In the statement, Dee said the acquisition was a "strategic move in many aspects," including the addition of a "different interactive/community-type product that our affiliates can earn off of."
Dee highlighted several benefits Rude.com offers, including more than 2.1 million active members, more than 1,100 live cam houses and a dating community.
"If you browse around Rude, you'll see that there is just so much to do," he said.
Dee's statement also addressed recent claims that Rude.com features stolen content.
"Rude.com is not an illegal tube site," he said. "It's an interactive community more than anything. I would be completely against the acquisition if the original business model and reason for growth was the user-uploaded stolen content.
"You can be damn sure that we are going to keep stolen content off the site. If that means we have to stop user uploads completely and our approval system isn't working, then that's what's going to happen. As a person that spends millions on exclusive content, I am completely against stolen content or even full-length videos being given out for free."
