Kimberly Kupps began the weekend by logging onto Twitter and greeting her 672 followers: “morning fellow tweeters happy Friday…”
But the day wouldn’t end happily for Kupps, a name that Polk County deputies say is the porn-video persona of Lake Wales resident Theresa Taylor.
She and her husband, Warren Taylor, were jailed Friday night after a deputy spent three months investigating porn videos the couple made at home and sold online, arrest reports say.
Theresa Taylor was set to be released Saturday night after posting $7,500 bail. Warren Taylor remained jailed.
The Polk County Sheriff’s Office began investigating Theresa Taylor, 55, in March after receiving tips that she was making and distributing porn from her home at 926 S. Lakeshore Blvd., her arrest report said.
An investigator paid the initial $19.95 membership fee to her website, kimberlykupps.com, where he found videos of Theresa Taylor having sex with men and women, as well as offering some of the clothes she wore in the videos for sale.
The investigator downloaded six videos, burned them to CDs and allowed County Judge Reinaldo Ojeda to review them. On April 7, Ojeda ruled the videos were obscene material under state law.
The investigator also noted in the arrest report several messages sent by Theresa Taylor through her Twitter account since June. In one, Taylor said she had finished filming a porn video at her home with a “good looking male subject from Italy.”
During questioning, Warren Taylor, 58, said he filmed the videos downloaded by the investigator and uploaded them for sale on the website clips4sale.com. The husband said the couple made an average of $700 monthly for the past four months.
Warren Taylor was booked on six counts each of wholesale promotion of obscene material and distribution of obscene material, a misdemeanor.
