LOS ANGELES — The controversial sex tape featuring Brittney Jones, the alleged mistress of celebrity Ashton Kutcher, is being released by Vivid Entertainment after the studio reached an agreement with the performer and decided not to use Kutcher’s name to market the film.

Vivid said Jones had originally sought to block the release of "Brittney Jones Confidential," which the company obtained from a third party but changed her mind after meeting with Vivid founder and co-chairman Steven Hirsch.

“I made the decision to work with Vivid after meeting with Steve Hirsch and looking at documents that give Vivid the right to release the sex tape,” Jones said in a statement.

She added, “The video was coming out whether I liked it or not and I didn’t want everyone else to make money from this private home video except me. If Kim Kardashian can survive and in fact do even better after a sex tape scandal, I guess I can, too.”

Hirsch and Jones met for at a Hollywood coffee shop earlier this month and he presented her with a proposal under which she would also participate in the marketing of the DVD.

Vivid said she failed to respond immediately, but would have moved forward with distribution whether she cooperated or not.

Vivid also received a separate cease and desist letter from Kutcher’s attorneys and said after internal discussions and consultation with counsel, the company decided not to use the A-lister’s actual name in connection with the sex tape.

According to Vivid, the tape shows Jones in an extended sexual romp with a "former boyfriend."

“The response to this movie has been phenomenal,” said Hirsch. “We’re excited about getting it out so that everyone can see how sizzling Brittney actually is.”

The movie is in stores nationwide and is available at Vivid.
