Thank goodness! The release of that Mindy McCready sex tape has been delayed. Let's hope it stays that way! Vivid Entertainment says it has pushed back the April 19th release to get its legal ducks in a row. Mindy's not denying that the tape exists...she just says that it was stolen from her, "Everything that I have ever owned, every picture I’ve taken, every piece of clothing I have ever bought, every award I’ve won, everything. My mom’s best friend was supposed to store it from me in a storage facility which she owned." She also says the tape's release isn't a marketing ploy, "This has not been a media stunt. This was not a planned thing...In light of all the changes I’ve tried to make and worked so hard to make a reality, it’s quite insulting for people to think I would do something like this on purpose for headlines." Mindy just wrapped up a stint on Celebrity Rehab and she's fighting to get custody of her four-year-old son back from her mother. She says, "That’s a delicate matter. My mom and I are arguing over that situation. Me putting out some kind of a tape like that would be the worst thing I could ever do at this time regarding that situation.”
