Kim Kardashian is reportedly ‘calling in lawyers’ to help block her sex tape partner Willie ‘Ray J’ Norwood from ‘leaking raunchy recordings.’
The 41-year-old reality star’s ecstasy-fueled sexploits from her 22nd birthday in Cabo San Lucas in 2002 with her 41-year-old ex were famously released by Vivid Entertainment in a 41-minute DVD titled Kim Kardashian, Superstar in 2007.
‘Kim knows that Ray J made other tapes of them together. Some of the footage will be incredibly intimate,’ a . told The Sun on Sunday, April 10, 2022.
‘She has told lawyers, “Over my dead body is this happening again.”‘
It’s unclear if the threatening footage was part of the alleged second sex tape on a hard drive that Kim’s estranged third husband Kanye ‘Ye’ West claimed he bought from Ray J.
‘I went and got the laptop from Ray J myself,’ the 44-year-old rapper-designer said in a January 24 interview with Hollywood Unlocked.
‘I met this man at the airport, then got on a red-eye, came back [and] delivered it to her at 8 a.m. in the morning…She cried when she saw it. You know why she cried when she seen it on the laptop? Because it represents how much she’s been used. It represents how much people didn’t love her, and they just saw her as a commodity.’
The very next day, Kardashian denied t. was an second sex tape.
‘After review, t. was nothing sexual unseen, only footage on the plane on the way to Mexico and footage at a club and restaurant on the same trip,’ her rep told People on January 25.
‘Kim remains firm in her belief that t. is no new second tape that exists. After 20 years, she truly wishes to move on from this chapter with focus instead on the positive things she continues to do as a mother, entrepreneur, and advocate for justice reform.’
The SKIMS CEO’s statement seemed to prompt the Mississippi-born R&B singer to tweet on January 26: ‘This needs to stop. I also have kids.’
The latest drama over the sex tape came 10 months after Kim admitted Keeping Up with the Kardashians would not have been as successful had it not been for all that publicity.
‘Looking back, probably not,’ Kardashian told moderator Andy Cohen during the KUWTK 20th season reunion in June.
The E! Network reality series famously premiered in 2007 just seven months after Vivid purchased the 2002 tape from a ‘third party’ for $1 Million.
The aspiring attorney reportedly dropped her invasion of privacy lawsuit against Vivid and received a $5 Million settlement.
Kim was then asked what she’ll tell her six children – North, 8; Saint, 5; Chicago, 4; and Psalm, turning 3 next month – whenever they uncover their mother’s sex tape past.
‘I haven’t had to as of yet,’ Kardashian said.
‘And luckily I think that so many years have gone on and so many things have happened positively that it really erases that. It is something I have to live with for the rest of my life.’
In 2016, Ian Halperin accused the half-Armenian beauty and her momager Kris Jenner of ‘engineering the deal’ to ‘deliberately leak’ the sex tape for publicity.
‘When it comes to selling a sex tape, both parties need to sign off,’ Halperin wrote in his book Kardashian Dynasty.
‘It is clear that Vivid would not have announced plans to distribute Kim’s tape without a clear indication from the family that they would give the go-ahead once they had come to terms on a price.’
A rep for Kim told Page Six at the time: ‘All the assertions are false.’
Many point to Kardashian learning the reality TV ropes from former boss Paris Hilton, whose own Vivid Entertainment sex tape made her even more famous in 2004.
However, the 41-year-old hotel heiress’ Fox show The Simple Life premiered six months before her ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon signed off on releasing their 2001 on-camera tryst titled 1 Night in Paris.
Like Kardashian, Paris settled her lawsuit against Saloman, who also sued her for defamation, for a reported $400K.
