Lindsay's Sex Tape To Hit The Internet; Tila's Rep Quits

  • Lindsay Lohan is preparing herself for the release of a sex tape that's making the rounds in L.A. — apparently, by attending a sex toy launch at the Hollywood club Voyeur in a low-cut, see-through top with no bra.
  • Supposedly a waiter with a "well-known chain restaurant" (Applebee's? Denny's?) sold a 47-second tape taken years ago of Linds frolicking naked with some dude to an "offshore porn site." "This video file is dynamite. It is pretty seedy and shows Lindsay engaged in a particular sex act which, obviously, should remain behind closed doors," says a source. "If and when it is released on the internet, via a spurious, unofficial website, there is absolutely nothing she or her lawyers can do about it." Will this finish off her career or give her a Kardashian-esque boost? [Daily Mail]
