Kim Kardashian Sex Tape with Ray J
The film was released on March 21, 2007, by Vivid Entertainment. According to a press release they issued, they purchased the tape from a “third party” for $1 million.
In February 2007, before its release, Kardashian sued Vivid Entertainment for invasion of privacy and for the profits from and ownership of the tape. She dropped the suit in late April 2007, settling with Vivid Entertainment for $5 million.
In April 2016, Ian Halperin alleged in his book Kardashian Dynasty that Kardashian and her mother, Kris Jenner, deliberately leaked the sex tape to Vivid Entertainment. According to Halperin, “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 … It was Kris who engineered the deal behind the scenes [with Vivid Entertainment] and was responsible for the tape seeing the light of day”. On the release of Kardashian Dynasty, a representative for Kardashian and Jenner denied all of Halperin’s assertions.
