CELEBRITY sex tapes usually surface in one of two ways – either being sold by a scorned ex, or being leaked by the creator.
But a sex tape being staged for a porn company but being sold as a stolen home movie? That's a new one.
One of the stars of US reality show Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta has been exposed for orchestrating the release of a filthy sex tape with her ex-boyfriend – then awkwardly claimeing that it was stolen from their bags at an airport.
Because we all carry around sex tapes in our cabin luggage.
Mimi Faust last year saw a seriously explicit video of her getting down and dirty with then-boyfriend Nikko London released by porn moguls Vivid Entertainment.

At the time, the reality star told the press that the tape was nicked from Nikko's bag in the airport, and to make any sort of profit on their embarrassment, they had to film extra footage for Vivid.
But now, the 45-year-old has admitted that the whole raunchy affair was staged.
Mimi told Us Weekly: "Nikki took it straight to Vivid, is my understanding of it. The way he went about it, he was like 'our lovemaking is an art, we should document this'.
"Every time I would go to Nikko’s place, there would be a camera and a tripod in front of the bed at all times. You know how you get that gut feeling? I didn’t listen to my gut instinct. I kind of just shoved it to the side."
Ah, the romance.
Miss Faust added that she would "abso-f***ing-lutely" take back the experience if she could, and tweeted to fans: "Hopefully my story will help other women make better decisions when it comes to men."
One good thing to come out of the situation? Mimi confessed that she would be receiving a cheque every three months for "the rest of her life" from the tape's profits.
