In the previous episode of the Hulu reality series, The Kardashians, Kim was crying uncontrollably after claiming that ex-husband Kanye had got hold of ‘unseen footage’ from 2002 preventing another leak. However, Ray J, who dated Kim for three years, has branded the whole narrative of the story as ‘lies.’
In a recent interview with DailyMail, Ray J revealed that the infamous Kim Kardashian s*x tape was ‘released like an album’ by Kim herself. Talking for the first time about that tape, Ray J said he had never possessed a copy of any of the tapes they made together, only holding on to photos and texts Kim sent him between 2002 and 2009. He also insists he never did any of the things she claims he did in the Kardashians’ new Hulu show.
The rapper was outraged by her suggestion he might have a video showing him ‘sticking a d**do in my a**’ which he says made him sound ‘like a rapist’ and was untrue. Moreover, the singer also shared a few private text exchanges with the reality star in which, Kim admitted that the d**do comment was not true. Ray J further said to the outlet, “I’ve sat in the shadows for over 14 years allowing the Kardashians to use my name and make million dollars.”
Ray J also insisted that he has never leaked anything, instead, “it was always been a deal and a partnership between Kris Jenner and Kim and me.” The former couple, who got together in 2002 when both were 21, made the infamous tape during her birthday celebrations that year. It was released in 2007. Ray J then added to DailyMail that putting out the video was his idea and he suggested it to Kim after they saw how Paris Hilton’s profile was boosted when the film she made with poker player Rick Saloman was leaked.
But while Kim claims she didn’t want to do it, Ray J says she embraced the idea and enlisted her mother Kris Jenner to organize its release via Vivid Entertainment. The eventual contract, which was signed by both Ray J and Kim, was for three videos including two s*x tapes. Meanwhile, only one tape was ever released and Ray J said that all of the intimate tapes were kept at Kim’s house in a shoebox under her bed.
Ray J now regrets his role in releasing the tape after he was publicly blamed for leaking it but has been unable to correct the record due to the contract that he had signed without legal advice. The Love and Hip Hop star said to the outlet that the tape and his role as the villain of the piece have blighted his career and relationships and even left him feeling suicidal at one stage.
