Ray J Wants

Another Piece of Kim K

Ray J
thinks it's a fabulous idea for Vivid Entertainment to sell the rights to "Kim K Superstar" ... so long as he gets a big piece of the action.
 
TMZ broke the story ... an undisclosed private party has offered to buy all rights to the XXX flick from Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch -- which he told TMZ is worth at least $30 million.  The buyer indicated he (though we're guessing it's a she) wanted to take the video off the market.

TMZ has obtained a letter from Ray J's lawyer to Hirsch, in which the attorney makes it clear ... Ray J has partial copyright ownership in the video and "any attempts to transfer the copyright outside of these parameters will result in filing a motion with the courts to seek an injunction of any sale until Ray J's rights are protected." Translation -- he wants some serious cash.

The letter also says the video has been a pain in the ass for Ray J:  "... my client rarely has a conversation with industry professionals where the Tape has not been mentioned or questioned ... no amount of money can relieve him from this nightmare."  The lawyer didn't mention how much money Ray J has already made from the video.

As for Kim's financial interest in the tape ... no one is talking, but the video has made untold millions, and Kim is a smart businesswoman. We're just sayin'...

Yes he can't stand that the tape is out there, before that tape no one knew who he was and Kim was just the daughter of one of the guys who helped a murderer go free.

how in the hell is this little douche bag considered famous. He is so full of himself, and he is a total nobody. He screwed a scank. Does this qualify for making him famous ? Unbelievable. America, there are so many teachers, cops, fireman, doctors, nurses, etc out there that save lives and help mold our children to be future leaders. These should be our role models. Not ray-j. please.

Ray J should just be happy that his name has made the news again...trashy news, but hey, he did a porno with a trashy broad. I liked it better when no one mentioned him, and can't wait till the Kardashian name disappears as well.

who dat    

The peeps at tmz are chumps and believe any story that is fed to them. Somebody in the Kardashian family had a lawyer float that phony offer to Hirsh. This is about more free publicity and NOTHING else.

I think I'm the only one in the US who has NOT seen the sex tape nor do I want to but Ray J's camp probably told him how he can make even more money from the tape and he would be a fool if he didn't try.

He is or was a half owner just like Kim was half owner so if the mystery person(IMO its mama pimp) wants to pay 30 million to Steve Hirsch then they have to pay serious money to Ray also because he has rights to the sex tape too, at least that's what his lawyer is trying to say.

Kim was the one who really benefited from the tape now Ray J want his bigger slice of the pie to. Didn't he text Kim and said if it wasn't for him she wouldn't be where she's at today. lol

I doubt very seriously if the sex tape has been a nightmare for Ray J. He's probably proud that he has screwed and pissed on a woman that most men dream about. The only one who should be living in a nightmare about this sex tape is Kris Humphries.

well- there is the reason he was talking it up saying it was worth more!
when that was first reported here, I commented that I could see only 3 reasons that he would say anything like that
--he was either trying to talk the price up because he was getting a percentage
--he had an over-inflated sense of his appeal
thinking his performance was all that
--or he was an idiot
.............
so we see that he's all 3!
doesn't make me happy that I nailed it
depressing that people like him even exist!

It's all about the money as always. Who cares about the tape. This has been all over the net for free. He just wants money.

.................
thank you for being one of the people like myself who has not/will not see the tape
they say "garbage in ..garbage out"
not calling Kim K garbage-far from it
she was a young girl who had a terrible moment of judgement that is haunting her forever because of the idiot that she trusted at the time
it happens al the time
how many young girls do we hear/see who trusted idiots and ended up pregnant only to have the idiot publicly denying he was the "baby daddy" while calling the humiliated girl a "ho"?
this is the same thing more or less with the girl getting all the fallout and harsh judgment
............
going out of you way to view this or anyone's private tape made public without consent from both parties is VOYEURISM...PLAIN AND SIMPLE
you're not peeking through windows but you might as well be
loading you soul/psyche/brain whatever with things like that is the garbage that goes in to you and it can't help but come out in the person that you are
when you consciously choose to find the video and watch it- it actually tells the universe more about YOU, than it does about Kim K or anyone else...even if you are doing it secretly and in private
and if you felt righteous doing it..then why in private?
................
sad that so many people have lost empathy
the ability to walk a mile in someone else's shoes to see how they feel...everyone is so judgmental..
AS IF WE HAVE THE RIGHT!!
