Who? Just some guy in Michigan.
Real? Yes, though it never circulated publicly.
Brandon Goddard is not technically a celebrity. He falls into the category of “people who are famous only because their sex tapes became famous”.
In March 2010, a few “world’s dumbest criminals”-type sites highlighted the Brandon Goddard sex tape story. True Crime Report wrote:
While he was engaged to be married, he decided to have sex with a 21-year-woman who was not his bride-to-be…
And just because he’s a creepy bastard, he decided to film it on his laptop — without the woman’s knowledge.
All was well and good until the Goddard threatened the woman with publishing the tape, so she went to the cops.
[...] It wasn’t the biggest of crimes, since the tape was never published. He’d already done 26 days in the slam awaiting trial, and there was a good chance he’d get probation. Except for the fact that Goddard is an idiot.
He decided to call the “Dog House” segment on radio station WRIF. “This girl is a total nut job,” he announced. “She decided to tell the cops and say she didn’t know she was being recorded.”
[...] Alas, someone with the Macomb County Prosecutor’s office happened to be listening in, and brought a tape of Goddard’s boasts to his sentencing. That didn’t make the judge happy. Instead of a slap on the wrist, he got an additional two months plus three years probation.
You gotta admit, that is a great “world’s dumbest criminals” story. The Brandon Goddard sex tape never circulated publicly, though the man himself should be out on probation by now.
