LOS ANGELES — The five-minute hardcore sex tape of late rapper Tupac Shakur won’t be sold to a porn company as first believed.
TMZ reported that the tape was sold to a private collector because the owners didn’t want it to land in the hands of corporate porn “parasites.”
The sale price for the 1991 tape was not disclosed, but the report said bids for the unreleased background track alone is hovering around $1 million.
Sex tape broker Kevin Blatt, who saw the tape last October and confirmed that it was Shakur told XBIZ that he was surprised the sellers didn’t tell him about the sale price.
“I am happy for the sellers. They did what they could legally to unload it which usually NEVER happens,” Blatt said.
When it first hit the market TMZ reported that the tape begins with a bunch of groupies in a living room during a house party. "Tupac walks into the room with his pants down to his ankles, his shirt off ... sporting several chains.
"Tupac — whose head is shaved — pulls one of the women toward him, and she begins performing oral sex. As she does her thing, an unreleased song of Tupac's is playing in the background, as Tupac is singing along and dancing, wiggling his hips.
"And it gets even better. As the woman services Tupac, who is holding a cocktail in one hand and a blunt in another, Money B from Digital Underground walks over to him. Tupac puts his cocktail arm around Money B, continues singing and dancing ... and the woman never stops.
"As the tape ends it appears he's ready to begin sexual intercourse. It's unclear if there's another tape."
A representative for the Shakur estate told TMZ that it would block any future plans to sell the tape.
