Peniche claims that McCready, the country singer who was her roommate on “Celebrity Rehab,” stole a computer hard drive containing the footage of the birthday-suited threesome. Peniche, a one-time Miss United States Teen who was dethroned after posing for Playboy, tells TMZ that she, Dane and Gayheart made the recording a couple years ago and that there was no sex.
McCready, however, spins a different tale. In a very entertaining read in the New York Daily News, McCready says that “Kari Ann was the one that stole my hard drive and copied it to two mini-drives. She also stole money from me. I think she probably wanted to sell my music. I was the one trying to keep Kari Ann out of trouble.”
Peniche filed a report with the LAPD about her missing hard drive, but later the four interested parties and their representatives worked out an agreement to parcel out the drive’s contents, with Dane — Dr. Mark “McSteamy” Sloan on “Grey’s Anatomy” — winning custody of the not-a-sex-tape.
Still unanswered is the question of how the footage was leaked online.
