Reality TV star Kim Kardashian and rapper Ray J’s infamous s*x tape leak was one of the biggest scandals that were witnessed. The tape has been brought to the spotlight again after Kim Kardashian spoke about it on her show The Kardashians. Reportedly, the rapper and Kim K both made huge profits after the release of the tape. The tape made over $100 million and both the parties have been receiving their respective shares. A source revealed how much the rapper made from the infamous tape.
Who Leaked Ray J and Kim Kardashian’s Tape?
Ray J recently gave an interview where he revealed who was behind the leak of his s*x tape with Kim Kardashian. He said that the person behind the leak was Kim K’s mother Kris Jenner. The reason behind the leak was stated to be “boosting Kim’s career”. Although, sources have come out to deny Ray J’s claims.
They claim that Jenner wasn’t behind the leak, but it was the couple. Reportedly, Kris Jenner never negotiated with the distributors of the s*x tape. Back in 2007, the rapper and Kim dealt with Vivid Entertainment, the distributors, themselves. It was also revealed that the release wouldn’t have been possible without both of their signatures. If the tape was released regardless, the distributors would’ve been in for a huge lawsuit.
