Lawyers for Kid Rock and a California company have reached a tentative agreement to extend a judge’s order blocking the release of an explicit sex video featuring the rap-rocker, former Creed singer Scott Stapp and four women.
Under the agreement, the temporary injunction would remain in effect without the necessity of another court hearing, according to William Horton, a lawyer for Rock who spoke to The Detroit News.
Paperwork to permanently block the release of the tape is expected to be filed early next week, the newspaper said.
Lawyers for the company, World Wide Red Light District, did not return messages left Saturday seeking comment.
Last month, federal Judge John Feikens in Detroit signed a temporary order that stopped the company from distributing or promoting the tape.
Kid Rock’s lawyers sued Red Light, which made headlines in 2004 by distributing the Paris Hilton sex video. The lawsuit sought a permanent court order halting sale or distribution of the video.
Stapp also has filed a federal lawsuit in Los Angeles to stop the company from selling or promoting the video. And a woman who claims to be involved in the video has sued Stapp for invasion of privacy.
Red Light acknowledged the tape came from a third party, but a company lawyer has denied that it was stolen.
