Jenna Lewis “has pocketed 70% of the proceeds” from her sex video sales.
As reality blurred and others predicted over the summer, Jenna Lewis sex tape release wasn’t exactly an accident. It’s being sold at non-work safe realitytail.com for $15 to $40, but when it was released Jenna issued a press release to say she was “embarrassed by the emergence of the footage” and told Extra she “I ran around the house crying, screaming, so angry and upset that day.” Now, The New York Daily News’ Ben Widdicombe reports that he “has detailed information that the Web site, which Lewis and her manager created, has taken in more than $100,000 since June. She has pocketed 70% of the proceeds, paid into a City National Bank account in Los Angeles.” He also reports that Jenna and her co-star husband Travis Wolfe have apparently split up, and Wolfe “didn’t get his own cut from the vid, but [Jenna’s manager Andre] Jetmir took 7.5%.”
