A tape starring "Grey's Anatomy" hot doc Eric Dane, his actress-wife Rebecca Gayheart and former Miss U.S. Teen Kari Ann Peniche appeared on Gawker.com in August. While no one was seen performing sexual acts, the three were seen nude in the video.
"This is an unfortunate incident where someone stole some property, personal property, among three very good friends," Peniche's manager, David Weintraub, told ABCNews.com. "They were very good friends when the tape was filmed a few years ago. I don't know if they're good friends now."
"From what I've seen, it's a naked tape, not a sex tape," Dane and Gayheart's attorney Marty Singer told TMZ. "At most, it's three people maybe wanting to have sex."
Dane and Gayheart filed a $1 million lawsuit against Gawker Media, the Web site's parent company, for copyright infringement in September.
Where would Hilton be without her sex tape?
Called "1 Night in Paris," the video filmed by her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon was released just before her reality series "The Simple Life" debuted in 2004 and made Hilton an instant sensation.
Hilton claimed she was "out of it" during the making of the video and Salomon sued her for defamation. She countersued and was awarded more than $400,000 that she said she would give to charity.
"I never received a dime from the video," she told GQ in 2006. "It's just dirty money and (Salomon) should give it all to some charity for the sexually abused or something. I mean I so didn't do it for attention."
