NEW YORK – When MTV star Farrah Abraham released her sex tape in 2013, TMZ reported she had inked a deal for close to $1 million.
But a source close to the situation told FOX411 that Abraham only got about $10,000. And now she's saying it was all one big mistake.
“It made it hard to have friends and a private life and to trust family, who I feel use me for money,” Abraham told InTouch Weekly. “If I went back in time, I would not have done it. The sex tape ruined my life!”
Abraham said the incredibly graphic sex video with porn star James Deen made her want to "hide my face and not go out or pick up my phone.”
It also helped her get cast on VH1's "Couple's Therapy."
"I’m more special than sex tapes,” she said she learned there. “If anything, now I can steer my daughter to a better future and away from the choices I’ve made."
Jasmine Waltz, a sometime actress and model most famous for dating celebrities like David Arquette and Ryan Seacrest, released her sex tape, "Real Jasmine," in 2011. She told us anyone looking to parlay her 15 minutes of fame into a big sex tape payday better watch out.
“It’s a very untrustworthy business,” she said.
But celebrity sex tape star Myla Sinanaji – “famous” for dating Kris Humphries after he was dumped by Kim Kardashian -- and who released her video with VividCeleb in September -- disagreed.
“It’s not a big deal to me. Everybody does it. I have friends that do, it but I profited on my tape,” Sinanaji said. "I feel like if other people were given the opportunity to make a tape for that amount of money they wouldn’t be so quick to judge.”
