"We've been hearing the Rihanna/Chris Brown sex tape rumors for months," said Ani Esmailian in Hollyscoop, "and it looks like the alleged tape may exist after all!" A preview of the video, featuring a woman that appears to be Rihanna in "compromising positions," was leaked online Monday, and a caption on the clip says that the full video will be released on June 22nd.
Which also happens to be "the same day Chris Brown is due to appear in court" for his alleged beating of Rihanna, said Sarah Harrison in Your Tango. "Coincidence? Perhaps. But it's looking an awful lot like Chris Brown is up to something." And Brown was also recently spotted at an Orlando Magic game with Rihanna look-alike Teyana Taylor—could she be the sex tape star?
Actually, a lot of people think "the video is from a tape recorded by porn star Lavish Styles," said Singersroom.com, "who bears a striking resemblance to Rihanna." But then again, just weeks ago nude photos—allegedly of Rihanna, and rumored to have been snapped by Chris Brown—were leaked online, so who knows what's really going on.
