Colin Farrell Sues Over Sex Tape

JULY 19--Fearing that a sex tape he made with a Playboy Playmate would be offered for sale, Colin Farrell yesterday filed a lawsuit against his former paramour, claiming that the woman was scheming to distribute the racy tape with the help of some online porn experts. In a Los Angeles Superior Court complaint, an excerpt of which you'll find below, the Irish actor, 29, charges that Nicole Narain is seeking to improperly benefit from the video of their taped tryst, which the couple filmed more than two years ago and agreed would remain 'strictly private and confidential.' Instead, Farrell alleges, Narain (pictured at right) has recently taken steps to market the film with the assistance of tabloid broker David Hans Schmidt and Paul Nash, marketing director for an Internet porn outfit. Along with seeking unspecified damages, Farrell wants a court order barring the 30-year-old Narain, who was Playboy's Miss January 2002, and her cohorts from selling the XXX production. (6 pages)
