Ashton Kutcher -- Legal Threats Over Sex Tape

12/3/2010 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ashton Kutcher is furious over the release of a new sex tape featuring his self-alleged mistress Brittney Jones -- claiming the company behind the flick is illegally using his name to push the porn.

Brittney Jones Sextape

Ashton's lawyers have fired off a letter to Vivid Entertainment -- claiming they're specifically pissed over a press release for the video, which says, "Ashton's fans will undoubtedly enjoy seeing what the star himself may have experienced."

In the legal letter, Ashton's lawyers claim Vivid is infringing on the actor's "marketable celebrity identity value" -- and promise they will unleash a legal nightmare against Vivid unless they stop associating his name with the Brittney Jones sex tape.

TMZ spoke with Vivid head honcho Steve Hirsch who tells us, “We received the letter late this afternoon and I immediately forwarded it to my attorney.  We will respond accordingly.“

One glaring mistake I see here is referring to Ashton Kutcher as a "star"!

This tool is quite possibly the biggest dou-che in Hollywood. I love how he despises the paparazzi yet he used to have that God awful show "Punk'd" where he humiliated people on national tv. Even though the one where he made Justin Timberhomo cry like a school girl was a classic.

Did anyone else notice that Ashton Kutcher's own law firm referred to him as "Ms. Kutcher", Page Three, first paragraph, third line? Is Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern, LLP, some kind of shopping mall law office? What kind of idiots can't even get the gender reference to their client correct in legal correspondence, especially when that client is a very well known celebrity?

I don't blame him for not wanting his name used for this sort of thing. But it does occur to me that if he had took his ass home to his wife he wouldn't be dealing with hooker drama. There is an old saying; Lay down with dogs come up with fleas.

Q    

Do only head cases come from Iowa? Tom Arnold, self annointed sczio and drug addict, and this Punk, self annointed bi polar. What are they serving in that state? Poor Ashton, running around pulling tricks on everyone, and cant let his own HO video be pushed, knowing full well he did her multiple times. Go back to Iowa and get some treatment.

Tell the rest of its residents to wise up and quit sending us goofs like Arnold and Ashton. Idiots.
