Tupac sex tape will never be released, vow rapper's family
Rapper's estate have said they will sue anybody who attempts to distribute the tape
News that a sex tape featuring the rapper existed emerged earlier this week and two rival pornographic companies were reportedly ready to pay over $150,000 (£98,000) for it, but according to US gossip site TMZ, the rapper's family have made it very clear that they "will sue anyone who tries to sell a Tupac tape".
According to an official spokesman for Tupac's estate, only his family can authorize the use of Tupac's image for commercial use and they are not prepared to allow his image to be used for this.
The rapper's mother Afeni Shakur has also reportedly told her representatives: "Get the legal team ready because we will not allow someone to put it out."
The tape was reportedly made in 1991 and features an unnamed woman performing oral sex on the rapper during a party.
