LOS ANGELES — Distribution of the controversial Vivid Entertainment sex tape featuring singer songwriter and baseball mistress Mindy McCready has been placed on temporary hold.

The studio said it is taking legal steps to prove it has the right to distribute the title, “Mindy McCready, Baseball Mistress.” The video had been scheduled to go on sale April 19.

Vivid Founder/Co-chairman Steven Hirsch said he remains confident the studio has all appropriate legal clearances to distribute the video in which she talks candidly about the sexual performances of Yankees and Red Sox pitching great Roger Clemens and other celebrities she's been involved with over the years.

"We've decided to take a little extra time to study all of our documentation and other clearances before we proceed," Hirsch said.

"I want a chance to review the correspondence from Mindy's attorney, Adam Dread, and to prepare a proper response to the letter he has sent to us."

Vivid said McCready was one of the nine cast members in the latest season of VH1's Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. She discussed some of her relationship with Clemens on the show and she performed the title single from her recently released album, "Mindy McCready I'm Still Here," on the last episode.
