Celebrity porn merchant David Hans Schmidt has offered $100 million for an alleged sex tape featuring pop star Britney Spears and estranged husband Kevin Federline.
Schmidt is the porn broker behind videos starring Fred Durst and most recently former "Saved by the Bell" star Dustin Diamond.
A 19-second clip from a videotape was recently leaked online, which allegedly shows the pop princess performing a sex act on her estranged husband, sfgate.com reports.
Schmidt is quoted by website MSNBC as saying: "Two days after Britney filed for divorce I was contacted by an individual who indicated that he had a digital video of Britney Spears and Kevin Federline having sex.
"This gentleman knew enough names and identified enough parties involved to indicate that the tape could exist."
Britney filed for divorce last Monday but the news did not become public knowledge until the day after.
She apparently informed estranged husband Kevin of her decision by text message after the legal papers had been filed.
Schmidt claims the tape is said to have been filmed before Britney and Kevin were married in 2004.
Schmidt predicts the tape, if it is released, will be the biggest selling adult movie of all time. He said: "This tape would smash Paris Hilton's sex tape sales like an Oreo cookie."
The hotel heiress's tape One Night In Paris made more than $US50 million and Schmidt believes Britney's will make $US200 million, stuff.co.nz
