Kris Jenner Didn't Negotiate Kim's Sex Tape Deal

Ray J insists Kris Jenner was smack in the middle of negotiating Kim and Ray J's sex tape, but we've learned the businesswoman of the century was hands-off when the deal was cut.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, Kris never negotiated with Vivid Entertainment, which distributed the tape back in 2007. We're told Kim and Ray J dealt with Vivid directly and with their lawyers.

In his interview, Ray J maintains Kris and Kim hatched the plot to make and peddle a sex tape in the wake of the enormous financial success of Paris Hilton's. Sources on the other side dispute that, maintaining she had nothing to do with planning the tape, and we've learned Kris was hands-off making the actual deal and had no contact with Vivid.

Of course, that doesn't mean Kris wasn't working behind the scenes, as Ray J claims.

As we've reported over the years, although the Kardashians claimed they never signed off on the tape, the reality is that Vivid could not have released it without the signatures of Kim and Ray ... if it did, there would be a slam dunk lawsuit, because Vivid could not use the name or likeness of anyone on tape without their consent.

Kim actually sued Vivid before the tape was released and that lawsuit was dropped ... we're told because she and Ray cut the deal they wanted and that cleared the path for the release of the video.

As for $$$ ... we've learned Kim and Ray split a $1 million advance, and together they got a percentage of profits from the tape. It's the highest-grossing sex tape of all time, beating out Paris Hilton's.

Ray J Kim K Sex Tape 'Leak' Concocted ... Me, Her & Kris Involved

Ray J is speaking his truth about his ex, Kim Kardashian -- and that would be ... the infamous sex tape "leak" that put her on the map wasn't an accident at all, but a planned event and the Kardashians were in on it.

The singer spilled the alleged beans to -- telling the outlet he's furious the Kardashians have essentially accused him of holding an unreleased sex tape over their heads ... and that he was the one who leaked the OG tape in the first place.

He insists the truth is the exact opposite -- namely, that the "leak" wasn't that at all ... but a systematic deal brokered between himself, Kim and Kris Jenner and Vivid Entertainment.

Here's how it allegedly went down, according to Ray J ... he says that while he and Kim were dating, he jokingly floated the idea of putting out a sex tape of theirs in the wake of Paris Hilton's video leaking -- which elevated her status and celebrity.

While he claims he didn't really mean it, Ray alleges Kim jumped on the idea ... going to her mom, talking it out and then getting the wheels in motion on the whole thing, which he says he was not really privy to until it came to signing away the rights.

Ray says he and Kim both signed a contract, and the rest is history.

Here's the fascinating thing ... the guy claims all the original sex tape footage -- including a SECOND one he says they shot in Santa Barbara that is unreleased thus far -- has always been in Kim's possession ... in a Nike shoebox under her bed.

Ray claims he's never been in possession of any copies, and that he's been fuming over the fact the Kardashians have made it seem of late he had more footage and that he was on the verge of releasing it. He did, in fact, give Kanye West a computer and hard drive with some personal content between him and Kim ... but argues there was nothing explicit on it.

One other thing ... it sounds like the Kardashians themselves might've triggered his rage here with their new Hulu series. In one of the first few episodes, Kim and co. apparently joke about Ray putting a dildo in her butt, which he's irate over ... saying they made him look bad.

It'll be interesting to see how the Kardashians respond, especially since Kris/Kim have long denied being involved in the release of the tape ... despite most people not believing them.

Kim Kardashian Kanye Makes Emotional Appearance on 'The Kardashians' Kim Breaks Down in Tears


Kanye West appeared for the first time on "The Kardashians" and he came off as the hero, as Kim Kardashian sobbed after he retrieved the hard drive containing her full sex tape video.

It's a fascinating encounter ... Kim and Kanye were going through their divorce at the time, but he seemed like family as he first interacted with a very grateful Kris Jenner before watching Kim unzip the suitcase that contained the hard drive.


Ye flew from New York to L.A. to meet Ray J at the airport, and that's when Ray presented Ye with presumably all the raw video.


As you know, there were stories floating around that another sex tape was in the offing ... something that alarmed Kim enough to sick her lawyer on whoever was about to release it.

Turns out the hard drive was proof positive, no other footage exists ... therefore, no new sex tape.

The interaction between Kanye and Kim is interesting ... they seem to have a real connection ... something that later evaporated as Kanye went in hard on Kim's new BF, Pete Davidson.

The encounter at the end of the clip is super interesting ... there's clear affection between Kris and Kanye.

Kim Kardashian Sobs Over Possible New Sex Tape ... Worries Ray J May Have Used Foreign Object While She Slept


Kim Kardashian is using the full force of her celebrity to ensure another sex tape isn't released -- we knew that -- but now we hear her on the phone with her lawyer, and, well, she's pretty graphic about foreign objects and whatnot.

The convo between Kim and legal pit bull Marty Singer is there for all to hear on the debut of "The Kardashians" on Hulu, and Kim clearly means business.


The trigger for the emotional conversations is Saint seeing a meme on a videogame touting a new KK sex tape. As we've already reported, she says she's 99% sure there's no new footage from her encounter with Ray J, but there's a level of uncertainty. She says, "What if I was f***ing sleeping and he stuck a d***o up my ass? I don't know."

Kim asks Marty to "scare the s**t out of Ray J's manager ... mostly to protect her kids.

What's especially interesting ... Kim is on the phone with Kanye as she bemoans the situation, and it seems he provides her a measure of comfort.

She says during the episode, "For 20 years this has been held over my head, of this mistake, or is it a mistake? This was my boyfriend of years. We go on a trip, we film a video. It's embarrassing for me to be out there, but it's not the most scandalous thing and I'm not going to be made to feel this way. I'm just human."

Kim Kardashian No New Ray J Sex Tape ... On Laptop Kanye Retrieved

There's apparently only one Kim Kardashian and Ray J sex tape in the Universe ... and while Kim's thankful Kanye recently retrieved a laptop with footage from Ray, we're told there's nothing sexual about the unseen content.

Kanye made waves during his Hollywood Unlocked interview Monday when he shared he'd delivered the device to Kim during her recent stint on 'SNL,' causing her to cry happy tears when she saw it.

Many speculated the laptop contained a rumored second sex tape between Ray J and Kim -- but a rep for Kim tells us that's just not the case -- "After review, there was nothing sexual unseen, only footage on the plane on the way to Mexico and footage at a club and restaurant on the same trip. Kim remains firm in her belief that there is no new second tape that exists." Page 6 first had the statement.

Sources close to Kim tell us while the sex tape has been a source of embarrassment, she won't forget Kanye's gesture in retrieving the material from Ray J.

The source notes that both Kim and Kanye are sensitive as co-parents, and how the continued talk of the tape may affect their kids, "Especially when it's continued to be brought up in a way that's thoughtless and intended to cause more pain."

Interestingly -- it's been Ray J's former manager, Wack 100, who teased the existence of a second sex tape since last year -- and Kanye's been hanging with Wack lately. Kanye says he had met with Ray in Florida and was given the laptop.

It sounds like Kim wants to leave the sex tape stuff behind, with her rep telling us, "After 20 years, she truly wishes to move on from this chapter with focus instead on the positive things she continues to do as a mother, entrepreneur and advocate for justice reform.”

2019 MTV Awards Stars Shine, Princess Love Squirms ... During Zachary Levi's Kim K Sex Tape Joke

Zachary Levi didn't waste time firing zingers during his opening monologue at the MTV Movie & TV Awards ... most laughed sans Princess Love.

The star-studded affair was taped Saturday at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica but aired Monday night. Jada Pinkett Smith (Trailblazer Award) and The Rock (Generation Award) were just some of the honorees. Hollywood's heavyweights rolled through ... from Tiffany Haddish and Tessa Thompson to Elisabeth Moss and Melissa McCarthy.


But, things got off to an awkward start during Zachary's opener when he decided to go there. As Princess Love and Ray J sat side by side ... Zachary delivered a Kim Kardashian sex tape joke.

Check out the clip ... Ray J stands up when he hears his name but moments later is reduced to sitting with a blank stare on his face after Zachary's punch line. Princess Love was none too amused ... giving cameras the double bird.

See, awk. Guessing a great time was still had by mostly all.

Michael Blackson to Kim K Don't Blame Ecstasy, Thank Ray J And His Famous Genitals!!!


Michael Blackson thinks Kim Kardashian should quit blaming ecstasy and spend way more time sucking up to Ray J for his sizable role in launching her celebrity.

We got the comedian at LAX Tuesday and asked him about Kim claiming she was high on ecstasy when she and Ray shot their infamous sex tape, and in a word ... he's disappointed.

Michael thinks it's wrong for her to make it seem like the drug is the only reason she banged Ray J on cam, because that doesn't give enough credit to Ray's family jewels.


As we first reported ... sources close to Ray J insist Kim never touched ecstasy during the taping of their sex tape. Michael thinks it's a bit fishy for Kim just now mentioning the drug ... so many years after doing the deed.

Don't worry though, Ray's not getting the short end of the stick -- Michael dishes plenty of props to "d**k and balls!"

Kim Kardashian I Was High on Ecstasy ... During Sex Tape, First Wedding


Kim Kardashian says her jaw was shaking while she filmed her infamous sex tape with Ray J, but it's not what you think ... she was rollin' on X.

Scott Disick pulled it out of her during a convo on 'KUWTK'. The mother of 3 -- who is now super straight-laced -- recalled how she used the drug during her sex scene and during her first wedding ... the one to music producer Damon Thomas in 2000.

So, to hear her tell it, those were the only 2 times she did the drug -- "I did ecstasy once and I got married ... I did it again, I made a sex tape. Like, everything bad would happen."

Kim said her wild side is still there ... "I still can do crazy things." Well, not like that.

Ray J Sex Tapes Are So 2000's ... Get Over It, Kardashians!


Ray J has grown up a lot since his 2003 sex tape with Kim Kardashian ... and thinks everyone else should too.

We got the singer out Monday night at Craig's and asked if he'd seen Kylie Jenner's alleged sex tape with Tyga -- which turned out to be a hoax.

Doesn't sound like he's keeping up with the Kardashians all that much anymore ... but he does have some thoughts on the retro bedroom kink.


Ray J to Kanye West You're a Shameless Hypocrite

Kanye West is a hypocrite for embracing his wife's sex tape now that it suits his purposes, after blasting Ray J for daring to write a song about the famous video ... at least that's what Ray has been telling his crew.

We're told Ray is livid that Kanye rhapsodized about the sex tape during the VMAs ... even giving him a shout-out. You'll recall after Ray J dropped "I Hit it First," Kanye called him "Brandy's little sister" and threw in "lame" for bad measure.


Ray J can't do anything about his cameo in the "Famous" video, but he's not happy about it ... and it has nothing to do with shame over the sex tape. He just feels Kanye is two-faced for turning his nose up at the tape but then embracing it to make a buck.

We're told Ray is also pissed that Kim trashed him after he released "I Hit it First," but then grinned ear to ear at the VMAs when Kanye referred to the sexual tryst that made her untold millions of bucks.

Larry Flynt Jr. Kylie Jenner Can't Hustle Me ... That's a $1 Million Ass, At Most!


Kylie Jenner should snatch the $10 million to do a sex tape and never look back ... because no less a XXX authority than Larry Flynt Jr. says that's way more than she's worth on the open porn market.

The Hustler king was at Craig's Thursday night ... and we asked about the offer Vivid Entertainment has on the table for the 18-year-old to go all "Kim K. Superstar."

Larry laughs off the ass-tronomical figure, but does admit there's a market for Kylie -- and floats a hypothetical offer for her to do the nasty for Hustler.

He also takes a jab at Vivid's honcho. Porn-on-porn violence ... it's gotta stop.

Amber Rose Attacks Kim K What a Nut!!!

Amber Rose just answered Kayne West by zeroing in on the climactic scene in Kim Kardashian's sex tape, saying "Wait 30 Showers? But Kim let RayJnut on her .... Never Mind."

In case you're not up to date ... Kanye went on "The Breakfast Club" and said it was hard for him to move on to Kim after being with Amber, saying, "I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim."

Amber is not backing down. She's already called Kim a whore and Kanye is doing Kim's bidding.

Amber went on to say, "[A]fter all these years I never snitched on u and I don't plan on starting now. We once loved each other so I won't do u like that."

She concluded by saying, "I'll leave that up to the Kartrashians to humiliate u when they're done with u."

The only true surprising thing ... how come Ray J hasn't inserted himself?

Kim Kardashian Ray J is Back ... And He's Moving Next Door!!!

Ray J is like a bad habit Kim Kardashian just can't kick, because he's just made an offer to buy a house on her street!

Kim's former sex tape partner just wrote a $2.7 million offer to buy a Hidden Hills mansion 8 doors down from Kim and Kanye.

Ray and his business manager, David Weintraub, perused the grounds Friday afternoon and then wrote the offer. BTW, it's pretty baller ... there's even 3 horse stalls.

As for why he wants to live so close to Kim, Ray says it's already his hood. He lived in the vicinity longer than Kim so if anything she's the carpetbagger.

How much would you pay to watch Ray J knock at Kim's door for a cup of sugar and Kanye answers.

Ray J Kim's Vajayjay Gave Me a Huge Payday

Ray J has a knack for making money when Kim Kardashian gets naked ... and he hit the jackpot again with last week's nude photos.

The photos triggered renewed interest in "Kim K Superstar," and our sources at Vivid Entertainment say sales of the video have dramatically spiked ... so much so, Ray J will pocket $50K from the last week alone ... way up from what's he's been getting.

Ray has been getting around $90K every 3 months, so this is a real ass-tronomical increase.

Steve Hirsch, president of Vivid Entertainment, tells TMZ, the most recent spike makes "Kim K Superstar" the biggest selling celebrity sex tape of all time.

Until last week, the title holders were Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee.

Kim Kardashian Kanye West Sex Tape DOES NOT EXIST

Don't get your hopes up -- a new Kim Kardashian sex tape featuring Kanye West will never see the light of day because ... it just doesn't exist.

Sources close to the couple say Kim was purposely being coy during her recent British GQ interview ... where she hinted about doing a sex tape sequel -- this time with Yeezus.

Kim told the mag, "My husband Kanye and I have an amazing sex life. So far as the sex tape is concerned, whether or not we've made another ... If we have, it's never something I want to go public."

We're told what really happened is that Kim didn't wanna talk about her sex life because she's super private about that -- and instead of just shutting down the interviewer ... she decided to playfully tease.

Kim should know ... the Internet don't play when it comes to sex tapes.

Ray J Kim K Sex Tape Regrets ... I Never Shoulda Banged 'Bitches' On Camera

Regrets ... Ray J's had more than a few, and he lays them all out in a new song that includes a not-even-thinly veiled shot at his ex sex tape partner Kim Kardashian.

In "Never Shoulda Did That" ... Ray confesses and sorta apologizes for a bunch of crap. But the line that will have Kim's ears ringing -- "f***ing bitches on camera, shouldn't a did that s***."

He also cops to taking drugs, fighting in clubs, yelling at friends, and cheating on his GF Princess Love -- who makes a cameo ... we're told that's her drunkenly weeping on a voice mail in the song.

Here's the thing ... Ray J may sing he shouldn't have banged Kim, but we know his bank account screams otherwise. He's still making coin off of "Kim K Superstar."

All the other stuff -- he probably does regret ... and should.
