Chad Johnson will not take the leaking of his sex tape lying down, and he’s now taking legal action. The former NFL star has filed a lawsuit against two websites that posted footage of him having sex with a tattooed woman.

According to TMZ, Johnson’s lawsuit is against the websites WorldStarHipHop.com and MediaTakeOut.com. The ex-husband of reality star Evelyn Lozada claims the two websites posted stolen footage from his home.

Johnson is suing for unspecified damages, plus, a court order blocking the websites from posting the footage ever again. Since he issued a cease-and-desist letter last Thursday, both websites have removed the tape. But, feeling the damage has already been done, Johnson is continuing with his lawsuit.

In another area of Johnson’s love life, after rumors began swirling that he and Lozada were getting back together, his ex-wife has emphatically denied that that is the case. After being spotted at a Johnson family event in Miami, Lozada responded to the speculation that they were rekindling. "I care for Chad,” she explained. “We are friends and we love one another, however, we are still separated.”
