Kevin Blatt, a Hollywood sex-tape broker, spoke out about the alleged footage this week and said he has personally seen stills of the video and that it is definitely Mischa Barton.
"The tape is being shopped around porn valley, the asking price is $500,000," said Blatt. "I know that at least three large online porn sites, YouPorn.com, Porn.com, and RedTube.com have reviewed it and they're all seriously considering the offer."
