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.“

Told ya that she is just a money-grubbing, famewhore slut!

These celebrities must google their names all the time to see who's posting something about them!

Ashton is a douch. Vivid needs to re-write the advertisement to read something like "In the film Brittney will give you a glimse of how she may have rocked lovers like Ashton into a new realm of raw sensual satisfaction". If Ashton indeed did her he would be screwed because Vivid would be using her experiences to advertise the product. Too bad for Ashton if he was one of those experiences - although if true I bet Brittney was better than Demi.

If you want a glimpse into what Ashton experiences every night, just rent "About Last Night" or "Disclosure". Nothing sacred there buddy.

The lawyer's letter closes by talking about Kutcher not waiving "her" rights - obviously it was recycled from another client, however I imagine Ashton was charged as if it were all newly created. So the attorney's are complaining that someone is taking advantage of him - all the while they are doing the same! Gotta love Hollywood...

I'm wondering why Demi hasn't invited her over for a threesome.

How much did he pay for this "partner" from the law firm to sign his name to what is either a form letter? Notice in the last paragraph that it says "her" instead of "his" referring to Ashton. In other words, they remembered to enter his name, but for got to change the pronoun from the last time they printed the form letter.

ROFLOL!! Don't bother printing the letter tmz, I can tell you now it's basically going to tell him to get over himself lol!!
As for the tape selling mega time if people want to see what Ashton MAY HAVE experienced, yeah right!! At least they give him the benefit of the doubt to protect their asses lol! Don't agree with these little ho's who try their best to get a married celeb/star into bed so they can run to the media the next day with their story for a mega payout and their 15 mins of fame lol!! Problem is once the claim was made it doesn't matter if Vivid print on every dvd that she claims to have screwed Ashton, they don't have to, HER story is still out there, all she has to do is give interviews and let it be known she has a dvd out there lol!!

wow finally somebody talking and saying or rather showing everybody in which universe Ashton lives. One cannot believe he's a guy with lots of honesty, since he's with Demi his carreer went up, now I guess Ashton, you'll have to change cuz you made it, and those who have it made, should always beware of what they do, also in bed. I wonder what will happen now, I am quite sure the tape is just a joke again. Maybe they are all on makin money thru the tabloids again, poor poor Ashton!

Does this confirm he "did" cheat on Demi? Either way, he has every right to protect his privacy. Obviously this woman is just another money hungry attention driven idiot who does not care about HER image. Who does this?
