Adult studio Vivid Entertainment has put a temporary hold on the distribution of a Mindy McCready sex tape in order to take the "legal steps to prove it has the right to distribute it."

Attorney: Mindy McCready "not aware" of sex tape release

Vivid founder/co-chairman Steven Hirsch remains confident that the studio will distribute Mindy McCready, Baseball Mistress, which features the country singer engaging in sexual acts and talking about former sexual partners, including baseball great Roger Clemens, according to the company's news release about the film.

"We've decided to take a little extra time to study all of our documentation and other clearances before we proceed," Hirsch said of the film, which was scheduled to go on sale April 19. "I want a chance to review the correspondence from Mindy's attorney, Adam Dread, and to prepare a proper response to the letter he has sent to us."

Dread said last week that McCready is not on board with the sex tape, saying that they "are not aware of the production or release of the alleged film." The attorney also threatened legal action and sent a cease-and-desist letter to Hirsch.

McCready recently appeared on Celebrity Rehab and released her first studio album since 2002, I'm Still Here, two weeks ago.
