Super Bowl MVP Von Miller Files Lawsuit To Block Sex Tape Publication
Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is reportedly taking legal action to stop the distribution of a sex tape recorded of him while he was vacationing in Mexico with several women.
The reigning Super Bowl MVP filed legal documents with a Los Angeles judge for a restraining order preventing Miller’s sex partner “from selling or commercially exploiting the tape,” according to The Smoking Gun. The Los Angeles woman, Elizabeth Ruiz, allegedly filmed the two of them with her phone while getting intimate with Miller and later offered to sell it to him for $2.5 million.
The court documents filed by the general counsel of Miller’s agent Vanguard Sports Group named “John Doe” as the plaintiff, but The Smoking Gun has confirmed Doe as Miller. He is described in the documents as “one of the most talented people at his craft in the United States,” as well as “widely recognized as the world’s best at his job.”
Judge Amy Hogue issued a temporary restraining order Monday restricting Ruiz from “distributing, copying, or releasing the tape,” TSG reports.
Miller “engaged in consensual sexual intercourse” while vacationing at a private Villa Cancun in June with several other people. Ruiz, an aspiring model/actress, reportedly recorded herself and Miller having sex. According to Miller’s attorneys, the Broncos star “insisted at all times that the recording be kept private,” to which Ruiz agreed.
The court filings suggest Ruiz is looking to profit off of Miller who recently signed a $114.5 million contract with Denver, making him the highest paid defensive player in the NFL.
They believe Ruiz is trying to exploit Miller for the seven figures while also accelerating her career aspirations.
