Vivid Can Finally Release Courtney Stodden Sex Tape

LOS ANGELES—Courtney Stodden, a "good Christian girl" who began her entertainment career working a Washington State beauty pageant, then tried modeling for a time, in the process becoming a media darling (the 36DDs might have had something to do with it), has finally signed a contract with Vivid Entertainment Group to release the video of her pleasuring herself.

Stodden's had a storied career over the past four years. She was married (at 17) to 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson (who's reportedly four years older than Courtney's dad) after he courted her online for several months, divorced a bit more than two years later (after appearing in the cast of the second season of VH1's Couples Therapy), and she's had guest appearances on numerous TV shows, including the British version of Celebrity Big Brother, E! Entertainment's The Soup and the "reality" show Hollywood Hillbillies.

However, somewhere along the way, Stodden made a videotape of herself masturbating, which she told TMZ was stolen by "one of her best friends" who "made it clear that he will stop at nothing to double-cross me."

But what's new about the situation, aside from the mountain of publicity that will surely follow, is that Stodden has announced that she will be donating all of her proceeds from the sale of the video to charity, and that she's leaning towards either an animal rights group—she's a vegetarian—or to help children with cancer.

At present, Stodden is working on a singing career—she had a cameo last year in 50 Cent's "Don't Worry Bout It" and had released three of her own music videos between 2010 and 2012—and her website is "coming soon."

Watch for Stodden's movie to be released on the Vivid Celeb website here.

Editor's note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that celebrity sex tape broker Kevin Blatt shopped the tape to Vivid. In an earlier report on Blatt made a comment about the deal, but a spokesperson from Vivid states that Blatt had "absolutely nothing to do with the Courtney Stodden tape."
