The book written by Ian Halperin, even claims the tape was not an accident. Everything was planned by the reality star and her mum. .........
“A mutual friend of Kim and Paris [Hilton] had advised her that if she wanted to achieve fame, a sekks 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 and was responsible for the tape seeing the light of day,” although he added this had been long rumored in the showbiz world. The author claims he pretended to sell another celeb sekks tape so he could speak to a Vivid spokesperson, who he claims told him.
“When it comes to . . . selling a sekks tape, both parties need to sign off.”When asked how Kim’s sekks tape got out, the rep replied, according to the book: “A third party brought it to Vivid . . . [We] got in touch with the Kardashian family.”For some reason, I don't believe this...........the whole family has iced the other actor in the tape....Ray J. Oh well!! It may be another tactic by the family so they won't have to pay him his cut. :-)
“So why not work for us, and we’ll make sure that it will not only get out, but that it will be distributed the way you want.” The rep supposedly continued, “You’ll get a nice payment for it,” adding, “I can tell you right now. Kim Kardashian’s movie came out in ’07, and she’s made millions.” Kim threatened to sue Vivid and was paid a reported $5 million settlement, but the tape was still released.
“It is clear that Vivid would not have announced plans to distribute Kim’s tape without a clear indication from the family that they would give the go-ahead once they had come to terms on a price.”
