NRL investigates alleged sex-tape scandal involving Eels star

The NRL has launched an investigation after a Parramatta Eels player was allegedly filmed having sex with a woman in a toilet.

The four-second video has made its way into the public domain and appears to have been filmed over a door. The Eels released a statement on Wednesday confirming they were of the footage.

The NRL has launched an investigation after a Parramatta Eels player was allegedly filmed having sex with a woman in a toilet.

“The club has become aware of a video involving one of its players,” the statement said.

“We understand those on the video have been illegally filmed by another person without consent and that an attempt has been made to distribute the video to media outlets and on social media platforms.

“The club has informed the NRL integrity unit and is taking the matter very seriously, particularly given the potential invasion of privacy of those involved. The club will not be making any further comment.”

Having been made aware of the video, the NRL’s integrity unit is investigating.

The Herald revealed last month one of the women at the centre of the Tyrone May sex-tapes scandal is taking Supreme Court action against the Penrith playmaker in a two-tiered civil damages case.

The victim, who asked not to be named, has filed defamation and breach of privacy claims after an explicit video filmed in 2018 was disseminated without her consent.

May narrowly avoided jail after pleading guilty to four counts of intentionally recording an intimate image without consent. The matter appeared finalised at Parramatta Local Court in January 2020 when Magistrate Robyn Denes sentenced May to 300 hours of community service for an offence she described as “reprehensible” and “right on the cusp of a custodial sentence”.
