Chad Johnson is the latest celebrity to have a sex tape leaked onto the Internet.
Pictures and part of a tape were sent to Worldstarhiphop.com. The former NFL wide receiver, once known as Chad Ochocinco, has admitted to being in the video, though he claims he had nothing to do with its release. He says it was shot more than three years ago.
According to TMZ, Johnson is taking legal action, in the hopes of prosecuting the person who leaked the tape. He believes the footage was released after his cell phone was hacked.
The Web site is reporting that Johnson contacted the FBI to help with the investigation. TMZ says he’s also talked to his lawyer, who is used to dealing with cyber crimes.
Black Sports Online is reporting that model Wankaego is the woman in the tape. She’s been in several music videos, and has been linked with rappers Wacka Flocka and Soulja Boy.
Johnson was always known for causing trouble on the field and in the locker room, but lately he’s had multiple issues off the field. He was released by the Miami Dolphins before the start of the 2012 season. Johnson was cut when his now ex- wife, Evelyn Lozada, accused him of domestic violence.
