Chris_rockWhen Hollywood's favorite private eye was indicted for wiretapping and racketeering, the industry's gossip hounds perked up at the potential for bombshell celebrity secrets to be aired. Now the Anthony Pellicano trial has finally provided some fodder for the tabloids.

A taped conversation between Pellicano and client Chris Rock has leaked, wherein the comedian is heard fretting about an affair he had that got ugly. The Huffington Post has the full tape. In the 31-minute conversation, recorded in 2001, Rock recounts to Pellicano the details of a date he had in 1998 with the model Monika Zsibrita. She later claimed she was pregnant with his child and that their sex wasn't consensual. No charges were ever filed.

It's a pretty graphic conversation, so we'll let the prurient click over at their own discretion.
