Making another run at the Super Bowl may be the least of Von Miller’s problems.
The Broncos linebacker is trying to stop the distribution of a sex tape made in Mexico in June, according to a new report from the Smoking Gun that has been confirmed by other outlets.
In court docs obtained by the website — in which Miller is referred to as John Doe — Miller’s legal team alleged Elizabeth Ruiz wants “to be the next Kim Kardashian,” and has threatened to sell the explicit video unless the reigning Super Bowl MVP shells out $2.5 million.
Lawyers for Miller also note the actress “contacted a TMZ entity to try to ‘sell’ the recording,” in addition to contacting a “widely-known ‘sex tape broker'” to help. Miller’s attorneys claim that he and Ruiz agreed not to make the tape public, and she is now reneging on that promise.
Miller got a break in the case Monday, when Los Angeles judge Amy Hogue issued a temporary restraining order against Ruiz, preventing her from copying or distributing the video.
Miller has yet to comment.
