Well here’s a new one. Super Bowl MVP Von Miller of the Denver Broncos is trying to stop a sex tape from being distributed of him and the woman who allegedly filmed it.
Lawyers for Miller petitioned a judge in Los Angeles to bar the woman, Elizabeth Ruiz, from releasing the tape which was reportedly filmed on her phone and offered to Miller for $2.5 million. A temporary restraining was later granted.
The Smoking Gun has more details…
Ruiz recorded herself having sex with Miller “while they were alone indoors,” the court filing reports. “Plaintiff insisted at all times that the recording be kept private. Ruiz agreed that she would keep the recording private,” added Miller’s attorney.
Upon returning to the U.S., Miller spoke with Ruiz on the phone and reminded her that “he did not want anyone to see the recording and asked Ruiz to erase the recording.” Ruiz responded, “Gotcha,” according to the court application.
In mid-September–two months after Miller’s nine-figure contract was announced–a representative for the football player was contacted by Kevin Blatt, an L.A. businessman who has brokered the sale of numerous celebrity sex tapes. Blatt, the court filing states, reported that Ruiz had sought his assistance in selling her tape, adding that she wanted to become the next Kim Kardashian.
Days after being contacted by Blatt, Miller’s agent received a letter from Corey Boddie, a lawyer representing Ruiz. Boddie subsequently met with Miller’s representatives and showed them portions of the recording of Ruiz having sex with Miller in Cancun.
During subsequent conversations with Miller’s lawyers, Boddie reported that Ruiz wanted $2.5 million “to transfer ownership of the recording” to Miller, otherwise she would publicly release the video.
Von, Von, Von… did we learn nothing from the tales of Julian Edelman and Ezekiel Elliot?
I guess not, so here’s Kyle Long with another reminder…
I will admit, however, I can’t really blame him for having sex with her…
