It’s been over a decade since Kim Kardashian’s infamous sex tape with her then-boyfriend, Ray J, was leaked for the world to see.
“Kim Kardashian, Superstar” is the most-watched X-rated video of all time and many argue it laid the foundations for her global superstardom. But, for the first-ever time, Kim has addressed the leaked tape in an interview for New York Magazine.
The video was originally filmed in 2002 but wasn’t leaked until 2007, since becoming a well-known part of the beauty mogul’s past – and a part that she’s probably tried to forget – if fans would let her.
During her cover story for New York Magazine this week, Kim was asked about her “so-called leaked sex tape,” which has been released through Vivid Entertainment. The reporter noted that leaking intimate photos or videos would now be considered “revenge porn.” Though this isn’t too far from home, since Kim’s brother, Rob Kardashian, was at one point caught up in a revenge porn scandal by sharing ex Blac Chyna’s nude photos.
“Wow! I never even thought about that. I guess that question is a bit tricky. Not even for my situation, but because my brother did post photos of his baby mama and he’s in a revenge-porn lawsuit,” she answered.
“Obviously, I get the difference. And I would talk about me. But I don’t know the right thing to say without making him feel like the biggest piece of shit.”
Okay, so she did sidestep the question slightly and seemed pretty eager to move the conversation along, but at least we’ve had some kind of response, right?
The way in which the tape got leaked and released viva Vivid Entertainment has raised questions over whether Kim or her family has something to do with its release. Though she has always refused these allegations.
Either way, we’re sure she’ll be happy to leave it in the past.
