So much for being a public Love Guru.
Verne Troyer has successfully shut down the distribution of his sex tape, at least for now.
After celebrity gossip websiteTMZ posted a revolting 25-second snipped of the video last week, a federal judge granted a temporary restraining order requested by Troyer's attorneys.
The Verne Troyer sex tape starred Ranae Shrider and, possibly, this dog.
Moreover, the ruling prevents any attempt by an adult film distributor from taking orders for the full 50-minute video, as U.S. District Judge Philip Gutierrez wrote that Troyer's motion "demonstrated that he will suffer irreparable harm to his reputation" if the tape is distributed.
You know, the same way Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson saw their career fall apart after filming a sex video.
"Mr. Troyer is extremely distraught by the recent exploitation of his private life," Troyer's publicist, Melissa Bergera, wrote in a statement released to the Associated Press.
