Despite waging a legal battle to bar a porn entertainment company from releasing her sex tape, Kendra Wilkinson secretly tried to shop the graphic footage herself, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Documents acquired by RadarOnline.com confirm that the Playboy pinup was in the process of releasing the tapes herself a year and a half ago! According to the documents, a company (which Wilkinson would own and control) would be formed and Wilkinson’s team would shop the tape around soliciting offers. Wilkinson would also be able to mandate how the tape would be edited before it was sent to potential buyers.
While several media outlets cited sources claiming the blonde beauty is “devastated” and “humiliated” by the tapes potentially going public and worried it will harm her marriage to Hank Baskett, RadarOnline.com has also learned that Wilkinson was figuring out a way to release them herself well into her relationship with the professional football player and even after the couple’s engagement was announced.
Also included in the document is a section mandating that Playboy and Hugh Hefner be informed of any potential agreement to sell the footage before the agreement is settled.
Despite her prior motivation to publicly release the footage herself, Kendra clearly has issues with someone else doing it. Her current lawyer Yael E. Holtkamp fired off a cease and desist letter to Vivid Entertainment in hopes of stopping the release of the tapes. “The video is private and highly confidential taken for private use and not for public disclosure,” the letter said. “Any exploitation of the video would be a gross violation of Miss Wilkinson’s constitutional and common law rights of privacy.”
Vivid fired back saying it still planned to distribute the tape, which they have dubbed Kendra Exposed, by the end of May. “We know that Kendra has millions of fans and we feel that it’s rare to find well-produced, hardcore footage of a star of her magnitude,” Steve Hirsch, founder and co-chairman of the company, said.
Kendra’s lawyers did not return repeated requests for comment.
