Kid Rock Wins Temporary Ban On Sex Tape

Subscribe to Kid Rock alerts

LATEST: Rap-rocker Kid Rock has won a temporary ban on the distribution of an explicit sex tape, which features the star and fellow singer Scott Stapp romping with four women.

Last week (17FEB06) distribution company Red Light District announced plans to release the raunchy video, which features Rock, real name ROBERT RITCHIE, and former CREED frontman Stapp talking while indulging in sexual acts with several ladies on a tour bus in Miami, Florida, in 1999.

Yesterday (21FEB06) the FOREVER hitmaker filed a lawsuit in Michigan's Detroit District Court against Red Light District - who famously sold Paris Hilton's sex video 1 NIGHT IN PARIS - accusing the firm of violation of trademark and privacy rights.

Although Ritchie's lawsuit seeks a permanent court order halting the sale or distribution of the tape, Judge JOHN FEIKENS signed a temporary order yesterday, which bans Red Light District from posting a preview clip on their websites.

The rocker's lawyer William Horton tells local newspaper Detroit Free Press, "We don't deny the authenticity of the tape. But they're using this without his permission to drive the sales of their other products."

Red Light District president David Joseph claims he obtained the video from a third-party, although Ritchie claims he understood the video was Stapp's private property after filming it.
