I’m a celeb sex tape broker & I’ve seen dozens of A-listers in X-rated acts

HOLLYWOOD’s most infamous celebrity sex tape broker has recounted in an exclusive interview with The Sun how he orchestrated the release of Paris Hilton’s now famed pornographic home video, 1 Night in Paris.

Kevin Blatt, 52, claims to have seen dozens of A-list starts engaging in X-rated acts during his almost two decades working in the niche industry of the celebrity sex tape trade.

The self-described “Scandal Specialist” makes his living helping to shepherd compromising videos and images of celebrities off the internet – or, on occasion, placing them directly into the hands of the highest bidder.

While the vast majority of those materials never see the light of day, Blatt says the videos and images that have made their way across his desk over the years have varied from the tame to the downright shocking – and have featured more than 50 of Hollywood’s best-known stars.

“I’ll be driving around Los Angeles and bump into celebrities and be in places where I see people that I’ve actually seen in sex tapes that were shopped out to me,” Blatt told The Sun.

Declining to name names, Blatt coyly continued: “Let’s just say … I’ve seen gigantic A-listers that you think are straight in gay sex tapes or fetish videos.

“I’ve seen a lot of stuff – some crazy stuff that I can’t bring up because I’ve signed NDAs,” he added. “But I will say I can’t watch TV like anyone else watches is because I know too much about them.

“I’ll see a director and be like, ‘Oh, that’s the guy that’s into feet stuff‘, or I’ll see an actor and remember ‘that one likes bondage.'”

Blatt estimates he’s seen anywhere between 50 and 100 A-listers in sexually explicit images, and hundreds of other B to D-list stars in similar states of undress.

The vast majority of his dealings, he claims, involve basketball players.

“I’m not sure why but for some reason they either can’t keep it in their pants or they’re just stupid,” he laughed.

Where A-listers are concerned, Blatt said the sex tapes are most often shot before they became famous, whether they be auditioning for a role or sharing a passionate embrace with an early love.


Blatt almost accidentally forayed into the sordid trade of celebrity sex tapes in the summer of 2003, having worked for a number of years in the adult entertainment industry as a marketing executive.

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Blatt moved to Southern California with his brother Darren in 1996, vowing never to return as the pair set their sights on making it big in Tinsel Town.

He initially took up work as a telemarketer for AT&T, but dabbled on the side in music management and even DJ-ed for a time at a strip club called Pure Platinum.

Before long, Blatt and his brother soon discovered the internet’s budding porn business and transitioned into marketing and sales for adult websites.

“Before I knew it I was working with all these kids that were making thousands of dollars a month and that’s kind of how I learned the industry,” Blatt said.

“I was hired as a marketing guy for these kids, who were all basically wallflowers and introverts.

“My brother and I were the complete opposite of that – and so we sort of became the pied pipers of porn.”


Blatt and his brother adopted the monikers K-Bizzle and D-Money, and threw themselves into the LA party scene, chasing models and attending events at the Playboy Mansion.

The siblings also hosted their own lavish “Pimp and Hoe” parties in Vegas to coincide with the Adult Video News Awards, inviting stars like Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube to perform.

“I became the porn guy and promoted the s**t out of myself,” Blatt said. “My brother was a little shyer about the specifics of what we did, but I’d just shout out ‘Yeah, I sell porn. I sell adult websites. That’s what I do – I work in porn.'”

“A lot of the time people would be like, ‘What?’ because there was such a stigma about porn at the time, way more so than now.

“And there might be an occasion where I’d be on a flight and a lady next to me would hit the f**king flight attendant button, saying ‘Hey, I want to be moved if you don’t accept Lord Jesus Christ as your savior.’

“And I’d be like, ‘I don’t know what the f**k you did that was so bad you had to turn to Christ but leave me the f**k alone – and that was kind of my life.”

Living a life a younger version of himself only could’ve dreamed of, Blatt said he really made a name for himself after he successfully brokered a deal to sell a friend’s adult website for $5 million in just two weeks.

From that point onwards, he said he became known in the porn industry as the go-to marketing guy.

He also became the man major news outlets would contact for comment on sex-related news.

For instance, in a 2003 New York Times article about penis enlargement pills and email marketing, Blatt is quoted as saying: “Who is going to take a penis pill maker to court and go in front of a jury of their peers to say ‘I bought a bottle of pills to enlarge my penis, and they didn’t work?’”

It was Blatt’s – or K-Bizzle’s – professional standing in the porn business that led to a phone call from a friend later that summer who worked for the Seattle-based adult industry group Marvad, requesting his help.


As Blatt remembers it, his friend had been hanging out at a bar in Hollywood with another man who turned out to be the roommate of Rick Salomon, a professional poker player.

The roommate told Blatt’s friend that he was in possession of a sex tape showing Salomon making love to the then relatively unknown hotel heiress and LA socialite, Paris Hilton, who was soon to star in her own FOX reality TV series, The Simple Life.

Blatt was brought in to vet the video. Once he confirmed it was legitimate, and indeed of Hilton, he brokered a deal to pay the roommate $50,000 in exchange for the tape.

“I thought at the time, ‘What’s the worst that can happen?'” Blatt said. “And then I ended up getting sued for $20 million by three different people.”

Blatt remained tight-lipped on precisely how the Salomon/Hilton sex tape, which would later be named ‘One Night in Paris’, came to be released in the public domain when quizzed by The Sun.

However, according to a report by Wired, Marvad reportedly never intended to stream the video or sell it to the public as it was illegal to do so without the expressed permissions of both Salomon and Hilton.

Instead, the idea was initially to announce to the media that the company intended to sell the tape as an elaborate ruse in order to bring droves of clicks to the company’s website, former Marvad attorney Derek Newman claimed to Wired.

To prove they were in possession of a racy tape featuring Hilton, a month before The Sweet Life aired Blatt emailed a three-minute clip of the sex tape to two reporters at US Weekly and Entertainment Tonight.

I thought at the time, ‘What’s the worst that can happen?’ And then I ended up getting sued for $20 million by three different people.”

What Blatt hadn’t accounted for, was that the journalists he’d sent the videos to would send it to their friends and colleagues. The video continued to do the rounds online before winding up in the tabloid press.

Almost overnight, “Paris Hilton” became the top-searched term on Google.

Many suspected that Hilton herself was behind the leak as part of a publicity stunt – but that wasn’t the case.

A myriad of lawsuits were filed in all sorts of directions, with Salomon suing Marvad, Hilton, and her parents, and both Marvad and Salomon suing his roommate for stealing and selling the tape in the first place.

Hilton, meanwhile, managed to persuade Marvad to surrender their copy of the tape over to her on the understanding she didn’t sue them, Wired reported.

But the scandal didn’t stop there.


Weeks after the three-minute clip went viral, Saloman’s brother allegedly set up a website based in the Czech Republic called, and began selling the tape in full without Hilton’s permission.

With even more lawsuits filed, Saloman reached out to Darren Blatt who said he could connect him with people who could help him to sell the sex tape legally. Salomon also hired Kevin Blatt to help with the publicity.

The Blatt brothers then set out to get Hilton’s signature to sign off on the video’s release.

A lawyer for the reality TV star said that it was “beneath contempt” to request her client allow the tape to be sold legally.

However, by 2004, Hilton agreed to settle the case.

The details of that settlement remain unclear. A spokesperson for Paris Hilton has not yet responded to a request for comment.

Blatt and co. later released the video through Red Light District Video under the name ‘One Night in Paris’.

When quizzed by The Sun whether he managed to obtain Hilton’s signature for the tape’s release, Blatt responded: “I’ll forgive you for asking me that question, if you forgive me for not answering it.

“I think that will pretty much sum up what happened perfectly,” he laughed.

Hilton, meanwhile, has spoken often in the years since the video’s release, calling it in one interview one of the “most humiliating experiences of my life.”

In a recent documentary, she also likened the tape’s unauthorized release to “being electronically raped.”

For his part, Blatt said he escaped all the lawsuits filed against him unscathed, adding he’s “happy to report that I’ve never had a payout and settled everything amicably.

“The first argument I had to make was that I was just the messenger. And there’s that old expression, ‘Don’t shoot the messenger’, right?

“So once I made that perfectly clear, that this isn’t my tape, and I’m not the one with the gun to your head, we were able to walk in back from there.”

The One Night in Paris tape made over $20 million in initial sales.


Calling it the most popular porn video of all time, while he was unable to provide an accurate figure, Blatt estimated that it has since generated $1 billion in revenue globally.

Blatt didn’t voice remorse for his role in leaking the video, rather he saw the scandal as a blueprint he could follow in his career moving forward: either he could pressure a celebrity to release their tapes commercially or pay him to bury it for good.

“One Night in Paris gave the adult business a much-needed shot in the arm … also there were a number of different deals that were made after its release like hotel pay per view,” he said.

“There wasn’t a hotel room that you could go into that wouldn’t be showing either the Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee tape or Paris Hilton’s.

“She’s now worth a billion dollars, and I’m still renting an apartment in Toluca Lake.”


In the wake of the Hilton fallout, Blatt said his phone soon became overwhelmed with calls from jilted ex-lovers or former friends of Hollywood stars informing him of a compromising clip or pictures they were in possession of and wanted to make money from.

In one instance he was contacted by a photographer who had years-old photos of Cameron Diaz naked from the waist up as part of a bondage-themed photo shoot she’d done as a 19-year-old.

The caller also provided a release form that he claimed had been signed by Diaz herself, consenting for the images to be published.

It would later turn out that the document had been forged and the caller, later identified to be 43-year-old John Rutter, had already attempted to extort Diaz out of $2.5 million.

Playing the otherside of the fence this time, Blatt claims he persuaded Diaz’s lawyers to hire him as a consultant.

He helped to trace Rutter’s IP address and handed the information over to authorities. Rutter was arrested soon after and later sentenced to four years in jail.

Years later, Blatt said he ran into Cameron Diaz at a restaurant in Los Angeles.

Blatt said he went over to introduce himself to Diaz, informing her that he had helped arrest the man that had been blackmailing her.

“She gave me a big hug and just kept telling me, ‘thank you,'” Blatt claimed.

“She really was the sweetest person, probably one of the nicest people I’ve ever met in Hollywood.”


Then in 2006, Blatt received a call from a childhood friend about another potential sex tape-related venture involving Paris Hilton’s assistant, the then relatively unknown Kim Kardashian, and her rapper boyfriend Ray J.

Blatt agreed to meet with Ray J at a local Cheesecake Factory, who was eager to strike a deal.

A representative for Kim Kardashian has not yet returned a request for comment, but the reality star has routinely denied that she had any involvement in the video’s release.

Blatt said he offered to put Ray J in touch with someone who would pay them a million dollars in cash on the spot.

The rapper told him he had to think about it, and the pair later struck a deal with Joe Francis, a friend of the Kardashian family and the founder of the adult entertainment franchise Girls Gone Wild.

“I was annoyed to miss out on that deal,” Blatt said. “I mean I was ready to make a deal with him and bring him to Red Light, and pay him more money than he’s ever seen but he went behind our back and that’s fine.”

After the video’s release on Vivid in 2007, Kim Kardashian hastily filed a lawsuit that she quickly dropped.


Blatt’s ties to the Hilton and Kardashian tapes landed him the nickname, the “accidental pornographer.”

In the years since he has made dozens of sex tapes disappear through a negotiation process that tip-toes delicately around a California law that requires both parties depicted in a sex tape to consent to its publication.

Blatt’s morally questionable line of work usually begins with a message or a call from a third party who claims to be in possession of some potentially damaging material featuring a well-known model, actor, reality star, singer, or athlete.

In addition to X-rated images, such compromising material can also often include evidence of infidelity, drug use, or closeted sexual behavior, according to Blatt.

From there, the fixer will first vet the material, establishing whether it’s legitimate, whether or not it was captured illicitly, and who the rightful copyright owner of the material is.

Then, he will contact representatives for the celebrity the material pertains to, and attempt to obtain authorization from the participants to release it.

Failing that, he will offer to bury the material for good in exchange for money and silence.


“When people come to me with the goods, I’m more of a broker than anything else – I’m a broker of information,” Blatt explains.

“So I’ll contact their manager or lawyer and say, ‘Hey, I’m just calling to let you know that somebody has come to me with compromising material of your client. What would you like me to do?’

“And sometimes they’ll go, ‘Well, what do you want?'”

Admitting he operates in a “gray area” of the law, Blatt says his line of work doesn’t constitute blackmail or extortion because there’s no “implied threat.”

“There’s a difference in how to ask, right? You can make a formal demand or you can ask nicely,” he said.

“You can catch a lot more bees with honey than you do with vinegar. So that is how you go about doing this without it being extortion.”


Blatt said around 70 percent of his work revolves around burying tapes or other potentially damaging materials, rather than releasing them.

His professional title, the so-called celebrity sex tape broker, was not of his own choosing rather one assigned to him in the press a number of years ago.

Rather than fight the label, Blatt said he embraced it wholeheartedly.

“It’s funny because the nomenclature for what I do, calling me a ‘celebrity sex tape broker’ is f**king hilarious to me,” he said.

“I never called myself that but I was quoted as such in some article in the New York Times or Vanity Fair.

“But I have a pretty good sense of humor – and you need that in that business – so I just always laughed and was like, ‘you know what, this is going to end up on my headstone.’

“I either have to embrace this title that has been given to me and figure out how to make money from it, or I just change my name and go about my life differently.

“But it’s that nomenclature that gets me shopped all these tapes – that’s what brings people to the front porch.”


In the modern age, particularly since the proliferation of OnlyFans, Blatt said he’s been slowly transitioning out of the celebrity sex tape trade, believing multi-million dollar deals such as those involving Hilton and Kardashian are all but over.

Blatt says in the last decade or so porn has become more independent, with people cutting out the middleman and choosing to publish their content themselves.

However, he still believes intimate images of celebrities are as intriguing to the general public as they have ever been.

“There’s an insatiable appetite for it that’s never going to go away,” he said.

“People always ask me, ‘Why do you think celebrity sex tapes sell so well?’ and it’s because it humanizes them, these people we put on pedestals – it brings them down to our level.

“Everybody is the same laying down naked,” he said.
