Attorneys for troubled country star and Celebrity Rehab personality Mindy McCready have managed to temporarily block the release of a sex tape allegedly featuring McCready in bed with a mystery man.
The singer denied filming herself in the bedroom and threatened legal action against Vivid Entertainment (the company behind scandal-stirring sex tapes from Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, and Jessica Sierra) after they announced plans to release Mindy McCready: Baseball Mistress.
Although no preview video footage has been released, the blonde was also said to have described her bedroom encounters with ex-lovers Dean Cain, Roger Clemens, and Alan Jackson, in the X-rated clip.
After weighing his legal options, Vivid founder Steven Hirsch has decided to postpone Baseball Mistress’ release indefinitely. “We’ve decided to take a little extra time to study all of our documentation and other clearances before we proceed,” Hirsch explained.
Mindy’s attorney Adam Dread tells E! Online he’s confident that Vivid will soon find they do not have the legal right to release the raunchy video — and if they decide to anyway, they’ll find themselves on the receiving end of a hefty lawsuit: “After a telephone discussion with Mr. Hirsch this afternoon, we are pleased to announce that Mr. Hirsch understands that there is merit to our Cease and Desist demand. We stand by our original statement that Ms. McCready has never made any video for Vivid Entertainment, or any entertainment company of that genre, and that there is no proof of authorisation from Vivid to release any likeness of Ms. McCready, in any format. We have formally requested that they provide proof of authorisation, or refrain from using Ms. McCready’s likeness, period.”
