Porn Company Wants to Destroy Demi Lovato Sex Tape

The alleged sex tape made by troubled Disney starlet Demi Lovato may never see the light of day, if porn company Vivid Entertainment has their way. The adult entertainment company has stepped in as Lovato’s white knight of sorts, offering to purchase distribution rights to the naughty homemade video and then destroy it. Vivid's founder, Steve Hirsch, told TMZ, “After everything that Demi Lovato has been through, we would never consider distributing a sex tape with her. In fact, we would purchase it and either give it back to her or destroy it.” What a thoughtful offer. [TMZ]

Rihanna and her boyfriend of about a year, Matt Kemp, have officially broken up. According to Us Magazine, Rihanna and the LA Dodger broke up "over the last few weeks" and that Rihanna "basically was just over it." The apparent source also stated that Rihanna and Kemp's breakup was due to the singer's "busy" schedule. "He just can't keep up with her crazy travel schedule," the source said. "Matt's sick of always following her like a puppy dog all over the world.” She’s back on the market, guys! [Just Jared]

Joe Paterno Still Says He's Not Quitting his Job

Penn State coach Joe Paterno is insisting that he has no plans to stop coaching after this week's Outback Bowl. The 84-year-old legend said during a news conference today that he "honest to goodness" has no plans of leaving his role as head coach after 45 seasons with the Nittany Lions. Paterno also called rumors he may quit after this Saturday's game against the Florida Gators "ridiculous." Pretty sure this guy is gonna go out right in the middle of a bowl game. [ESPN]
