A lawsuit filed on behalf of Limp Bizkit lead singer Fred Durst
alleges that the same people who hacked Paris Hilton's cell phone were
able pull a homemade sex video off Durst's computer.

The Smoking Gun has obtained part of Durst's complaint against various
web sites that posted portions of Durst's sex romp with a former
girlfriend. The document states that the US Secret Service has kicked
off an "elaborate investigation" into the Hilton Hacking and Durst's
home movie mess. The singer, and apparent amateur filmmaker, is
seeking up to $80m for having his privates put on the web without
consent, according to The Smoking Gun.

Durst's sex clips started gaining attention shortly after the e-mails,
photos and contacts from Paris Hilton's Sidekick appeared on the net.  
Durst's lawsuit alleges that web site operators contacted him to ask
about making a deal to sell his homemade sex video online. The lawsuit
goes on to say that Durst declined to make such a deal, believing he
had the lone copy of the video.

"The only copy of the Video was on the hard drive of Plaintiff's
computer, and was subsequently stolen therefrom," the lawsuit says.

Durst is looking to have the video and still photos made from it
removed from the web. More information is available here [1].
