U.S. reality TV star Tila Tequila has lost her legal fight to stop release of a sex tape she made with a boyfriend several years ago - a judge has rejected her request for an injunction.
According to TMZ.com, the star, real name Tila Nguyen, filed for an injunction to stop the release of the explicit video, made during a holiday with a boyfriend more than seven years ago.
Her lawyer claimed the tape is an invasion of her privacy and a misappropriation of her image.
But a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge rejected the argument on Thursday (07Oct10), noting "Tila exploits her sexuality".
The judge also ruled that there wasn't enough evidence to issue a restraining order against the star's ex, whose name has not been released.
Tila rose to fame as a popular internet pin-up on MySpace.com, and has since become known as the bisexual star of U.S. reality dating show A Shot At Love.
