Max Mosley Scandal Video: His Drama Explained
Max Mosley was involved in a scandal video related to his private life.
In 2008, News of the World released a video related to Max’s sexual life. The video captured the F1 racer in a sadistic sexual act with several female prostitutes. Likewise, the video was allegedly taken by one of the prostitutes.
On March 30, 2008, the paper also published Max Mosely’s article with the title “F1 Boss Has Sick Nazi Org* with Five Hookers”. The article heavily described Mosley’s act as “Nazi-themed”.
In his 2008 judgment, Mr Justice Eady said that Max Mosley had a “reasonable expectation of privacy” in relation to his sexual activities … no matter how “unconventional”. The judge found no evidence of Nazi themes in the orgy & said Mosley’s life had been “ruined”.
