LOS ANGELES – The legal squabble over the kinky Cameron Diaz S&M video that recently surfaced on the Internet escalated this week with allegations that Seth Warshavsky, the former head of online adult company, Internet Entertainment Group, is allegedly linked to the distribution of the video.

Titled, “She’s No Angel: Cameron Diaz,” the Internet version of the video features the actress long before she hit super stardom with blockbuster hits like, "There's Something About Mary" and “Charlie’s Angels.”

In the video, Diaz is seen topless in S&M garb with another scantily clad female and a loin-clothed male. The tape was shot by cameraman John Rutter when Diaz, now 31, was a 19-year-old aspiring actress. The 30-minute video also consists of outtakes taped during a Rutter photo shoot.

Diaz and Rutter have been battling over rights to the tape for nearly a year and on July 9, Diaz and her attorney from Los Angeles-based law firm Lavely & Singer sent a cease-and-desist letter to the owners of Scandal-inc.com, the Caribbean-based website that first posted the footage of Diaz for $39.95 per download.

Rutter was originally thought to be associated with Scandal-Inc., although he has strongly denied any affiliation.

However, according to an insider source, Warshavsky, who is responsible for releasing the Pamela Anderson-Tommy Lee sex tape over the Internet in 1997, is somehow involved.

“My own research reveals that the offshore people involved with the Cameron video are tied to Seth,” the source told XBiz, requesting anonymity. “I can’t say how he’s involved. I found out through emails, anonymous tips, going back and forth."

The well-connected source claimed to be in contact with Warshavsky in Thailand, where he has reportedly been living since leaving the U.S. in 2002. An XBiz effort to contact Warshavsky was unsuccessful.

According to the Fox News Channel’s website, in September 2003, Rutter, was charged with felony counts of alleged extortion against Diaz, attempted grand theft, perjury and forgery.

“Some of the guys [reputedly involved with the Diaz video] are offshore, and you can’t do anything about them,” the source told XBiz.
