Blind Item #1 - Lawsuit Blind Item

An unnamed celebrity anonymously filed suit Tuesday against a woman who he claims is threatening to release a tape of them having sex unless he pays her $2.5 million.

Identified only as Doe in the Los Angeles Superior Court complaint, the plaintiff wants an injunction preventing the defendant, her former attorney and a sex tape broker from allowing anyone to view the tape or duplicating it. He also wants the video and any copies lodged with the court pending the outcome of his lawsuit.

The woman, identified in court papers as Elizabeth Ruiz, could not be immediately reached for comment.

A celebrity website turned down her offer to sell them the tape, according to the suit, which says Doe "has worked hard his entire life to hone his skills and become one of the most talented people in the United States and the world."

He also has received many honors and accolades and "is widely recognized as the world's best at his job," according to his court papers, which state that his ability to benefit from his fame "depends on the appeal of his persona to many different people ... including families and children."

"He cannot count on this appeal if Ruiz exposes images of him in the most intimate of physical acts between a man and a woman, done in private and intended to remain private," his court papers say.

Ruiz has stated that "she wants to be the next Kim Kardashian" and hopes to be catapulted to fame and fortune with the sex tape at Doe's expense, the suit alleges. Kardashian herself was the subject of a sex tape with former boyfriend Ray J.

Doe and Ruiz met in Cancun in June and she used her cell phone to record the two of them having sex, but "agreed that she would keep the recording private," the suit alleges.

Ruiz responded "gotcha" when he reminded her after they returned to the U.S. that he wanted the tape destroyed, the suit alleges.

But in September, a "noted" sex tape broker told Doe's lawyer that Ruiz desired the broker's assistance in selling the video, the suit alleges. The next month, an attorney for Ruiz told Doe's lawyer that the defendant wanted Doe to buy the tape, or else she would "reserve her right to exploit the recording," the complaint alleges.

Ruiz's attorney said his client had shown the tape to him, her mother and the sex tape broker, according to the suit.

Another of Doe's lawyers contacted Ruiz's attorney and the latter said that regardless of the law, Ruiz wanted $2.5 million from Doe or she would release the recording, the suit alleges.

The plaintiff claims Ruiz's lawyer called his client "unpredictable" and said she "may do anything with the recording if she does not get $2.5 million." Ruiz's attorney also said there was a copy of the sex tape he made on an external thumb drive, the suit alleges.

Doe's lawyer, after learning that Ruiz had subsequently fired her attorney, sent a letter to her on Oct. 30 reminding her that his client does not consent to the release of the tape, according to the lawsuit.

"Ruiz has not responded," the suit states.

IMO, Worlds best at his job is Tom Hanks but I don't think this blind is about him.

worlds best swimmer? Michael Phelps?

Olympic Gold-inspiration for kids and American families

World's best makes me think it's an athlete.

c17 said...

Hmmmmm....wonder if it's this chick. She sure looks like she wants to be a KIm clone. https://www.instagram.com/elizabethruizxo/?hl=en

c17 said...

Yeah, but he had a rep for being a stoner douche before he got that chick pregnant & then gave the kid a ridiculous name. Are people's memories really *that* short?

Bodacious Ta-tas said...

I didn't read this as being an actor, but someone who is very well known and acclaimed in his field. Maybe Tony Robbins?

Cary said...

Donald Trump

s said...

It really does sound like an athlete. But would a summer Olympian be fucking around in Cancun mere weeks before the Games?

Guesser said...

Agree that it's Michael Phelps. He went to great lengths to rehabilitate his image, and this could put an end to that. How many people would say they were the best without argument? Someone holding a world record. Bolt is another possibility, the woman should be charged with blackmailing him, but that would make it public.

Here's an Elizabeth Ruiz who was in Cancun in June:

She showed the tape to her own mother? ewwwww....

S.D.AUNTIE said...

Thanks for the link C17. Whoevet hooked up with her needs to have his head examined.

S.D.AUNTIE said...

Whoever.

Haywood Jablomee said...

David Copperfield?

Yep said...

"So Mom, what do you think?"

"Missionary? I thought you wanted to be famous!"

Cup said...

Tom Brady?

Groaning said...

If he was stupid enough to let himself knowingly get recorded, then the moron deserves whatever happens. The wording seems to correspond with something Donald Trump would say.

s said...

She follows Vin Diesel and Leo DiCaprio on instagram.

s said...

She has pics of Cancun from June.

c17 said...

Hmmmmm......isn't Leo considered relatively "family-friendly"? He does a LOT of environmental work & I can see him doing everything in his power not to let a sex tape get out. The only scandal I can recall had to do with the funding of the Wolf of WS movie & that went away quickly.

I know a LOT of you think he's closeted (along with everyone else in H'Wood) - I'm not one of those. :-)

c17 said...

Were either of them in Cancun this past June?

texasrose said...

Whatever moron this is will get no sympathy from me. He obviously knew he was being recorded and allowed her to continue with the understanding that it would be kept private?? What a moron!!!! Well it does sound like he has enough money he can probably outbid whoever might want to buy it unless she really thinks it will make her 'famous'.

texasrose said...

agree. I wouldn't have posted mine if I had been able to see comments before I posted.

LauraOK said...

I like your Copperfield guess, Groaning! From Wiki: "When not performing, he manages his chain of eleven resort islands in the Bahamas, which he calls "Musha Cay and the Islands of Copperfield Bay"

LauraOK said...

Sorry, meant Haywood - not Groaning!

Cobe said...

Brad Pitt

Just Saying said...

I'm thinking Trump. Whoever it is, she'll probably turn up dead over the next few days.

BSR said...

Where Was Micha Strahan In June??

snitty said...

That Ruiz girl has a pic of her and Jamie Fox . I don't know when it was taken, though. (I am Instagram-challenged). And, yeah, nice catch C17

snitty said...

And, maybe it's cuz I'm old, but, damn....why do so many girls these days post a trillion pictures of them sticking their asses (ass-i?) out?

Marianne said...

Fake ass and all!!

Guesser said...

Showing the tape other own mother, her mother probably wants to be the new PMK.

Anti5ocial said...

While he's not the top one, I'd like to think it's Ryan Lochte because he's that stupid

Salaam said...

Roger Federer

inga said...

DC has his own island: bigger, cleaner & more beautiful then Cancun....

inga said...

@LauraOK: geography is not ur forte, Cancun & Bahamas r such a different islands (different languages speaking)...
P.S.travel more....

monkee said...

Donald Trump wasn't in Cancun this last summer, so unless enty changed the dates of when this happened, or the location of where it occurred, it isn't Donald Trump, although he is the only asshat that would speak about himself like that in a lawsuit that I can think of.

LauraOK said...

Inga, I travel quite a bit, and have been to both places. But thanks for the kindness, we all need a little more of that these days.

Louise said...

If it was an actor wouldn't it say so? I'm thinking something else chef, magician, sportsman?

back again said...

; )

Guesser said...

Knowing the outcome of the Hill Hogan case, why would anyone buy it now? They already know the person will go to court over it. I looked up some celebrities that were in Cancun that month, but no one would pay that much for the bunch I found.

Zip said...

Any woman under the age of 35 should be feared by men. They're terrifying fame hungry psychos

back again said...

i was thinking Tony Hawk or Shaun White a/k/a 'The Flying Tomato'...or Michael Jordan

Sasanqua said...

@inga you sound like a rude twat. Get out of the house and make real friends and maybe you won't have to resort to being a bitch on a gossip site to make yourself feel better about your sad little life

Sasanqua said...

@LauraOK Inga's a miserable person, she posts under a lot of different names but we can always tell it's her. She needs friends lol

Simon said...

Ummmm, when was trump in cancun?

LauraOK said...

Thanks, SAS! This gossip site is one of my few pleasures when I'm working online, and I only occasionally comment. I'm an English professor, and have pretty thick skin after teaching for many years. Most of my students are delightful, but occasionally I'll have a disrespectful one. I've learned over the years how to hand the responsibility of civility back to them. Some learn from that, and some don't. Either way, I've done my job, without lowering my standards :)

Sasanqua said...

@LauraOK - nice! ?

Duc said...

Isn't extortion illegal? Besides which she's a stumpy looking tranny - ew.
