Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz issued a statement on the band's official Website commenting on the leaked "Pete Wentz Sex Tape".
A YouTube video of Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz apparently having sex with an unidentified woman has made its way all over the net. But don't come to judgment so quickly for the tape "isn't real." Referring to the quoted words, the tape actually is a preview of a scene taken from an untitled short movie.
The 30 seconds clip, dubbed "The Pete Wentz Sex Tape," surfaced on gossip blog PerezHilton.com and has subsequently made it's way across the internet.
Regarding the sex tape, the 28 year-old rocker quickly issued a statement on the band's Website, hoping to clear the origins of the video while at the same time trying to avoid further rumors concerning it.
Claimed the sex tape to have been around for more than a year, Wentz said "Just wanted to put the word out on the streets/the internet. there is no pete wentz sex tape in existence. about a year and a half ago i took part in an indie gore/horror short film as a favor to my friend nathan- called goodnight moon. either way im not into being an actor or having a sex tape either sooooooooo, hopefully u can deal with it...."
Despite Wentz's comment, PerezHilton site maintains the short video, which contains only partial nudity, as just a "preview" of the full length film.
As of Wentz's longtime girlfriend, Ashlee Simpson, the singer has just yet made any comment on that encounter.
