Turn Over Penis-Grabby

Roy Horn
from Siegfried & Roy is LIVID over video footage currently being shopped to media outlets -- depicting the Vegas icon sexually assaulting his caretakers -- and now, he's threatening legal action if the tapes aren't turned over.

TMZ broke the story ... some disturbing video of Roy -- who's been going through rehab since a tiger mauled him in 2003 -- surfaced recently, showing Roy groping his caretakers against their will. The video is now being shopped around to the highest bidder.

We've seen the 2010 footage -- and it shows several instances of inappropriate behavior ... including Roy forcibly kissing a caretaker, grabbing two caretakers' penises, tweaking one's nipples ... and more.

Now, Roy's legal team is on the offensive -- firing off a cease and desist letter to the caretaker allegedly behind the tape deal, demanding the footage be turned over STAT.

According to the letter, the caretaker in question signed confidentiality agreements with Roy before his employment, and those agreements prohibit any kind of surreptitious video recording. It's interesting, because we're told Roy was the one who wanted the cameras because he thought people were stealing from him.

Roy claims the agreements also prohibit sharing such recordings with the media.

If the tapes aren't turned over stat -- Roy says he'll make the caretaker's life a legal hell.

It's strange that these caretakers haven't spoken up before.

roy should watch what he does and says... all it would take is a trip down to the local police precinct with a copy of the video in hand, and roy could be facing some serious sexual assault charges along with his tiger chewed face.

If those tapes are as incriminating as they say they are I suspect old Horn(y) is the one whose life is about to become a legal hell.

The guy was mauled by a tiger. He lost a great deal of blood. That may have effected his brain. He probably takes a lot of pain medications. I would think that he might get disorientated from time to time. Would someone think a video showing a Tourettes episode, or an epileptic to be relevant either? Roy Horne has been through a lot,. leave him alone!

Trying to suppress the copy of videotape is nothing new to him. Video of the moments leading up to his getting mauled by the big cat are also unavailable. Some eyewitness testimony suggests that an obviously drunk Roy used his microphone to wallop the tiger on the nose a few times, hard. Well, I guess that got kitty's attention, didn't it? And in their final stage show, where they come out with the same tiger that bit him before, ROy was careful to always both keep his distance and have a barrier between him and the cat that got him before. Old Roy damn well knew that the big cat would remember exactly who it was that bruised his nose years before. It was so obvious, proved guilt.

If the tape was from the equipment Horn had installed himself it is quite likely it has taken these guys a couple of years to get hold of it. That may explain the delay

Don't know the facts of this particular situation, but I have a general comment: It's not right that the rich and powerful can abuse confidentiality agreements to get out of responsibility for their behavior. No one should have free rein to grab people like that.
