainment is behind the film, which mostly involves Sydney Leathers without a top on, holding up newspaper coverage of Weinergate whilst touching herself. At least someone’s career is going somewhere.
It looks like Kim Kardashian is at it again. Sort of.
In 2014, reports surfaced that a home video featuring Kim’s then-boyfriend Kanye West, was being shopped around. There was some debate whether the woman in the video was a Kim K lookalike or the real deal, but Kardashian herself hinted the couple might’ve made a very personal movie.
