Kim K --

NOT Sex Tape

Mystery Buyer

9/10/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sex Tape Mystery Buyer
Kim Kardashian is NOT the mystery buyer trying to yank her infamous sex tape off the market -- this according to Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch, the man who currently owns the tape.

Hirsch tells TMZ, he still doesn't know who the mystery buyer is -- but a rep for the interested party insists ... it ain't Kim ... or anyone even remotely associated with Kim.

Steve tells us, "It made sense the entire time it would be Kim, but it appears it’s not.”

According to Steve, the buyer will reveal his identity if the deal gets done -- and explain once and for all why he/she wants to pull the tape from the market.

Steve says he met with the buyer's rep several times in the last week -- but the buyer's still several million dollars short of Hirsch's $30 million asking price.

A source close to Kim tells us, Kim NEVER had anything to do with the deal -- but she’s very curious about who's behind it ... and why someone she doesn't know would want to do her such a huge favor.

I think Hirsch planted the rumor himself

I like you TMZ. I won't pretend like others - I check your page a couple times a day no matter what you're headlining. However, KK is soooo boring. I don't even know what she stands for . . . is there any cause and /or opinion that is of substance? She and her family have somehow managed to cash in on something I don't understand . . . and, again, I do not understand. Do you find her interesting? Obviously, she translates to $$$ for many.

Kim is a cute but nothing more than that whore. Her azz is fat/fat and not desirable unless you are black or have a Flabby fat azz fetish. She is SO OVERRATED.

Loom this is a simple thing, it's called marketing.
1. Right before the wedding we have Steve Hirsch saying that the video is selling like hotcakes...we only have his word for that...and granted I don't doubt it was selling better but it's an old video, you can download it for free on thousands of torrent sites...not saying you should but its like saying you need to "buy" the Pari******on tape.

2. Adding the concept of someone buying it out for ever, in the wake of the dead cat bounce that the wedding supposedly gave to the tape imparts an urgency and a rarity to the video.
Again this is like have a bad show follow a great one on TV...the bad show gets a lead in and ratings based off of the good one....same thing here. Slight increase in sales, well lets add a "never gonna see it again" and see if that keeps the trend rolling.
All marketing....pure and simple.

I suspect the mystery buyer may simply request an evening with Kim at his posh hotel suite in L.A. as an expression of gratitude... and of course they simply had a candle lit dinner for two in the suite's dining room catered by room service. Nothing else happened, and Kim stayed the night in a separate bedroom of the suite after having one too many. It will all be very innocent and everyone gets what they want.

That's life in Hollywood.

If it isn't the Jenner/Kardashian Klan (or anyone connected to them like E! or Seacrest), it's Steve Hirsch himself. Like Ryan Seacrest, Steve Hirsch is yet another buddy of Harv-Harv Levin's. Give it up, TMZ. We get that you want to give Harvye's pals publicity, but people are catching on to the game now.

wtf    

i still don't understand this.

MILLIONS of people have this video, i have it, all my friends have.

why would anyone pay 30 million dollars?

let's say the "official" vid is sold, and the rights to the vid belong to some random as****.

so?

people will post it online until the END OF TIME.

once something is on the internet it WILL ALWAYS BE ON THE INTERNET.

but hey, give me 30 million and i'll promise not to post it.

Bull****. She's only doing this to drum up publicity, and there's so many copies out there that it's just focking stupid to think you'd be able to get rid of it at this point.
