Kim Kardashian shot to fame following the release of her sex tape with rapper Ray J in 2007, but now a source has come forward claiming that the reality star’s mother Kris Jenner orchestrated the tape’s release!
An insider has come forward, saying that the 56-year-old “momager” helped set up the sale of the video. “Kris was totally involved in arranging the sale of Kim’s tape,” the source claimed.
“The video already existed, and Kris was there every step of the way as a middle man brought in to market it to an adult entertainment company.”
The source also added that Kris was thrilled to find out the tape, released by adult company Vivid Entertainment, was titled Superstar.
“That must have thrilled Kris since you could hardly call Kim a household name at that point in time,” the insider added. “I saw Kris Jenner’s signature on the contract; I believe she got somewhere between $250,000 and $500,000 for the original deal with the middleman.
“Everything she does in this world, every decision she makes on her daughters’ behalf, is based on greed and publicity. And has nothing to do with her family’s stability or happiness.”
Back in June, reports emerged that Kris had instructed Kim to re-shoot the video because it wasn’t “pretty enough”.
A Kardashian spokesperson has yet to respond on the allegations, but because they’ve dealt with these rumours in the past, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if they don’t.
