Throughout entertainment history, there have been a number of celebrity sex tapes released out into the public.

Internationally, there was Paris Hilton's sex tape which caused a huge dent on her career as a reality star, then there was the infamous Kim Kardashian/Ray J sex-tape which didn't sink but catapulted Kim's career to greater heights.

In South Africa, there have also been a number of sex-related stories that have subjected celebrities to a lot of embarrassment and emotional stress.

The recent one being Isibaya's Thembi Nyandeni who has since denied that she is the one in the sex tape.

Siphiwe Mtshali

Back in 2004, Sunday World newspaper released on their front page an image of a couple in their car, engaging in a sexual act and claimed that it was Mtshali.

In the photo, you could not see the face of the man who was laying on top of the woman but could only see his backside and dreadlocks. At the time, Siphiwe Mtshali had the same dreadlocks hairstyle and we guess the assumption was that it was him.

The actor vehemently denied that it was him during a press junket held back then at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Johannesburg.

According to a Mail & Guardian article published in 2004, Siphiwe and his legal team were rumoured to have demanded R175,000 from the newspaper for defamation of character.

Bontle used to play the character of Busi Motsamai on Muvhango, James Motsamai's daughter who was head over heels for one of her professors in varsity. However, in the storyline, the professor takes advantage of her and releases a sex-tape between him and Busi and as soon as that episode aired things became a bit difficult for Bontle on campus in real life.

Although the sex-tape is actually non-existent, Bontle was subjected to a lot of taunting in real life. According to reports, Bontle, who studied at the University of Johannesburg was called all sorts of names on campus and was on the verge of de-registering. At the time, Bontle was 19-years-old, the reports also mentioned how difficult it was for her on social media as well.

"They always look at me in this weird way, It's especially the older women working on campus. Many people believe everything they see on TV. I try to explain that this is a play, the storyline was meant for people to learn from it, especially young girls." Said the actress.
