Rebecca Gayheart and Eric Dane have won a settlement from a company who posted one of their home sex tapes online.

The pair have reportedly received a low-six-figure settlement from Gawker Media after the video was posted on the internet.

The video was posted on their Defamer blog last year and shows the Grey's Anatomy star naked in a hot tub with his wife and pal Kari Ann Peniche.

Gawker have also been told to remove all traces of the tape from all their websites despite the fact it has already been seen over four million times.

In a statement, Gawker's Chief Operating Officer Gaby Darbyshire said: "Although we are confident that our use of the video on Gawker was protected fair use - because the posts already had been available to our readers for nearly a year, and because we already had won an important decision from the court striking large parts of the plaintiffs' claims - we agreed to remove the posts as part of a global settlement to avoid the burden of further litigation."
