An unidentified man claimed to have obtained a sex tape of them and is shopping it around to the highest bidder, with the selling price starting at a whooping $2 million.
The rumor mill is buzzing again concerning Madonna's alleged affair with Alex Rodriguez. Greater than their much talked romance, rumor has it that they have a sex tape and an unidentified guy who obtained the tape is shopping it around to the highest bidder.
X17 Online, the first to report that matter, claimed in its site that a friend of Rodriguez and Madonna through Kabbalah offered them to use her apartment for meeting up at an undisclosed afternoon. Upon hearing that, the guy then quickly installed a hidden camera in the living room, intentionally pointed its lens on the sofa.
Fortunately, Madonna and Rodriguez were both captured on the sofa, "going at it with some 'I did not have sexual relations with that woman'-type action," the guy claimed. There has yet evidence that the sex tape does exist, but X17 Online stated they already received emails informing them about the existence of the tape last week and furthermore asked them to make it public for the guy.
At the same time though, the guy's brother-in-law started shopping the sex tape around to a number of U.K. tabloids, one of them reportedly was the Daily Mirror which reportedly offered to pay $2 million for the tape.
Despite plans to distribute the sex tape, legal experts revealed that an intention to do so could backfire for the man himself as he could end up facing prosecution for voyeurism and burglary.
Speaking on that encounter, one expert said, "If footage was obtained in this way it would be an outrageous invasion of privacy. But more than that he would not have had his friend's consent to install the camera and must have entered the apartment without approval to hide it. That is burglary. He would be prima facie guilty of voyeurism. Instead of making a million he'd be going to jail for a few years. Even if the video existed it would probably be seized by the courts."
Madonna's lawyers said that they were "aware" of the sex tape claims but refused to comment further.
