Usher sex tape may not be released

Adult entertainment executive Steve Hirsch has said he will help suppress Usher's celebrity sex tape.

Earlier this week, a film of the star with his former wife Tameka Foster emerged, in which he may have been using condoms.

It was thought he would become the latest in a long line of famous people who have had their special moments put out there for everyone to see.

However, Mr Hirsch, who is the boss at Vivid Entertainment, is happy to help the movie from appearing anywhere.

"As a result of this being an intimate and very personal tape we can certainly understand why you would want to stop its distribution," he said in a letter on TMZ.

Mr Hirsch remarked he has stopped a number of them coming out before.

Among the stars who have seen their fame rocket due to starring on one of the home movies are Kendra Wilkinson, Pamela Anderson, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.
