'Mini Me' Sues Ex-Girlfriend Over Sex Tape
Headline Legal News | 2008/08/04 07:32
Verne Troyer, the actor who played "Mini Me" in the Austin Powers movies, wants $20 million from his ex-girlfriend, who allegedly leaked part of their sex tape leaked to gossip Web site TMZ.com before trying to sell the entire tape to the highest bidder.

Troyer says his former girlfriend, Renee Schriber, insisted that the couple make the explicit tape last year. Troyer claims that the tape was only supposed to be for personal use, but last June he heard that a portion of it was playing on the front page of TMZ.

According to the federal complaint, Schriber called Troyer "in tears, expressing her absolute horror that a portion of the videotape was being broadcast on the internet." Schriber said that the tape must have been stolen from the couple's house.

But the story Schriber allegedly told the press was a little different. Schriber gave interviews "to any news agency and television outlet that would listen to her," the lawsuit states, claiming that Troyer had filmed her having sex with him in secret, that she had no idea the tape existed, and did not know how it had gotten into the hands of the public.

Based on Schriber's story, Troyer sued TMZ, and got a temporary restraining order. However, TMZ submitted Schriber's declaration, given under oath and penalty of perjury, admitting that she had filmed the video herself, with her own equipment. Schriber also admitted that she co-owned the copyright to the tape and had given it to TMZ, along with a license to display a clip of the tape. Troyer says Schriber probably leaked the clip as a trailer for the whole tape, which he says she intended to sell all along.
