Jimmy Green Lied About Sex Tape For Publicity And To Hurt Wife Lark Voorhies
Lark Voorhies’ estranged husband hatched a desperate plan to humiliate her and generate quick cash by leaking details of a FAKE sex tape, BOSSIP can reveal.
Last week Voorhies filed for divorce from Jimmy Green, her hubby of six months, citing irreconcilable differences. Green then tried to shop the photo above of the former “Saved By The Bell” star smoking what appeared to be a marijuana blunt, but abandoned that idea and upped the ante by telling the world he had a video of them having sex, a friend of the couple said.
But BOSSIP has learned the entire sex tape story was a hoax motivated by Green’s increasingly frenzied search for money and publicity for his fledgling rap career. Green also wanted to hurt Voorhies once she changed her cell phone number after her mother filed a restraining order against him, the couple’s friend Marky Hutt told us.
“The sex tape doesn’t exist,” Hutt told BOSSIP. “It was a ploy to get Lark to contact him because of the restraining order. He doesn’t even have a phone. He’s broke. He takes the bus. Any sex that happens is in her mother’s house.”
And how does Hutt know all of this? The part-time PR man said he gave Green the idea for the fake sex tape when Green reached out to him claiming he was “stressed, need(ing) some money,” according to Facebook messages provided to BOSSIP.
“Unfortunately, that was my idea, and I regret it,” Hutt said.
Hutt – who met Voorhies through mutual friends a few years ago – said Green went as far as to ask Hutt to pose as a reporter to get Voorhies’ new phone number, all the while claiming Voorhies didn’t want to divorce, but her mother, Trish was pushing her into it. Green also claimed Voorhies liked to pop sleeping pills during the day, Hutt said, adding that the jobless Green told him since he’s no longer welcome at Voorhies’ parents’ home, he’d spend the day at the library around the corner.
“It was creepy,” Hutt said.
Hutt said he got cold feet about the sex tape charade and decided to speak out because he’s worried Green’s lie would send Voorhies – who has had a history of mental health problems – into a downward spiral. He said he’s witnessed Voorhies talk to herself even when she’s taking her medication.
“She lives a very sheltered life, which is understandable when you have people like this trying to take advantage,” Hutt said. “She doesn’t need this kind of publicity about a sex tape. That’ll trigger a relapse.”
We’ve reached out to Voorhies, and her publicist Jennifer Wolfson for comment.
