There's a good chance that the Iggy Azalea sex tape could legally hit the scene...at least that's what her ex-boyfriend in Houston claims. Find out what he plans to tell the judge inside...
Could Iggy Azalea (shown above with boyfriend Nick Young) be the next celebrity sex tape star? Her former boyfriend/manager Hefe Wine sure thinks so....and he's cleverly attempting to prove it legally.
A little backstory....when rumors of the sextape first came out, Iggy's team denied it was her in the video. Then they pulled the kiddie porn tactic - saying that IF it was her...she was under 18. Now...they're saying IF there is a tape, she's not going to sign off on it AND you can't use the name "Iggy".
Hefe Wine's response? BRING IT!
In 2009, when things were good between Hefe and Iggy...she signed over her music rights to him. Of course....Hefe never got rid of that little piece of paper. He's now claiming that the sex tape should fall into the narrowly defined category of items specified in the contract.
For example....Iggy's contract gives Hefe permission to create and market music vides for her. Well....if you throw a track she did while working with him in the background....looks like you've just made yourself a sex tape AND music video! We doubt T.I.'s sophisticated lawyers will lose this one...but Hefe is pretty clever!
In the meantime, VIVID Entertainment head Steve Hirsch approached Iggy's team with a multi-million dollar offer to buy the footage and release it; however, Iggy's lawyers claim "Iggy" is trademarked and VIVID cannot used her name.
Hmmm....if the sex tape is anything like Iggy's new "Booty" video with Jennifer Lopez, she should just embrace the release and watch her career take off ala the women who made it big without an actual talent, Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and the like.
Over on social media....Iggy IS NOT happy....
Looks like everybody's definition of "sex tape" is a bit different.
Rihanna is pissed at CBS! And she held nothing back, telling the network “F*ck You!” for pulling her Thursday Night Football intro last week and then deciding to run it for this week’s game. CBS heard her protest and took action. More inside…
The reason they pulled it? Well…it was the opening night for the NFL and the Baltimore Ravens were going head-to-head with the Pittsburgh Steelers (they won by the way, 26-6). With all of the controversy surrounding Ray Rice and his domestic violence scandal still being fresh, they didn’t want to run the track being that Rihanna was a victim of a highly publicized domestic violence situation (a la Chris Brown).
However, CBS decided to greenlight her track for this Thursday Night Football game, where the Atlanta Falcons face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And it definitely didn’t sit well with the Pop princess.
She took to her Twitter this morning and sent a big “F*ck You” to CBS tweeting:
CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, Fuck you! Y'all are sad for penalizing me for this.
The “Run This Town” singer is spending her free time with with friends Melissa Forde and Jennifer Rosales,snorkeling in her hometown of Barbados. She trekked it back to the island to see her favorite infant cousin (who she calls her niece) Majesty get christened. Cute.
Kerry Washington spent the evening getting gorgeous for a cause. Check out the Purple Purse event host inside, plus Jada Pinkett Smith keeping it fab on the "Gotham" red carpet....
The Allstate Foundation launched The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge, a fundraising campaign for charities benefiting domestic violence survivors. And Kerry Washington, rocking a strapless green Alexander McQueen gown and purple Casadei pumps, was on hand at The Glasshouses in NYC to host the event. Organizations and individuals can donate $10 or more for a chance to win a stylish purple purse. And the money goes to a much needed cause.
Gorgeous look for her! By the way, only 10 days until the new season of "Scandal"!
Elsewhere in Manhattan last night, Jada Pinkett Smith stepped out on the red carpet at the NY Public Library to celebrate her new role as Catwoman on "Gotham":
She rocked a Blumarine dress with a gold lapel that we're not too sure that we're loving. And paired the look with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
But she looked fierce, overall, as always.
