Verne Troyer by Todd Williamson/ WireImage.com
Earlier this week, TMZ went where no website should ever go when they posted clips from a leaked sex tape starring actor
. Troyer, best known for his role as Mini Me in
(and getting piss drunk every other minute on
The Surreal Life
), is firing back at the site and filing a $20 million lawsuit claiming
violated his rights by posting snippets of he and his lady friend doingahemprivate stuff.
Troyer claims the tape was stolen and wound up in the hands of Kevin Blatt (the brains behind
One Night in Paris
). Needless to say, Blatt is also named as a defendant in the suit. Besides looking to earn
20 millllllion dollars, Troyer also wants an injunction to stop anyone else from viewing the video.
Think $20 million is slightly outrageous in the land of law suits, or should TMZ be forced to pay the price of violating the actor's rights? And does anyone else find it strangely coincidental that his sex tape just happened to leak days after his new movie opened? -
