11 Celebrity Couples You Probably Didn’t Know Existed Until This Very Moment
Not quite, according to others. One source close to the situation tells FOX411 the former Teen Mom star only got about 1/100 of that amount. Thats right: $10,000, not $1 million. And Kevin Blatt, who has brokered several celebrity sex tapes himself, said Tami Erin, who once portrayed Pippi Longstockings, got the same offer. Tami Erin was offered $10K up front which is standard for Vivid, Blatt told FOX411. It is what they offer every celebrity, not a million dollars. Another adult entertainment industry insider backed up Blatts claims. In reality she (Abraham) got $10,000 upfront and 30 percent of sales, minus the cost of production,” the source said. The entire celebrity sex video genre is a lot of unsubstantiated marketing with very little truth behind it. Its all publicity. Its all hype. (FOX411 reached out to Abraham, who had no comment.) Indeed in the era of free Internet porn and the decline of the DVD, porn insiders say celebs are making less and less for having sex on camera. Paris and Kim made millions, but thats because it was a different time, Blatt said. People were buying DVDs then. Our sources say Paris Hilton made over $13 million for her tape, released in 2004, while Kim Kardashian made over $8 million for her 2007 sex tape with hip hop singer Ray J. President of Vivid Entertainment Steven Hirsch would not talk numbers, but said: “I think after doing these deals for so many years I know how to properly structure them.We aim for fair deals for all involved and if they weren’t profitable, we wouldn’t be in business for almost 30 years.I’m happy with our track record.” Jasmine Waltz, a sometime actress and model most famous for dating celebrities like David Arquette and Ryan Seacrest, released her sex tape, “Real Jasmine,” for Exquisite in 2011. She told us anyone looking to parlay her 15 minutes of fame into a big sex tape payday better watch out. Vivid told me they would give $125,000 and 25 percent of the back end, all the sales that are made.Basically, youll never see the back end after advertisement. You wont get the money.

Celebrity Cruises to launch ship-wide gaming
He refused to talk to reporters as he left court. It is the third time Barbara has been arrested over the last year. He is currently awaiting trial on allegations that he tried to blackmail his ex-wife for $200,000. In December, Nassau County District heard how he threatened to expose details of Leslie Barbara’s alleged sexual relationships, disclose compromising photos and videos and hold a press conference about the men he claimed she had slept with. Accused: Barbara is also facing trial for allegedly trying to blackmail his ex-wife Leslie (above) for $200,000 Arrested: Nassau County police assist Barbara into court in December where he was accused of threatening to expose details of his ex-wife’s alleged sexual relationships unless she paid him $200,000 He was also busted earlier this year for allegedly swiping a $1,400 Yves Saint Laurent purse from a Long Island store. That case is also ongoing. In 2011, he was suspended from practising law for failing to properly bill clients and refund their money. A panel of judges said the decision was made also due to his ‘extensive disciplinary history.’ The Daily News says records also show that he has been sued numerous times since by former clients and creditors. At the time, Barbara, who has been photographed in the past wearing $1,000 suits, said he had been sleeping on a friend’s couch. High-profile case: Barbara (left) at a probation hearing in 1995 with his client, Joey Buttafuoco, whose teenage mistress, Amy Fisher, dubbed the Long Island Lolita, shot his wife, Mary Jo, in the face One of Barbara’s most high-profile cases was that of Joey Buttafuoco who found himself at the centre of a national sensation in 1992 when his teenage mistress, Amy Fisher, dubbed the Long Island Lolita, shot his wife, Mary Jo, in the face. Fisher met Joey Buttafuoco after she took her car to his body shop in Long Island and asked him to fix it without her family finding out. She was 16 and an affair ensued. On May 19, 1992, Fisher drove to Mary Jo’s house and confronted her on her doorstep. When Mary Jo turned away, Fisher pulled out a gun, shot her and then fled the scene.

This is just too much. 6. Cobie Smulders & Taran Killam (Photo: WENN) I heard about this around the time Taran joined the cast of SNL, and I thought, Oh, theyre cute. But then I immediately forgot about them, even though theyve been married since last year. Now that weve all been reminded of them/learned about them for the first time, arent they just the cutest? 7. Kirsten Dunst & Garrett Hedlund (Photo: WENN.com) Oh, the girl whos been starring in movies for as long as I remember is dating that guy from Tron and some other stuff? Okay. Im fine with it. Carry on. 8. Rosemarie DeWitt & Ron Livingston (Photo: Nikki Nelson/WENN.com) This one might have gone unnoticed because neither of them is really well-known, but as a personal fan of both of them, I was delighted to learn theyve been married since 2009. They even star in the new film Touchy Feely together.
