<div id="page1">Wholesome 'High School Musical' star Vanessa Hudgens is probably wishing she'd held onto a batch of nude photos that first surfaced in Sept 2007. Another leak from the same batch surfaced in August 2009, and the actress was again hit by another leak (featuring the most graphic shots to date) in March 2011, one week before her movie Sucker Punch opened.</div>

A cell phone photo of a very nude Chris Brown leaked on the web in March 2011. Brown explained the photo on KPWR's "Big Boy&#8217;s Neighborhood" morning show, saying &#8220;It was an out the shower shot. It was like 'hey what's up?'" and added that the picture was &#8220;definitely sent to a girl.&#8221;
A sex tape reportedly featuring Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Foster was reportedly being shopped around in March 2011. TMZ reports the tape was stolen from the singer&#8217;s car during a December 2009 break-in.
We thought we had seen all (and we mean all) of Kendra Wilkinson after the former Girls Next Door reality star's sex tape was "leaked" to XXX company Vivid Entertainment  -- but in Jan 2100, just months after the release of her first video, more footage surfaced featuring some girl-on-girl action.
Paris Hilton wasn't the first celebrity to be mortified by a leaked sex tape (Pamela Anderson beat her to it in 1998), but the under-three-minute clip that leaked online in 2003 featuring the then-19-year-old heiress and Rick Solomon frolicking in all their night vision glory was a pop culture game changer. Not only did nearly everyone with access to an Internet connection get a peek at the naughty clip (which was later released commercially under the surprisingly clever title 1 Night in Paris), it propelled a little-known heiress to worldwide stardom overnight. Suddenly, it was like the kinky floodgates opened and nude tapes and photos of famous folk (including Colin Farrell, Fred Durst, Vanessa Hudgens, Marcia Cross and Miley Cyrus) came pouring out of the woodwork. Also, Hilton's leak suspiciously coincided with the launch of her reality show, The Simple Life, and ushered in a new era of stars who became famous for no reason other than starring in a "leaked" sex tape (see: Kim Kardashian, Nicole Narain). Who needs to rely on talent when you've got homemade porn?
In Dec 2010, hip hop star Nicki Minaj was rumoured to have a sex tape floating around.
Paris Hilton's ex-BFF, Kim Kardashian, is another pseudo-celebrity who went from a nobody to a sexy somebody super fast when her sex tape was "mysteriously" leaked to the public.
Colin Farrell was none-too-happy when a tape featuring him and his ex-girlfriend, Playboy model Nicole Narain, surfaced in 2005. He went to court to stop distribution of the DVD.
In October 2006, Marcia Cross fought to recover nude photos of her that were accidentally thrown out in the trash and discovered by the owner of her garbage collection company.
Rumours of a sex tape featuring Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester hit the web in June 2009. The tape allegedly contains footage of the actress doing some kinky stuff with her feet. She claims the tape doesn't exist.
Dustin Diamond (aka Screech from Saved by the Bell) freaked us out when a 40-minute video that features him getting it on with two women surfaced.
Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst claims the three-minute video of him having sex with an anonymous groupie that was leaked to the Net was stolen from his laptop.
A tape featuring Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane (C) and his wife Rebecca Gayheart hanging around naked with former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche hit the web in August 2009. Said Dane's lawyer: "Although the participants are nude, the tape is not a 'sex tape.'
The Hills exes Lauren Conrad and Jason Wahler fought rumours of the existence of a sex tape. They claim the rumours were started by Hills villian Spencer Pratt.
You forgot about this one, didn't ya? In a short, 30-second clip leaked to the Internet, bad-girl rapper Eve is shown getting it on with a sex toy and her then-boyfriend, Stevie J.
Probably the most famous stolen celeb porn video of all time, a steamy and very dirty sex-capade was shot by the Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee on their honeymoon in 1995. It wasn't long before it made it onto the Internet (and into millions of men's fantasies).
You'd think she would have learned. After breaking up with Tommy, Pam went on to make another explicit home video, this time with Poison singer Bret Michaels. The video was also leaked onto the Net but it didn't make as much of a splash, mainly because Michaels failed to, ahem, measure up to Lee.
