Eric Dane's Naked Video Subject of LAPD Investigation

Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart’s reps both came forward yesterday to say that their clients’ leaked video was not by any means a sex tape.

Dane’s rep said the tape was "a private, consensual moment involving a married couple, shot several years ago, which was never intended to be seen by the public."

He continued, "Although the participants are nude, the tape is not a 'sex tape.' It is a private tape made for only my clients' personal use, and nobody has the right to exploit it. If anyone exploits the tape, they will be violating my clients' rights and will be exposed to significant liability."

That may be all well and good, but not in the eyes of the LAPD! The home video is now subject to a police investigation. Law enforcement officials released a statement to Radar saying:

“On July 30, 2009, an unnamed source provided the LAPD’s Detective Support and Vice Division, with a copy of a DVD. According to the source, the DVD contained images that could link celebrities engaging in illegal activity.

"The LAPD was in the process of reviewing the voluminous files contained on the DVD when the story was leaked to the media. No determination has been made as to whether or not the DVD contained any information that could be used for a criminal investigation.

Some of the information contained on the DVD included archived articles and photographs of porn stars and formally convicted madams, which could readily be found over the internet.

The LAPD will continue to review the DVD for potential evidence. Therefore, additional information about the contents of the DVD will be treated as confidential.”

We’re assuming the focus of the investigation is the possibility of drugs being involved, which is very likely.

The video was reportedly shot at Kari Ann Peniche’s home. Her mother spoke out yesterday, saying that she feared for the way her daughter had been living her life since moving to LA.

She said, “She's a good person but she's made some poor choices and has obviously been around the wrong people."

We guess you never really know what happens behind people’s closed doors!!
