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'...

wtf    

i refuse to believe anyone is this retarded. paying 30 million dollars won't remove the sex tape from existence. it's already out. i have it. millions of people have it. that video will be online for ever. someone will always post it online. in a million places. face it slut, you let a black guy pork you and pee on you, and the whole World saw it. 300 kajillion dollars won't make the tape disappear.

Oh please; this is just another promotional push to sell more copies of whoretrashian getting railed & then pissed on. Both these attention whores happily signed on the dotted line to sell the film, both of them promoted the sale of the film by lying to anyone who would listen ("Boo hoo; they're releasing it without my permission!"), and both of them made millions off of it. They made their choices, now they have to live with their decisions. Definitely another con job by a pair of whiny self absorbed arrogant losers...

Why even buy the rights to the tape - to try and pull it from the market? Do you know how many d@mn people OWN that DVD? It will never go away KK or RJ. What's done is done. It's all over the place - there is probably a couple copies in every frat house in America and abroad. At this point, you buying the rights for such a high amount is a waste of your time and money.

You guys are sick, leave her alone, this is against the law and the guy is probably the one who gave the tapes to them in the first place, Vivid Entertainment should be forced by law to give her the tapes and sued for the leaks onto the internet and to private buyers

This is just a publicity stunt. By the way, just because you hadn't heard of Ray J before the sex tape doesn't meant he wasn't famous. He is a successful singer and real estate investor. He had fans way before the sex tape. Kim on the other hand is "famous" simply because of the sex tape.

Kris HUMPhries can pay 100Mil for the video, it doesn't change the fact he married a two bit whore, No amount of cash can ever make her clean. Ray J doesn't own the rights to the film he gets nothing, just whatever STD he caught from her

I don't see this as a '$30 million' deal? Unless you plan to seriously market this in the American South at $39 per DVD... and Kim wrote promote this. She's not going to have a booth to sign copies of this DVD; even if she owned all the profits! Though Ray J is a bit of a 15 minutes of famer... If he's willing to sit in a dunking tank and we could throw balls at him for 25 cents a pop? He could make a whole $20 a day? He's reaaal talented...not.
