Tila Tequila Tries to Block Sex Video

LOS ANGELES (CN) - Tila Tequila claims a former boyfriend contacted an attorney and a "celebrity sex tape broker" to try to sell "explicitly sexual" videos she made with her ex 7 years ago. Tequila (Thien Thanh Thi Nguyen) sued her ex, Francis Ten aka Francis Falls, attorney Keith M. Davidson, and "self-proclaimed 'celebrity sex tape broker'" Kevin Blatt in Superior Court.

Tequila claims she dated Ten for about 8 months, 7 years ago. "For his birthday, Tequila treated Ten to a luxurious and expensive trip to St. Barts in the Caribbean," where they made videos "of an explicitly sexual nature." She says she asked Ten to delete the sexual material.

She claims her relationship with Ten ended 6 years ago. But she says that "Over the course of the past several months, Ten, Davidson, a disciplined California attorney scheduled to be suspended as of August 21, 2010, and Blatt, a self-proclaimed 'celebrity sex tape broker,' have contacted various individuals in an effort to market the video."

She says she has "made is abundantly clear" that she does not want them to do it, but they're going ahead with it anyway.

She seeks an injunction and punitive damages for privacy invasion, misappropriation of publicity, unfair business practices and breach of oral contract.

She is represented by Alan Gutman of Beverly Hills.

Nguyen, 28, is a model and TV personality.
