The reigning Super Bowl MVP has found himself locked in a legal battle with an Instagram model over the release of a tape that she filmed.
Von Miller of the Denver Broncos has hired lawyers to block Elizabeth Ruiz from releasing the racy video that she allegedly filmed on her phone and offered to sell him for $2.5 million.

According to The Smoking Gun, Miller told Ruiz to keep the video private and eventually asked her to delete it, to which she agreed. As it turns out, Ruiz had big plans for the video: she planned to sell it to the highest bidder so that she could become the next Kim Kardashian.
Lawyers initially tried to hash out an agreement that would see Miller pay Ruiz $2.5 million for full ownership of the video, but when that fell through, Miller’s lawyers turned to the courts to issue an outright ban against Ruiz releasing it.
