Sex Tape scandal

Nicole Narain & Colin Farrell 

Nicole was sued by the British/ Irish actor Colin Farrell in 2005 for leaking their private sex tape of 14 minutes length, though the sale of tapes was ordered to be stopped by the court the video had gone viral on the internet by that time. The website was shutdown on the orders of the court. The case was settled outside the court between themselves, limiting the damage to minimum.

Farrell had argued that she had misused the trust with which he agreed to make the video just for themselves, that she had done such a thing because of her contact with some internet pornography site owner (she had tried to sell the recording to the "Internet Commerce Group"). Nicole's friend Candance Smith was also accused of conspiring to sell the tape.

Colin was defended by lawyer Paul Berra in the court. Leodis Matthews represented Nicole Narain. Judge Elihu Berle quashed Narain's appeal to allow the video airing, it was Judge David Yaffe who blocked Nicole from selling or distributing the tape.

In the interviews over the years Colin has confessed to being high at the time of shooting the video (it was shot in August 2002),  He wouldn't have agreed to the idea if he was sober at the time as per the actor. He had tried to keep the video off the internet because he was worried his mother might see it if it is offered at some hotel as a "special" Colin Farrell movie.

Nicole has said that she is upset with the video leak as well as with Colin for making it look like she was the culprit. As far as she is concerned she had not given anyone the permission to publish the video, she has denied Colin's request to have exclusive right over video, Nicole says "It is mine too". She doesn't want to profit of it, but wants her legitimate right over the video.
