Sunday, Sep 23, 2012 7:42PM
An attorney for Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has stepped forward to confirm alleged sex tape footage is authentic and how it got into an anonymous source's possession.
According to Ye's legal team, the graphic footage illegally got into the hands of another party.
A lawyer for Kanye West issued the demand today (September 23), claiming the sex tape in question was "stolen" from Kanye's computer. "Be advised that the Screen Shot, as well as the Tape from which the Screen Shot was taken, were illegally obtained and believed to have been stolen from Mr. West's computer," Kanye's lawyer Lisa M. Buckley of Pryor Cashman said in a legal document sent to AllHipHop.com. "Your posting, advertising, marketing, displaying and otherwise disseminating the stolen Screen Shot and/or other materials on the Tape constitute actionable violations of Mr. West's rights of privacy and publicity," Buckley said. Buckley warned a variety of media outlets against posting the images from the Kanye sex tape, or there could be serious legal percussions. (AHH)
An adult website has reportedly offered up to $1 million for the footage.
Representatives for Sex.com are offering a $1 million to the anonymous source who is shopping the tape. The website also said they were open to negotiate the price further. "Kanye West is an artist, one of the world's biggest stars, and ultimately a sex symbol which is why the curiosity of the public cannot go on," a rep for Sex.com told AllHipHop.com. "By making a Kanye West sex-tape public, Sex.com feels that he and current girlfriend Kim Kardashian will become the first celebrity sex-tape power couple. They will be the epitome of Western tabloid culture." Sex.com, which is the current record-holder for the most expensive domain name ever, is hoping to host Kanye's sexual encounter on their website, as they focus on their goal of becoming the most traffic website in the world.

Reports of the steamy footage getting shopped around surfaced online Friday (September 21) morning.
Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend Kanye West have even more in common than you think -- because Kanye has a sex tape too, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting -- with a Kim look-a-like! The tape is nearly 20 minutes long and appears to have been shot in a hotel room with an unidentified female who clearly states at the beginning of the video that she's 18 years old. The woman also confesses to Kanye that she is married and claims, "My husband and I don't have sex anymore... that's why I'm here!" (RadarOnline)
The woman reportedly shares a striking resemblance to Ye's current girlfriend Kim Kardashian.
With her bodacious curves, dusky skin and long black hair the woman is a definite dead ringer for Kim Kardashian. RadarOnline.com has seen the tape in full and can verify without a doubt that it is Kanye in the footage and we have published a screen grab. During the couple's steamy sex romp, they never kiss and don't interact any further than simply doing the deed, in various positions throughout and with Kanye wearing a condom. Kanye is clearly aware the romp is being filmed because you can see that he's the one who set up the camera in the beginning and at the end he looks directly into it before switching it off. According to a San Fernando sex industry insider, the video was shot sometime shortly before Kanye started dating Kim and he is terrified of the tape getting out. "The sex tape is being shopped right now and there's a lot of interest, but Kanye is freaking out!" the insider revealed. "He doesn't want this tape out and will do anything to make sure it stays private. (RadarOnline)
