‘Joost sex video’: Joost says missing tattoo and penis size show it is not him in video

2009-02-16 00:00

Pretoria — Joost van der Westhuizen has more than one trump card to prove that it’s not him in the so-called Joost sex video: a tattoo below his underpants line and the size of his most valued asset.

Yesterday he told Beeld the tattoo “that few people know of, near a very private place” is not visible on the video and that the man in the video has a “much larger penis” than his.

But he concedes: “I accept that any member of the public watching the video could easily think it’s me.”

In the video, a man who looks a lot like Van der Westhuizen among other things has oral sex, and sniffs something which Rapport and Heat magazine refer to as “a white powder”. Images from the video were published in Heat yesterday.

Yesterday afternoon Beeld newspaper was supposed to get the opportunity to watch the video (after Van der Westhuizen had watched it), but this arrangement was changed at the last minute because Van der Westhuizen’s lawyers and Heat’s lawyers had reached an agreement to halt the screening and distribution of the video until Van der Westhuizen has concluded his own investigation.

Late on Monday afternoon Van der Westhuizen said he did not proceed with an interdict against Heat “because there is nothing I need to prohibit”.

He said he is busy with his own “investigation” into the video, and that he is familiar with the people in the video. He didn’t want to say more.

In the meantime, Peter Marx from the Purple Pine public relations company said in a statement on behalf of Heat that Van der Westhuizen can be “clearly identified in the video”.
