Los Angeles - Kanye West's lawyers have issued a letter warning against publishing images from his sex tape.

A legal team acting on behalf of the rapper, confirmed the X-rated video has been stolen from his computer and anyone posting any of it online will face serious legal repercussions.

In a letter obtained by, Kanye's lawyer Lisa M Buckley states: "Be advised that the Screen Shot, as well as the Tape from which the Screen Shot was taken, were illegally obtained and believed to have been stolen from Mr. West's computer."

Offering $1m for video

"You're posting, advertising, marketing, displaying and otherwise disseminating the stolen Screen Shot and/or other materials on the Tape constitute actionable violations of Mr West's rights of privacy and publicity."

The lawyers are also seeking information as to who is attempting to sell the tape, which is in demand with offering $1m to the anonymous person for the tape.

Steve Hirsch of pornography company Vivid Video, who released Kim Kardashian's sex tape, said Kanye's sex video could be worth millions of dollars.

"It depends on the quality of the tape, the length, the lighting, the sex," Hirsch said.

"But something like this could go for a couple of million dollars. I don't think there has ever been a sex tape with a star of this magnitude. [Motley Crue drummer and ex-husband of Pamela Anderson] Tommy Lee was big, but this is a different world and Kanye is a special guy. He's everywhere," he stated during an interview.
