The Tupac Shakur sex tape that came to light in October and caused a bidding war has now been sold to an individual described as a "private collector," TMZ reports.

The website says the five-minute tape, recorded in 1991 and containing the late rapper engaging in sex acts with a female groupie, was sold to a private individual because the seller hated large porn companies, calling them "parasites."

The seller may have also been influenced by statements from the estate of Tupac. A representative for the estate had threatened to come after anyone who tried to release the footage. “We will sue anyone who tries to sell a Tupac tape,” the rep said. “Get [your] legal team ready because [we] will not allow someone to put it out,” the rep added.

It has not been revealed just how much money changed hands in this private transaction. The tape apparently contains an unreleased Tupac track playing in the background. Some entities were reportedly making bids in the range of $1 million for the music alone.
