Bidding war sparked by Courtney Stodden sex tape
Courtney Stodden's sex tape is to be sold to the highest bidder.
The 20-year-old reality TV star - who married 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison when she was just 16 - has shot an intimate home movie that's ended up in the hands of Steven Hirsch, the boss of Vivid Entertainment, reports gossip website TMZ.
Hirsch has already seen the video, which shows Courtney performing sex acts on her own and according to the adult entertainment boss, the blonde beauty "looks amazing".
He added: "This is the most unique footage I've ever seen".
However, he would not confirm if Vivid plan to bid for the tape, and if they do, he will only be allowed to distribute the footage if he gets it signed off by Courtney.
Vivid Entertainment has been responsible for the release of a number of celebrity sex tapes, including those featuring former 'Baywatch' actress Pamela Anderson and her then-husband Tommy Lee, and reality TV star Kim Kardashian West and former boyfriend Ray J.
Two years ago, Courtney - who split from Doug in 2013 but reunited with him less than a year later - claimed she had received a $5 million offer to shoot a pornographic movie.
Speaking at the time, she explained: "Trust me, the second I turned 18, the entire porn industry turned upside down, Vivid, all of them. I turned down a $5 million porn offer about 3 months ago."
