X-rated flick has reportedly been flogged, but won’t be publicly released
The sex tape allegedly featuring the rapper Tupac Shakur has been sold to a private collector, according to reports.
TMZ claims that the former owner of the tape, which was reportedly made in 1991 and features an unnamed woman performing oral sex on the rapper during a party, decided not to sell to any pornographic companies after describing them as “parasites”.
It is currently unknown how much the tape was sold for, but it was previously reported that two rival pornographic companies were ready to pay over $ 150,000 (£98,000) for the film.
Tupac’s family have made it clear they do not want the X-rated flick to be distributed and have insisted that they “will sue anyone who tries to sell a Tupac tape”.
According to an official spokesman for Tupac’s estate, only his family can authorize the use of Tupac’s image for commercial use and they are not prepared to allow his image to be used for this.
The rapper’s mother Afeni Shakur has also reportedly told her representatives: “Get the legal team ready because we will not allow someone to put it out.”
In October, drinks company NOHO were ready to pay over over $ 1 million (£642,000) for the rights to the unreleased track which is playing in the background of the tape. They wanted to use the song as the theme tune for a new commercial advertising a drink that promises to ensure that people don’t have hangovers after a night out

The sex tape allegedly featuring late hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur has been sold to a private collector, according to a U.S. report.
The explicit footage, which was shot in 1991, was recently made public and purportedly shows the singer topless at a house party while he receives oral sex from a female groupie.
Several porn company bosses subsequently wanted to buy the tape from the unknown owner, but administrators of Shakur’s estate threatened legal action against anyone who tries to profit from the star’s image through the sex tape.
Now the mystery owner has decided not to pass the tape to a big firm as he believes the porn bosses are “parasites” and has instead sold it to an individual, reports TMZ.com.
It is unknown how much the video was sold for.
