Source: 'Sexual footage' of Coco Austin not from a private sex tape

Fox411: Says pics of 'sexual footage' featuring Coco Austin posted on a gossip site is from a professional video

 

The gossip website TheDirty.com has published screen grabs from what they say is a sex tape featuring Nicole "Coco" Austin, but a source close to the situation told FOX411 the pictures are misleading.

Nik Richie, who runs the site, captioned one of the photos: “Just wanted to confirm I have reviewed hours of sexual footage of Nicole ‘Coco’ Austin. The tapes have been submitted to TheDirty.com.  Here’s a screen grab from some of the footage.  More to come…”

However, our source said the screen grabs are not from a private sex tape but from a professional video made by a production company when Austin was 18 or 19 years old.

“This is an old tape. It already aired. Nothing new or private about it," the source said. "Any attempt to put it out now is someone desperate for attention and money.”

Richie disputes this however, telling FOX411: "The footage has never been released. It’s eight hours of raw sexual acts."

Richie found himself in hot water when he posted screenshots of Hulk Hogan’s sex tape in 2012. He was threatened with a lawsuit and the stills were taken down.

FOX411 reached out to Austin but did not receive comment.
