Vivid Entertainment, the world's largest adult film producer, are on the verge of releasing a sex tape which they claim is of the late Jimi Hendrix.

The film allegedly shows a man who resembles Hendrix having sex with two brunettes in a hotel room.

The man’s full face only appears on screen for a few seconds, with his eyes closed.

Vivid Entertainment say they plan to release the film, which has no audio, under the name ‘Jimi Hendrix The Sex Tape’ later this week.

According to the New York Times, Vivid, who famously released tapes of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, plan to sell the 45 minute film for $39.95.

The supposed film arrives amid a storm of speculation as to whether the man in the film is actually Hendrix, who died in 1970.

Despite claims suggesting otherwise, Vivid said that a team of private investigators had confirmed that the man in the tape is Hendrix.

“I believe that we did our due diligence, and as a result of that clearly believe that it’s him,” said Steven Hirsch, Vivid’s co-chairman.

“If they said that it wasn’t him, I would never have put it out.”
