If you stick around the seedy corners of the Internet for any amount of time, it's safe to say you are going to run across a celebrity sex tape. Former NFL star Chad Johnson is the latest to have one leak. 

TMZ reports the 34-year-old NFL free agent has admitted to being the man in a sex video leaked to the masses recently. 

Chad Johnson acknowledges ... a sex tape which appears to feature the former NFL star -- along with TWO female friends -- is REAL ... but Chad insists he never wanted the footage to go public. 

They never do, Ochocinco, they never do. 

The report goes on to say the video was shot about three years ago but is just now hitting inboxes around the world. 

As was the case during Hulk Hogan's sex-tape fiasco, the celebrity in this particular video is also seeking out legal avenues. 

Johnson seems to have no idea how the images hit the Internet, but is dedicated to finding out how it happened and seeing if there may be legal recourse. 

Deadspin reports on the matter and links to a video, which—for the moment—is a clip consisting of a couple of seconds of live action as well as a few stills from what is supposed to be a much longer video. 

If you are wondering who the female is in that portion of the video, Black Sports Online reports she is model Wankaego, pictured below. 

That report comes thanks to Full Court Pumps, who unearthed the mystery female and has far more information than we could have hoped for. 

The female is non other than former Sporty Chick and Orlando native, Wankaego. Wankaego is a video vixen who can be seen in numerous videos, on the cover of BlackMen Magazine and Urban Ink, and is currently persueing her dream as a rapper. The model has also been linked to rappers Soulja Boy and Waka Flocka.

Johnson, who is 34 years old, is getting over one tumultuous year wherein he was cut from the Miami Dolphins after being arrested for domestic violence

The dispute involved Johnson and his wife of barely a month, reality-TV star Evelyn Lozada. The couple subsequently split and Johnson has remained out of the league.
