Eric Dane Sues over Nude Tape

Eric Dane and wife Rebecca Gayheart aren’t too happy about the home video of them that leaked on the internet recently. So the couple has decided to put matters into the court’s hands.

Dane and Gayheart just filed a lawsuit against Gawker Media, LLC and journalist Mark Ebner over the video that shows the couple nude with Kari Ann Peniche.

Sources tell Radar that the suit alleges Ebner brought the tape to gossip site Gawker, which posted it last month. The defendants were served with a takedown notice the same day the tape was posted but the lawsuit states:

"In brazen disregard for Plaintiffs' legal rights and personal privacy, Gawker not only refused to comply...but went on to maliciously distribute an uncensored copy of the Video."

Dane and Gayheart registered the tape with the United States Copyright office. The lawsuit claims the couple has been damaged in excess of $1 million.

Wow! They take their home videos seriously! Maybe they should think twice before getting naked and shooting a bizarre video. Those things always have a way of landing on the internet.
