Hirsch told XBIZ that he received a letter from Brooks Holcomb that stated the tape was "not created or intended for sale or public distribution." Hirsch and Vivid still intend to sell the tape starting Monday.
“We believe we [have the rights to distribute the tape],” Hirsch said. “We wouldn't have moved forward if we didn't think we had the right to do so.”
Hirsch told TMZ.com that "[Vivid was] approached by a third party, who brought us footage of Shauna having sex with her current boyfriend and we were immediately interested in acquiring it.”
The boyfriend in the tape is believed to be model Greg Knudson.
“Shauna Sand Exposed” comes at an opportune time for the model/actress to cash in on its sale. She’s featured in “Leave it to Lamas,” a new E! Entertainment reality show centered on ex-husband Lorenzo Lamas and his family.
"Isn't that convenient that her tape just happened to be leaked the day after my show premiered,” Shayne Lamas, Sand’s former stepdaughter, told TMZ. “I just feel bad for my little sisters.”
Sand has three young daughters with Lamas that are not part of the TV show.
Sand was Playboy’s Playmate of the Month in May 1996.
