TMZ: Vivid Lands Courtney Stodden Sex Tape, Star Donating Money to Charity

LOS ANGELES — Vivid Entertainment recenlty offered realty TV star Courtney Stodden a cool million bucks for her private solo sex tape — and now they've got it.

But the infamous teen bride told TMZ that she only accepted the offer because one of her best friends stole the tape and made several copies, and ... "made it clear that he will stop at nothing to double-cross me." "I've been painted into a corner," Stodden said.

Despite her angst about the reason, it’s a sure bet that Vivid would have never accepted the deal if Stodden hadn’t signed a locked tight release.

Vivid chief Steve Hirsch when making the offer hinted to Stodden that she could make a lot more than the $1 million.

But now Stodden said she’s not taking any of the money but instead giving 100 percent to animal rights or children’s cancer treatment causes.
