TOMMY LEE, PAMELA ANDERSON Unlikely To Collect Sex Video Award

December 16, 2002

"Baywatch" star Pamela Anderson and her ex-husband Tommy Lee are unlikely to see any of the money awarded to them as part of a judgment against an Internet company for marketing the couple's infamous sex video without their permission.

Seth Warshavsky, president and founder of Internet Entertainment Group, is on the lam in Thailand, running from angry creditors and federal investigators who want to speak with him, according to the New York Post.

IEG, which was touted as one of cyberspace's few money-making ventures, is now out of business and its once-lucrative web site,, is down.

David Weeks, who represented Anderson, Lee and POISON frontman Bret Michaels in sex-tape lawsuits against IEG, called the ruling "a moral victory."

"We would love for [Warshavsky] to pop up, so we can help with his finances," Weeks quipped.

U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson, in a written ruling issued two weeks ago and made public on Tuesday, said that he was granting Lee and Anderson a total of $1,481,786, which amounted to the profit that IEG made on sales of the tape, to be split between them.

He also awarded them attorneys fees and court costs.

Last year, Anderson settled a second lawsuit against IEG over a sex tape she made with Michaels. Anderson and Lee divorced and have fought bitterly in court over custody of their two children.
