Paris Hilton’s ex-boyfriend Doug Reinhardt is threatening legal action against a gossip website over allegations he is trying to sell a sex-tape he made with the heiress.
Rumours surfaced online earlier this week suggesting Hilton had become the star of a second steamy home video while she was dating Reinhardt. The socialite previously starred in 2004’s racy 1 Night In Paris, which was shot by another ex, film producer Rick Salomon.

Reinhardt’s representative was quick to dismiss reports he was shopping around a tape, insisting “it doesn’t exist and never existed.”

And now the former The Hills star’s lawyers have fired off a cease and desist to gossip website, warning the blogger to remove his claims or face a lawsuit.

In the missive, the lawyers state the reports are “false in every respect and… defamatory to Mr. Reinhardt.”
