LawFuel – Singer Scott Stapp has won a court battle to prevent the release of a hard-core film showing him engaging in wild behaviour with Kid Rock.
Stapp, a former Creed vocalist, reached a settlement with WW Red Light District – an adult film company famed for releasing raunchy unapproved celebrity videos – to prevent the release of the 1999 sex tape, filmed during a joint tour in Miami.
On Friday the former Creed frontman settled his invasion-of-privacy lawsuit against the film company, which he had accused of unlawfully selling downloads of a videotaped romp involving Stapp, Kid Rock and four groupies.
While Stapp’s attorney, William Sayegh, refused to disclose just how much money his client will receive, only saying that the litigation was resolved “in Scott Stapp’s favor.”
Kid Rock obtained a preliminary injunction in February 2006 barring Red Light from posting the video on the creatively named Websites it snatched up for that purpose—kidrocksextape.com and scottstappsextape.com.List your legal jobs on the LawFuel Network
