The Heidi Montag sex tape has an asking price of $5 million apparently. According to TMZ, Spencer Pratt is selling the Heidi Montag sex tape for a cool five million, or at least he is trying to sell it for that price, and is currently in negotiations with Vivid Entertainment. It’s an unbelievable price for this tape, but it seems that Pratt feels he has enough footage to ask for almost anything he wants. So what is the inspiration Pratt found for trying to sell a sex tape starring himself and his wife? Pratt tells TMZ, “When I realized how much Kim [Kardashian] was making, my logic is this is the best thing I can do for my ex-wife. Kim is on the cover of Allure right now. Heidi isn’t on the cover of Allure.”
TMZ has been at the forefront of reporting this story since it broke earlier in the week, and it is one of those stories that doesn’t really seem all that surprising in the end. Pratt has always appeared like one of those guys that was just five minutes away from selling out his wife in order to make another dollar, and he is in negotiations to present the world with the ultimate violation of privacy. From the sound of things, he has so much material of the couple that he could sell several sex tapes, but he is giving everyone a “bargain” by compiling all of the footage. Yes, the ultimate question right now is, “why in the world did Montag agree to do so many videos?” Maybe she didn’t, and maybe some of this footage was taken without her permission.
It is really hard to believe that someone would pay Pratt $5 million for this footage, even if the thought was that they could turn around and sell millions of copies online. The price would have to be astronomical for them to turn a profit on this, and you can bet that there are dozens of websites that would love nothing more than to make that profit. In the end, Pratt will probably sell the footage for less than the full $5 million, and Montag will end up getting a cut of it. Montag’s cut will be probably be kept under wraps, much in the same way that Kendra Wilkinson tried to keep quiet that she was being paid for the distribution of her sex tape earlier this year. We certainly haven’t heard the end of this story, and a lawsuit from Montag will probably be forthcoming.
