Sorry . . . There Is No Joe Jonas Sex Tape
If you heard that there was a sex tape kicking around featuring JOE JONAS and his girlfriend using BONDAGE AND S&M GEAR like paddles and ball gags . . . would you believe it?
--Apparently a lot of people did, because the rumor started making the rounds yesterday. But it's not true. At least that's Joe's story.
--His rep says, quote, "There is no truth or validity to the story. It is completely false."
--It probably IS false, because the story is pretty ridiculous.
--A source who SUPPOSEDLY saw the tape says Joe and his girlfriend, Swiss model Blanda Eggenschwiler, made it over a period of several hours, and even had a trusted friend there to do the filming.
--They're also seen smoking pot and downing shots . . . and during the sex there's, quote, "a lot of overly dramatic screaming and moaning."
NBC May Have to Pay Jay Leno a Big Penalty If They Dump Him Early
There's been talk that NBC might dump JAY LENO before his contract is up in September of 2014 . . . so that they can hand JIMMY FALLON the reins sooner rather than later. Supposedly, it could happen as early as February.
--But TMZ says that's unlikely, because "when Leno renegotiated his contract during the CONAN O'BRIEN mess, he demanded, and got, several penalty clauses that would make NBC take an ENORMOUS financial hit if they pull the plug early."
--There's no word how much that payout would be, but supposedly Leno made sure it was an INSANE amount. That way, he could essentially guarantee that he wouldn't be replaced early.
