Kid Rock Blames Stapp for Sex Tape Leak

Will they never romp together again? Kid Rock doesn't seem too keen on keeping company with Scott Stapp anymore, despite the recent surfacing of a sex tape that shows the former tourmates laughing it up as they enjoy the fruits of rock-and-roll decadence.
Stapp has claimed that the now-notorious tape was stolen from his possession by someone -- a nefarious "someone" who sought to derail Stapp's budding solo career. The plot may be working; the Orlando Sentinel recently reported that Stapp had difficulty selling tickets at a modestly sized venue there, resulting in an upstairs seating area that went entirely unused.
Stapp has been victimized, but he's still learned a valuable lesson. "You think it's part of your rock-and-roll memories," he said wistfully of the tape, but acknowledged that, if he had it to do all over again, he would have burned the tape.
But a least one person isn't buying Stapp's persecution complex: sex tape co-star Kid Rock.
"He's the idiot because it's out," Rock said. "I'm holding him responsible." More damningly, Rock implies that Stapp only appeared in the video in the first place because he crashed the party, asking if he could "get in" on all the fun.
Rock has tried to maintain a good-natured front, saying that he doesn't "even care" about the release, that it shouldn't have come as a surprise to anyone familiar with his bawdy music, and that his only regret is being lumped into infamy alongside Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson -- whom he also called "idiots."
In the meantime, however, the carefree rocker's legal team has begun battle with the tape's intended distributors, seeking to permanently block the release.
