A woman who claims to be involved in a video showing Scott Stapp and Kid Rock with several strippers has sued Stapp for invasion of privacy.
A woman who claims to be involved in a video showing Scott Stapp and Kid Rock with several strippers has sued Stapp for invasion of privacy. The woman, identified as "Jane Doe" in a lawsuit filed in Miami on Thursday, said she believed the video would remain in Stapp's private possession. But a clip from the video turned up on the Internet.
The lawsuit seeks to prevent sale of the video and asks for unspecified damages, alleging the woman suffered emotional distress. "For all purposes, she is the star of the females in the video," the lawsuit said.
Stapp claims the tape, made in 1999, was stolen from him. The former lead singer of Creed and Kid Rock have won a temporary court order in Michigan preventing adult video company Red Light District from distributing or promoting any part of it.
Red Light, which sold the infamous Paris Hilton sex tape in 2004, had displayed a 40-second preview clip of the video on its Web site. The company has said the tape came from a third party but denied it was stolen.
The tape was released just days after Stapp married former Miss New York Jaclyn Nesheiwat in Miami on Feb. 10. Stapp, 32, says the tape was made soon after he was divorced from Hillaree Burns.
He said he previously told his new wife about having a wild year and that she accepts the tape as part of his past. "You think it's part of your rock'n'roll memories," Stapp told the Associated Press in a recent interview. "I should have burned that tape."
