The Kanye West sex tape believed to be currently being shopped around some of the leading x-rated websites was stolen from the rapper's laptop, according to his manager.

As reported on Gigwise last week, the sex tape features Kanye and a girl who is reported to look an awful lot like his current girlfriend, Kim Kardashian and is being offered around porn sites to the highest bidder.

However, the legal status of the video could stop any publication with West's lawyers issuing a cease and desist notice over the video this weekend (Sept 23).

Kanye's legal team are also insisting that any website showing a screen shot from the video remove it from their stories and stop publising the existence of the video.

One website, Sex.com, is believed to have bid $1m for the rights to the video.
