Musician Ray J ‘breaks the silence’ and says there’s a second Kim Kardashian sex tape: ‘I won’t let them do this to me again’
Before Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson, before Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, there was Kim Kardashian and singer Ray J.
In the infamous sex tape that “leaked” years ago, it was Kardashian and Ray J in the sheets together.
And while the story goes that their sex tape was leaked by an outside source, says Ray J, it was the Kardashian clan that did it, according to DailyMail.
Speaking to DailyMail, Ray J said he never owned a copy of the soundtrack – or any later tape, which he suggests it still does. And he probably never divulged anything.
He also says he’s never done anything Kardashian claims to have done on the new Hulu show. He actually said he felt outraged by her suggestions that he might have a video of him sodomizing her.
According to a text message shared to the DailyMail story, Kim said, “If you’re upset with the dildo comment it was clearly a sarcastic joke and I laughed when I said it.”
Said Ray J to DailyMail, “I’ve never leaked a sex tape in my life. It’s always been an agreement and a partnership between Kris Jenner and Kim and me and we’ve always been partners since the beginning of this thing.
Added Ray J (born Ray Norwood), “I sat in the shadows for over 14 years, allowing the Kardashians to use my name, abuse my name, earn billions of dollars over a decade and half talking about a topic I’ve never really talked about.
Ray J and Kardashian met in 2002 when they were both 21 years old. They made the now infamous sex tape, which oddly and calculatedly made Kardashian an internet star and celebrity on her birthday that year. It came out in 2007.
Ray J says it was his idea to initially release the video and he suggested it to Kardashian after seeing the response to Paris Hilton’s tape with poker player Rick Saloman, which came out before theirs. Ray J says Kardashian enlisted his mother, Kris Jenner, who released the tape through Vivid Entertainment.
According to DailyMail, there was also a contract signed by Ray J and Kardashian for three videos, including two sex tapes: one made at the Esperanza Hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and another made in Santa Barbara. And a third tape which is listed as an intro to the Cabo video. But in the end, only one tape, the one shot in Cabo, was released. Ray J says the rest is kept by Kim “in a shoebox under her bed.”
He says: “She kept them all – she had to go get that tape [Sex Tape Cabo #1] then present it. I never had a tape in my possession in our entire relationship.
“I never had one in my house – she had one in her house. She always had all the tapes in a Nike shoe box under her bed.
“I’m sure she has bigger beds now and better boxes. That’s how it all happened. Once I pitched the idea to her, just playing around a bit, that’s when she jumped at the idea, talked to her mom and it was out of my hands from of the.
Today, Ray J says he regrets his role in the releases, since he was publicly accused of leaking the original. He adds that he was never able to correct the lies due to the contract he signed (without legal advice).
He says: “I felt suicidal because when you know something is real and it’s true and you watch a whole family create an empire out of a lie they created, it’s heartbreaking. and disrespectful to all artists who have been honest and true to their craft.
“As a black man living and working in America, it’s hard to get up every day and look at the water or look at my family and know they mean something to you when you know they do. is 1000% the reverse. How do you live like this?
“I couldn’t be on a big name TV show and do Dancing with the starsand do America’s Got Talent or something like that because of my image.
“Because of what they did to me, I have no right to be in these places.”
He continued: “For me, I walked on eggshells thinking I was going to get in trouble for telling the truth and I’ve been hanging on to it for 14 years and watching them humiliate me. They celebrate my destruction.
He said he was now ready to let go of the lie and wanted the truth to come out.
He explained, “How do you think Ray J is the enemy of all enemies when we’ve been partners since the sex tape first came out until now? We all continue to make money.
“But yet you keep defaming me and blaming me over and over again and I can do nothing but defend my honor and speak up and tell the truth.”
The final straw for the singer came when the family made it into a script for their new Hulu show. Ray J even caught up with Kardashian’s ex-husband Kanye West to talk things over.
Of that meeting, in which Ray J showed West all the evidence of their interactions, Ray J said, “I was proving to him that I had never been the enemy. I’ve never been the person they say I am. If so, why are you trying to brainstorm, brainstorm with me, and get me to do what you say to do.
“You want me to keep playing the bad guy and you’ve brainwashed me into telling me that’s OK.”
As the DailyMail story goes on at length, one of the last points Ray J made in the article was that now that he’s a father, he wants the record straight.
Says Ray J, “Now that I’m a father, it kills my soul to think my daughter should go through life thinking her father was something he wasn’t.”
He added: “I won’t let them do this to me again.”
