Sex tapes might not be as scandalous as they used to — but don't tell Eve that.
A tape featuring the rapper and her ex-boyfriend showed up on the Internet on Monday afternoon in an unmonitored, user-submitted section of a popular Web site and linked by gossip, music and sex blogs.
The short clip, dated November 20, 1999, shows no intercourse, but does portray the then-couple using a sex toy. Her partner's face is mostly obscured by his arm, but Eve's is clearly visible for a moment.
According to a representative for Eve, "This is a personal tape that was made years ago with her boyfriend of over two years. The fact that a private moment is being made public is a violation, and we would hope that people would respect her privacy as they would their own. Legal action has been taken to have it removed immediately."
Though it had been up as recently as late Tuesday afternoon (June 28), the clip has now been removed from the Web site and an official statement from the company is expected shortly.
