“I have a reputation of always supporting my daughter, but the one thing I do have a problem with — what is wrong — is when individuals make statements and claims that are not authorized,” Michael said. “If somebody wants to do something in private, in that it is not to be made public, it should be respected. Let’s be adults about this.”
You've been pretty tight-lipped about the actual sex scene you filmed with Farrah. What details can you reveal?James: "I can say whatever I want to, it's not like I have any legal restrictions in any way, shape, or form. The reason why I haven't told everyone everything is that I have respect for other people. I'd want my privacy respected so I'm trying to respect everyone else's. You know, like the companies and the individuals involved. I'd want to make sure they're not offended or hurt personally.In addition to that, the reason this whole thing started is that somebody took a picture of her [Farrah] and I coming out of her hotel room and the conversation became, ‘Hey, James, we saw you and this chick. Are you dating?’ I said, ‘No.’ It was, ‘What were you doing then?’ I said, ‘Shooting a [adult film].' That turned into this whole, 'James Deen spills the beans!' I didn't really spill the beans — people asked what we were doing."But wasn't it supposed to be this big ploy, that her sex tape was "accidentally leaked"? If that's true, you kinda did spill the beans.James: "I was approached to do this, and I was like, 'I'm the worst person to do this.' Not to be arrogant, but if you're watching [a sex tape] and I'm in it — even if I try to pretend I'm not me — people are gonna know it's me. I told them I'm not the right person to cast for this.For days before this whole thing, I said this is exactly what's going to happen. There was this whole scheme — you guys can go out on a date and we'll take pictures and pretend you're dating — and I said absolutely not. I have no desire to participate in any kind of that publicity … I'm not going to say I'm dating someone I'm not dating.So the reason there's not this big hoopla from the people involved is because, this was kind of inevitable. She's got quasi celebrity and I've got quasi celebrity, and when both of our quasi celebrities are at the same place at the same time, someone's gonna take a picture of us and send it to TMZ. There was this whole strategy and it blew up in their faces."Has she expressed to you that she's unhappy with how it's gone down?James: "TMZ expressed to me that she was. They called me and were like, 'Hey, are you gonna start a fight with her?!' I'm like, no, I have nothing bad to say. I think there's a lot of misunderstanding. I have no idea. I just don't want to get into stupid petty arguments over the Internet and he-said-she-said. I'm not going to perpetuate that kind of behavior."
