The Spencer Pratt/ Heidi Montag sex tape video saga keeps getting a little more involved and, just when you may have thought uber-attention wrangler Spencer Pratt may be caught lying in one of his more creative endeavors to date, he gets substantiation from an unlikely source, Playboy Playmate Karissa Shannon. Although it is no secret now that Spencer Pratt, self-proclaimed Hollywood bad boy, wannabe porn star, and fame seeker, has been shopping around sex tapes of himself and his estranged wife, fellow attention-seeker Heidi Montag, it was simply assumed he got the idea to sell the videos (he says there is a library of the stuff) from desperation and a severely diminished bank account. However, TMZ reports that, according to sources close to Pratt, the idea to sell the sex tape videos came to him when he discovered a sex tape video he didn’t know existed — his wife having sex with another woman, Playboy Playmate Karissa Shannon. Oddly enough, TMZ found that Karissa Shannon admitted that the tape actually exists.
Sources told TMZ that Spencer Pratt was getting some of his belongings from the house in Malibu he once shared with Heidi Montag when he discovered a camera complete with a girl-on-girl video of his soon-to-be ex and 2009 Playboy centerfold Karissa Shannon. It was then that he got the idea that he may have a virtual gold mine of material on his hands.
Of course, selling the Heidi Montag/ Karissa Shannon sex tape video could prove problematic (Pratt has no claim of rights to the tape or its content), but he did star in hours and hours (according to Pratt) of sex tapes starring himself and his then loving wife.
Still, given Spencer Pratt’s need for embellishment and grandstanding for attention, many have doubted that the Heidi Montag sex tape videos actually exist. Heidi Montag has reportedly told others that they do not. But TMZ couldn’t reach her or her reps for comment on the Karissa Shannon video.
They did reach Karissa Shannon, who told them that the sex tape does exist. But she doesn’t believe that Spencer Pratt actually has the video. She told TMZ that if the sex tape video surfaces, she will sue.
As for Spencer Pratt and his treasure trove of sex tapes with Heidi Montag? It is being reported that his asking price of $5 million doesn’t sound unreasonable to Vivid Entertainment, the adult film producer and distributor famous for releasing the sex tapes of Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Kendra Wilkinson, and, more recently, Montana Fishburne.
Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, who starred together in the MTV reality show “The Hills,” married in 2008. Montag filed for legal separation in June.
Karissa Shannon appeared in a double issue of Playboy magazine in a shared centerfold with her twin, Kristina, in the first ever issue that was produced for a two-month period (July and August 2009). She also appeared in E! Television’s reality show “The Girls Next Door.”
