One source close to the situation tells FOX411 the former Teen Mom star only got about 1/100 of that amount. Thats right: $10,000, not $1 million. And Kevin Blatt, who has brokered several celebrity sex tapes himself, said Tami Erin, who once portrayed Pippi Longstockings, got the same offer. Tami Erin was offered $10K up front which is standard for Vivid, Blatt told FOX411. It is what they offer every celebrity, not a million dollars. Another adult entertainment industry insider backed up Blatts claims. In reality she (Abraham) got $10,000 upfront and 30 percent of sales, minus the cost of production,” the source said. The entire celebrity sex video genre is a lot of unsubstantiated marketing with very little truth behind it. Its all publicity. Its all hype. (FOX411 reached out to Abraham, who had no comment.) Indeed in the era of free Internet porn and the decline of the DVD, porn insiders say celebs are making less and less for having sex on camera. Paris and Kim made millions, but thats because it was a different time, Blatt said. People were buying DVDs then. Our sources say Paris Hilton made over $13 million for her tape, released in 2004, while Kim Kardashian made over $8 million for her 2007 sex tape with hip hop singer Ray J. President of Vivid Entertainment Steven Hirsch would not talk numbers, but said: “I think after doing these deals for so many years I know how to properly structure them.We aim for fair deals for all involved and if they weren’t profitable, we wouldn’t be in business for almost 30 years.I’m happy with our track record.” Jasmine Waltz, a sometime actress and model most famous for dating celebrities like David Arquette and Ryan Seacrest, released her sex tape, “Real Jasmine,” for Exquisite in 2011. She told us anyone looking to parlay her 15 minutes of fame into a big sex tape payday better watch out. Vivid told me they would give $125,000 and 25 percent of the back end, all the sales that are made.Basically, youll never see the back end after advertisement. You wont get the money.
