Shakur sex tape goes to private collector

And Finally

Tupac Shakur

The sex tape allegedly featuring the late Tupac Shakur has been sold to a private collector, according to a US report.¬†As previously reported, it emerged in October that porn companies were bidding for ownership of the tape, which supposedly shows Shakur receiving oral sex in 1991. The late rapper’s estate threatened to sue anyone who tried to use the recording commercially, though it wasn’t entirely clear on what grounds.

But such a case is now unlikely to go to court, as the man currently in possession of the video has, according to TMZ, decided that all porn kings are “parasites” and he has therefore sold the tape to an individual rather than an adult entertainment company. An individual who collects hip hop sex tapes presumably.
