Stud Ariel from Peterpan causes national controversy with his Luna Maya/Cut Tari sex tapes.
An explicit video clip in circulation online and from mobile phone to mobile phone appears to show singer Nazril Irham aka Ariel from pop group Peterpan in bed with model Luna Maya (the face of Lux), who is his current girlfriend, while another older video features Ariel entertaining someone who resembles now ex-girlfriend actress Cut Tari. Cut Tari however, who is now married with children, vigorously denies that she is featured in either video.
The rather graphic Ariel and Luna video, which you can download here, has caused a storm of controversy, and Jakarta police have raised the possibility that Ariel, Luna Maya and Cut Tari may be charged under the 2008 Anti-Pornography law, although it seems that police are most interested in who distributed the clips.
