Former NFL star wide receiver Chad Johnson's sex tape video has been removed from the Internet by two websites following a cease and desist letter, according to a TMZ report.

Sources told TMZ Johnson's attorneys claimed the websites had no right to post the videos because the tape was stolen.

Johnson previously reported contacting the FBI with his belief that the tape was hacked from his phone.

Johnson has admitted that the male in the video -- engaging in sexual activities with two females -- was indeed him, and that the tape was recorded approximately three years ago in a Florida hotel.
