As lawyers and lawmakers battle over video evidence in the Robert Kraft solicitation case, it appears some of that evidence has already gotten out.

Attorneys representing two women who allegedly worked at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Fla., filed a court motion Thursday accusing Florida prosecutors and police of leaking video evidence of Kraft and others at the spa.

The court motion cited a report published Thursday on The Blast, a celebrity news site that claimed it was contacted by an unknown person who claimed to have video of Kraft visiting the spa, where he was accused of exchanging money for sexual favors.

The Blast claims it has seen the footage and described it as such:

"In the video, the 77-year-old is already undressed and laying on the massage table with his hands placed behind his head. The camera angle is an overhead shot, and it’s believed the camera was placed in the ceiling."

While The Blast didn't reveal who contacted them, attorneys concluded in their motion that it must have been either the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office and/or the Jupiter Police Department, since they are the only parties that have possession of surveillance footage.

The court motion demanded police and prosecutors be held in contempt of court for a "direct violation of this Court's Order," per CNN.

Prosecutors said Wednesday they were obligated to release video evidence to the public, but a judge ruled in a court order later that day to block the release of evidence until there's a hearing.
