Earlier this week we told you with utter delight and horror about how Verne “Mini-Me” Troyer is the star of a leaked sex tape where the pint-sizes thespian is romping with his full-sized former girlfriend, right?

Well, now the Love Guru co-star has filed a $20 million lawsuit, claiming TMZ violated his rights by publishing and airing parts of his sex tape.

Ooops!

In the suit, filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in downtown L.A., Troyer claims TMZ violated his privacy rights and infringed on his copyright and trademark by showing portions of the tape on TMZ TV and TMZ.com. He also alleges TMZ violated his right of publicity and misappropriated his name and likeness.

Like all celebrities in porn scandals, Troyer claims the tape was “stolen” and ended up in the hands of Kevin Blatt, the guy who distributed One Night in Paris. Blatt is also named as a defendant.

In addition to damages, Troyer wants an injunction prohibiting further dissemination of the video.

I bet he does!

One can only wonder what Mike Myers thinks of all this….
