As Tulisa is accused of cashing in on her internet romp, does leaking a bonk vid lead to success? TALE OF THE TAPE KIM KARDASHIAN PARIS HILTON
MOST of us would love to spend one night in Paris – and if you’ve seen Miss Hilton’s legendary sex tape you’ll understand why!
The New York socialite and former boyfriend of Rick Salomon raised the bar when it came to sex tape filming techniques, capturing much of the saucy action in night vision.
But there are also parts of the skin flick in colour, like the bit which features a close-up of Paris deepthroating her lucky fella.
The vid was released in 2003, shortly before the premiere of Paris’s telly series with best pal Nicole Richie.
Before the tape appeared online, few outside of Manhattan’s elite social scene had heard of Paris Hilton.
Now she has her own fashion line and is reportedly worth a massive £100million, so her brief foray into the world of amateur X-rated entertainment looks inspired. GORGEOUS babe Tulisa Contostavlos has been accused af using her sex tape row to boost her career.
The 23-year-old N-dubz singer was outraged when the film of her performing a sex act was leaked online. But critics say she's cynically cashed in.
Tulisa denies this and has taken out an injunction to block the saucy footage being uploaded on the Net.
She’s also suing her ex, who filmed the tape, for £100,000 for alleged breach of privacy and confidentiality.
Even so, the film has given Tulisa’s solo career a boost, and her debut single Young is being blasted out by all the country’s major radio stations ahead of its release on May 7.
As she shoots to the top with her solo career, we’ve asked ourselves if a sex tape scandal is a surefire way to success.
