Washington, Aug 10 : Verne Troyer's sex tape has now been sold off for 5000 dollars to a private collector, according to the actor's ex-girlfriend.
The tape, which features Troyer and his ex girlfriend Ranae Shrider, has as per her claims been sold to a man who approached her outside her house.
News of the sale came a month after the two had launched a bitter battle over the tape, which resulted in two federal lawsuits, and which now prevents Troyer from copyrighting it in his effort to prevent its distribution.
"She just wanted to be rid of it (sex tape)," Contactmusic quoted Shrider's manager Holly Bannon as saying.
Bannon further told the Los Angeles Times newspaper that the tape exchange was "a cash deal" with no paperwork, adding the man gave a name she assumed was false.
Shrider's attorney Keith Davidson insists the video was bought for private viewing only.
However, Troyer's lawyer, Edwin MCPherson, admits he's struggling to accept the story surrounding the sex tape sale.
"Some guy just pulled up to the curb and gave her five grand? Was it in a paper bag? I don't believe this," McPherson added.
