A new book is claiming that Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner deliberately leaked Kim’s sex tape to make her famous.
A lot of you might be thinking ‘no shit’, but there’s never really been much evidence to back it up.
This footage was thought to be the catalyst to help the Kim Kardashian and the rest of the clan to gain reality television fame and fortune with Keeping Up With The Kardashians. But now a new book claims this wasn’t all done by accident.
The soon-to-be released tell-all, Kardashian Dynasty by Ian Halperin, claims that Kim had signed a contract with Vivid Entertainment to leak the sex tape she had made with singer Ray J in 2003, according to Page Six.
Halperin spoke to 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.
To make matters worse, it seems she did it all with the help of ‘momager’ Kris Jenner. A former friend of Kim had told Halperin: “It was Kris who engineered the deal behind the scenes and was responsible for the tape seeing the light of day.”
The author posed as a someone looking to sell another sex tape of a star and speaking to a Vivid spokesperson, they told him: “When it comes to selling a sex tape, both parties need to sign off.”
A rep for Kim has since come out and said: “All the assertions are false.”
But, if these claims do turn out to be true, it would truly be a sad reflection of what we’d do in this day and age to achieve celebrity status and the riches that come with it.
