VIVID SAYS MINDY MCREADY’S ATTORNEY IS PRESUMPTUOUS IN TRYING TO STOP RELEASE OF HER SEX TAPE
LOS ANGELES — (April 8, 2010) – The release of the Mindy McCready sex tape “Baseball Mistress” may be on temporary hold by Vivid Entertainment, but the studio plans to distribute the movie despite a new letter from McCready’s attorney Adam Dread.
In the video, country music and reality show personality McCready shows off her sexual talents and talks candidly about the bedroom performances of Yankees and Red Sox pitching great Roger Clemens and other celebrities she’s been involved with over the years.
Last week Dread sent Vivid, founder/co-chairman Steven Hirsch a “cease and desist” letter and demanded to see documentation that the studio had authorization to distribute the video. Hirsch announced earlier this week that “We’ve decided to take a little extra time to study all of our documentation and other clearances before we proceed.”
In his latest letter, dated April 7th, Dread requests answers to six categories of documentation and other information. (Visit www.vivid.com to see letter.)
“Adam Dread is being presumptuous to think we will share all of the information he’s requested in his letter to me,” said Hirsch. “We have no fear of the court system as we’ve operated within the law and we’ll provide him with the documentation that is necessary, when we’re ready, and not a minute before.”
McCready was one of the nine cast members in the latest season of VH1’s Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. She plans to promote her new album “Mindy McCready I’m Still Here” across the country this month. It’s her first in eight years and she is best known for her hits “Ten Thousand Angels” and “Guys Do It All The Time.”
