Seems like Kim Kardashian’s rise to fame was more calculated than we originally have thought.
The story behind Kim’s infamous sex tape with Ray J continues to circle back around every few months with a bit more information involved.
A new book written by Ian Halperin titled Kardashian Dynasty is set to be released, and it has some very revealing information on the behind the scenes of one of the most infamous sex tapes of all time.
Halperin claims Kris Jenner was behind the leak in the first place.
According to Page Six:
Halperin also says a former friend of Kim had told him, “It was Kris who engineered the deal behind the scenes and was responsible for the tape seeing the light of day,” although he added this had been long rumored in the showbiz world.
He quotes a source in the “adult film industry” who said, “A mutual friend of Kim and Paris [Hilton] had advised her that if she wanted to achieve fame, a sex tape would be the way to go . . . Kim had discussed the idea of producing a tape with her family beforehand.”
Not groundbreaking news, but it is interesting to see how the sex tape was allegedly released on the back end of things, a tape that according to a rep from Vivid Entertainment says, “I can tell you right now. Kim Kardashian’s movie came out in ’07, and she’s made millions.”
Apparently Karrine Steffans has some things to say about that.
