When it comes to sex tapes, it’s usually a man blackmailing a woman, saying he’ll release a video to ruin her reputation and career if she doesn’t pay up – i.e what happened to Iggy Azalea.
But this time around, the shoe is on the other foot for NFL star Von Miller. According to TMZ, Miller is trying to block a woman from releasing a sex tape they shot in Cancun and she’s demanding $2.5 million…or else.
Miller filed legal docs in L.A. County Superior Court under the pseudonym “Doe,” but the documents describe him as “one of the most talented people at his craft in the U.S. and the world,” which led multiple sources to confirm that it was indeed Miller. The Denver Broncos star revealed that he met a woman named Elizabeth Ruiz during a trip to Mexico in June 2016 and the two had sex while they were alone indoors.
The woman reportedly recorded the sex session on her cell phone and when Miller reached out to her after the trip and asked her to destroy the recording, she replied, “Gotcha.” The docs also say that the woman gathered a team and tried to sell the video back to the linebacker for $2.5 million after TMZ declined her offer. However, Miller’s team shot down the request, claiming the woman was trying to extort him and is now asking a judge to block her from releasing the tape.
The judge was definitely on Miller’s side Wednesday: a temporary restraining order was issued against the woman.
