London, October 5 : Britney Spears' ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib could find himself behind bars if he tried to sell the sex tape featuring him and the singer.
The paparazzi photographer, who dated Britney during her public meltdown, had offered the tape for sale inviting the highest bid and was trying to sell it to Internet's pay-per-view porn websites for 5.6million pounds.
Meanwhile, the singer has decided to fight back and her lawyers have filed a lawsuit claiming that Britney was mentally instable when the video was shot.
The 2-hour long tape was allegedly shot while the duo was holidaying in Mexico earlier this year - around the same time when Britney was struggling with depression, drug addiction and nervous breakdowns.
The singer had landed in hospital psychiatric wards twice after a string of public meltdowns and had also lost custody of her children control of her finances before being filmed with Ghalib.
"Brit's attorneys will argue that she was coerced into being filmed having sex with Ghalib while the balance of her mind was disturbed," the Daily Star quoted a family source as saying.
The source said: "Every shred of evidence supports this.
"The whole world watched earlier this year as she was strapped on to a gurney and carted off to a mental ward."
The 35-year old Brummie, who, according to pals, has been struggling financially since being ditched by Britney, could face up to ten years behind bars if he were to break the injunction.
