confessed through her lawyer, Hotman Paris, that she is in fact in one of the celebrity sex tapes that have recently done the rounds of the internet. The videos apparently still remain a staple on office computers and phones ensuring that the scandal remains in the public domain.
The alleged reason for leaving the confirmation of her part in the tape was to ensure that she did not preempt or get ahead of the police investigation. This should be read as she was calling the police's bluff and wanting to see whether or not they could prove it was her. If they could not, then no need to confess. However, if the police could prove it was her then she could easily confess at some later point. Nevertheless, the denials up to the point where it becomes impossible to refute the mounting evidence (no pun intended) can always be attributed to an attempt to avoid the shame or humiliation that tends to attach themselves to these sorts of scandals.
A concern is that the Cut Tari tape, in contrast to the Luna Maya one, seems to have been produced using a small handy-cam and not a mobile phone. The image quality is so much better (so I am told) and it does not seem to have been shot through a key hole or using some kind of peeping technology. It is hard to reconcile the video with the idea that Cut Tari was not aware that she was being filmed. Perhaps the court case, assuming it goes that far, will reveal all.
I guess Cut Tari's confession means that it is now a little bit harder for Ariel to deny he is the male star of the video.
