Mini-Me sues online celebrity muckraker over 'stolen' sex tape

How short is he?

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

Verne "Mini-Me" Troyer has sued TMZ.com for $20m, after the online celebrity gossip rag posted a sex video in which the 2 foot, 8-inch actor sticks it to former girlfriend Renae Shrider.

The pint-sized film thespian is best known for playing Mini-Me in the second and third films in the Austin Powers comedy series: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Goldmember - which weren't nearly as funny as the first.

According to Reuters, Mini-Me claims that the sex tape was stolen. "The videotape was never intended by either plaintiff or his girlfriend to be shown to the public, and was always intended exclusively for plaintiff's own personal, private use," reads his suit, filed in the US District Court in Los Angeles.

The suit demands that TMZ remove the tape from the net and fork over $20m in damages. Troyer's lawyers estimate the tape will bring in at least that much in profits.

The suit also names producer Kevin Blatt, who allegedly promoted the 2004 Paris Hilton sex tape, "One Night in Paris". Which begs the question: what price for a mash-up? ®
