Mini Me Settles Law Suit Against TMZ Regarding Sex Tape

Verne Troyer (Mini Me in Austin Powers) settled the lawsuit he filed against TMZ and Kevin Blatt for publishing clips from his sex tape with ex-girlfriend, Ranae Shrider. The settlement made on Friday (July 18, 2008) amounted to a hefty $20 million dollars.

The footage hit the internet last month and the actor successfully had the tape removed from celebrity website TMZ.com. He sued the website and Kevin Blatt (SugarDVD distributor) claiming violation of his rights by publishing clips from the film.

Troyer’s attorney, Edwin McPherson, revealed that his client’s legal battles are not yet over. They are now planning to amend the lawsuit to prevent Ranae Shrider from releasing the tape. Shrider insists that the video was shot from her equipment and claims partial ownership of the tape. She confessed to the deliberate handing of the video to the media to vindicate Troyer’s alleged infidelity. Of course, the actors denies ever being unfaithful to her.

Now, if you think I have the actual video pasted in my post, stop scrolling down now. This post is weird enough as it is. I can’t get over the idea that even Mini Me could possibly cheat on his partner. Where is the world headed for . . .
