Michael Phelps

Alleged 'Ex-Girlfriend' Is

Ready for Her Porno Close-Up

12/22/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

121914_taylor_chandler_launchThe formerly intersex woman who claims she was nailing Michael Phelps ... is on the verge of getting nailed in her first porno ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Taylor Lianne Chandler is in Hollywood fielding an offer from Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch -- who tells us he wants her to star in one of those ever popular porn parodies.

Taylor made headlines last month when she claimed she and Michael dated after meeting on Tinder. You'll recall ... Taylor was born with male and female organs, but says she's since had surgery. 

We're told the proposed porn would be loosely based on their alleged relationship. Think, "When Harry Met Sally" ... with way more nudity. And real sex.

We got Taylor on her way into Vivid HQ, and she told us she's still in the "wine and dine me" stage of negotiations. As for compensation ... she's more interested in back end, than getting huge money up front.

Wiz Khalifa

Sex Tape Off the Market

12/17/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Wiz Khalifa Porn
Sorry, celebrity porn fans ... looks like the tape featuring Wiz Khalifa and a Playboy model will not see the light of day ... because she's had a change of heart about selling it.

TMZ first reported ... Khalifa and Carla Howe filmed a home porn which Howe tried hawking, but Khalifa pitched a fit.

According to our sources, Howe had a meeting set with Vivid Entertainment -- which was prepared to make a big offer -- but she was a no-show.

We're told Wiz and Carla talked it out and eventually agreed not to release the tape. We don't know the terms of the agreement.

That's a little cynical, but ...

Mama June

I'm Not Spreading for Vivid

EXCLUSIVE

Mama June
will not copulate for cash on camera ... no matter how much money is thrown at her.

The "Honey Boo Boo" matriarch says she would never ever consider Vivid Entertainment's offer for June and Sugar Bear to do the dirty and possibly make north of $1 million.

June says, "I have more respect for myself and my kids and my family," adding, "It ain't happening, not even for a zillion dollars."

As for Sugar Bear ... times may be tough but he feels the same way. He says he would never entertain the idea, regardless of how much they throw at him. 

And get this ... we're told Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch is blown away by the attention his offer has received. He's more interested than ever ... but he will probably have to look elsewhere ... just don't do the whole bagel thing with Danielle Staub, please.

Six-Figure Offer for Sex Tape

Wiz Khalifa Playboy Model Sex Tape

Wiz Khalifa
's got a lot of problems -- about six figures worth -- the Playboy model he banged last week is close to cashing in big time on a sex tape ... but there's just one hang up.

Our porn sources tell us vixen Carla Howe is very close to making a deal with Steve Hirsch at Vivid Entertainment. Carla's totally down to sell the footage for the right price. Problem is ... if Wiz doesn't sign off ... Vivid can't release the porno.

TMZ broke the story ... Wiz and Carla hooked up last week, took a bunch of pics, and -- she says -- shot footage of their bang sesh. Wiz admits doing the deed, but claims he had no idea it was being recorded. 

We're told Carla's footage shows Wiz looking right into her lens, and shooting with his own phone camera. It's possible, we guess, he doesn't remember -- dude smokes kush like a chimney.   

But it makes no diff -- sources close to Wiz tell us he's not interested in the sex tape going public.

Then again ... everyone has their price, and Hirsch has a great track record with sex tapes ... said Kim Kardashian, Ray J, Farrah Abraham, Mimi and Nikko.

Mama June and Sugar Bear

$1 Million for Hillbilly Sex Tape

EXCLUSIVE

Mama June Sex Tape

Mama June may have bugs in her feet, but she's still sexy enough to pull a $1 million paycheck if she gets down in the mud with Sugar Bear in an epic, redneck sex tape.

Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch has reached out to MJ and SB, offering them up to $1 MIL and maybe even more if they bang on camera for Vivid's BBW site. Hirsch says to June, "We  believe you would fit into that category."

And Vivid will let June call the shots ... assuming Sugar Bear can perform multiples.

We tossed around some titles, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's Mom," "Slap the Thigh, Ride the

Wave," "It Must Be Jelly 'Cause She Ate All the Jam" and our favorite, "What's Eating Mama June?" We want more suggestions, please. 


The question ...

Ray J

Kim's Vajayjay Gave Me a Huge Payday

EXCLUSIVE

Ray J Kim Kardashian Ass PhotoRay J has a knack for making money when Kim Kardashian gets naked ... and he hit the jackpot again with last week's nude photos.

The photos triggered renewed interest in "Kim K Superstar," and our sources at Vivid Entertainment say sales of the video have dramatically spiked ... so much so, Ray J will pocket $50K from the last week alone ... way up from what's he's been getting.

Ray has been getting around $90K every 3 months, so this is a real ass-tronomical increase.

Steve Hirsch, president of Vivid Entertainment, tells TMZ, the most recent spike makes "Kim K Superstar" the biggest selling celebrity sex tape of all time.  

Until last week, the title holders were Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee.

Iggy to Porn Co.

Use My Name and

I'll Screw You!

EXCLUSIVE

Iggy Azalea
's lawyers are throwing the kitchen sink at a major porn company ... now claiming Vivid will get its dirty corporate ass sued if it dares to market her alleged sex tape ... because the name "Iggy" can only be used by Iggy.

It seems a sex tape exists, even though her lawyers deny it.  Initially they said it was a fabrication ... then said if it does exist she may have been a minor.  The "sex partner" -- rapper Hefe Wine -- told TMZ Live Friday there is indeed a tape and she knew about it and consented.  And he says she was NOT a minor ... he says he met her when she was 18.

Now Iggy's lawyers have fired off a letter to Vivid -- obtained By TMZ -- in which they say the name "Iggy" is gold ... protected by U.S. Trademark. 

So maybe Vivid could market the tape this way -- STEAMY SEX TAPE, FEATURING SHMIGGY SHMEZELIA AND HEFE WINE!

Vivid is unimpressed, restating it's desire to market the tape.

BTW ... sources close to Iggy say she feels betrayed by her ex-BF.

Iggy Azalea Sex Tape

My Ex Is Selling It for Revenge

EXCLUSIVE

Iggy Azalea Porn
Iggy Azalea's legal team now says it may indeed be her in that sex tape ... but there's also a chance she was under 18 when it was shot.

It's a big change from what her people told TMZ just 2 days ago ... that NO Iggy sex tape exists. Now it sounds like it does ... but with legal peril.

We broke the story ... a video purportedly showing Azalea and an ex-boyfriend is being shopped to porn giant, Vivid Entertainment. 

But then Iggy's lawyers now tell us ... any sex video would be the work of a "spurned business suitor" -- aka the ex-BF -- who's just trying to damage her image and career out of revenge. They also told us any footage was possibly shot "without her knowledge or consent" ... kind of a weird statement -- either it was or it wasn't. The lawyers also say it's possible it was shot when she was a minor.

So, let's review Iggy's sex tape position: It's NOT me ... it MIGHT be me ... IF it's me, an evil ex-business partner is out to get me ... and I might be jail bait ... so, I dare you to release it.

Seven-Figure Offer for

Alleged Sex Tape

EXCLUSIVE

0910_iggy-azalea_xx_composite4Iggy Azalea allegedly recorded a sex tape that could make her millions upon millions -- according to a Hollywood porn boss, but Iggy tells TMZ she can't cash in on the vid ... because it's NOT her!

Vivid honcho Steven Hirsch tells us he has seen some footage which he says appears to be Iggy with an ex-boyfriend -- and from the little he's seen ... he's sure it could easily top Kim Kardashian's legendary sex tape in sales.

Hirsch says he's already reached out to the 24-year-old "Booty" rapper to open negotiations on what could be a multi-million dollar deal -- but the problem is Iggy's camp says Hirsch's eyes are playing tricks on him. They tell us the I-G-G-Y is not the chick on vid doing the dirty ... and they're ready to sue over the alleged footage.   

Of course, without Iggy signing off on it ... the vid can't be legally released. It also means she won't collect years and years of mailbox money ... like Ray J still does.

Porn Bill

Proposal To Ban

Shoots Without Condoms in Cali

8/6/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0805_xx_condom_law_composite
California may become a condom-mandated state when it comes to porn ... and the stakes involve hundreds of millions of dollars, AIDS, syphllis, gonorrhea and other STDs.

The California State Assembly has just passed a bill requiring condoms in all porn shoots.  The author, State Assemblyman Isadore Hall, III, tells TMZ ... it's all about workplace safety.  He says STDs are out of control in the porn industry.

Hall cites a UCLA study, which shows 11% of female porn stars who have sex with males who don't wear condoms contracted gonorrhea and 15% tested positive for chlamydia.  We've checked and can't find any documented HIV cases in the straight adult porn industry in the last decade.

Porn honchos tell us ... they are fleeing California.  Vivid Prez Steve Hirsch tells us ... his company currently does not produce movies in L.A. County -- where there's currently a mandatory condom law.  He says the current testing procedures are more than adequate.

One porn exec tells us ... the county has lost around $100 million a year.  Fact is ... we checked with the agency that issues permits for porn shoots.  480 permits were issued in 2012.  After the condom law passed, the number plummeted to 40 in 2013, and so far in 2014 ... only 30.


Assemblyman Hall says the porn companies are full of BS ... he says they can digitally remove condoms from the flicks and says, "There's an app for that." 

Hall's bill has gone to the State Senate.

So we gotta ask ...

Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch sent a letter to Casper ... asking him to play the lead love interest in an XXX film featuring the transsexual with whom he was rumored to have an online fling.

Hirsch says Sofie Vissa is locked and loaded for a film called, "Sofie on the DownLo" ... and Hirsch wants Casper to get it on with Vissa in the company's first-ever transsexual sex tape.

We're told Casper is being offered around $200,000 -- with big back end potential and the possibility of a sequel, "Casper, the Friendly Host."

Casper has not acknowledged any sort of relationship with Sofie.

It may be the most awesome wedding gift of all time ... Ray J is giving Kim Kardashian and Kanye West a $47K check ... representing 4 months of his 2014 profits from the epic porn tape with Kim.

It's breathtaking on 2 levels -- that Ray J has such humongous cajones, and that the tape is still raking in a fortune after 7 years.

Here's the breakdown of the wedding gift.  Mind you, this is just Ray J's cut:

-- January  $6,135.60
-- February $20,097.31
-- March $9,674.76
-- April $10,931.52
-- TOTAL:  $46,840.13

Now get this ... sources from Vivid Entertainment tell us the tape has grossed $50 MILLION!

Remember, we're told Kim gets AT LEAST as much as Ray J, though we don't know exactly how much.

We've reached out to Kim to see if she'll accept Ray's gift, but so far no word back. We're told ... if she doesn't want it he'll donate the money to her favorite charity.

Ray J -- yes, that's his wallet AND he's happy to see you.

EXCLUSIVE

Mimi Faust Sex Tape
The "Love & Hip Hop" sex tape has overtaken the Kim Kardashian skin flick in popularity  -- in fact it's already the most pirated sex tape of all time .... according to the porn company behind its release.

The full length L&HH sex tape was officially released at midnight -- and a rep for Vivid tells TMZ ... in just 9 hours, the company sent out more than 1,200 cease-and-desist letters to websites that were illegally hosting it.

Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch isn't messing around either -- telling us, "If you even try to illegally download this tape we will come after you full force. We have three full-time attorneys prepared and ready to go."

As we reported, the anticipation leading to the tape's release has been insane -- pre-sale numbers were through the roof ... totaling roughly $400,000.

Since the release at midnight, we're told Vivid's website has been raking in new memberships -- averaging 15 new joins every MINUTE.
