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'...

The two of them make an absolutely ridiculous looking couple. I don't give this marriage a year. Neither one of them have much of a brain. Mama wanted a wedding and a big venue to plan.

I usually don't comment on stories because I think the TMZ community is a bunch of creeps. But if vivid manages to sell this for 30 million its the biggest scandal since watergate, there are bootlegged copies of this everywhere, its probably not worth anything, I understand the private party probably more so wants to halt the selling of it more than caring about the value, but they can not possibly pay anywhere near that amount, that is insanity.

The state of California is a pimp for allowing the distribution of sex tapes without the permission of both parties. The stae is in it for the tax receipts. The state should be prosecuted for profiting from sex tapes distributed without the permission of all parties.

Good for him! it'a about time that he get his own reality show, becomes famous for nothing, marries some WNBA player and lets TLC record it. We totally need more reality shows out there to choose from.

Kim should have called me before she did the sex tape, I had better advice for her but of course she would have still done the tape anyways. Now this sex tape will follow her for the rest of her life. Kris H must be really proud. www.sean-hill.net

Who the hell is Ray J Anyway? I remember he was supposedly the "famous" one when it came out. Like a bunch of the reality Scars these are people you only know if you hang out in bars in L.A. No one else knows who they are or cares.

Ray's lawyer thinks this is a nightmare for his client? The guy keeps it in the news all the time! Two losers got together and taped themselves--stupid on every level. I'm sick of this story.

Correction, Kim is a smart businesswoman.......Smart whore who sold one of the most intimate moments a couple can have to the devil! She prostituted herself for fame and fortune and there is no way in hell she will be able to erase the past! Her future children will eventually find out about the xxx video.

Ray J hasn't had a meeting where the tape was not mentioned? That's because he brings it up!

I haven'*****ched the tape and won't as I'm not interested in that garbage. People live with regrets all the time unfortunately she's has to live with hers publicly. Hopefully she will continue to speak up about the stupidity of doing something like this so young girls will avoid this type of thing.
Bottom line, if you don't want people to see it, don't tape it!!
