So Kris Jenner didn’t sell Kim Kardashian’s sex tape?
Last week, rumors circulated that Kris Jenner sold Kim Kardashian’s infamous sex tape to Vivid Entertainment, which … d’uh. Honestly, if this turns out to be true, it would probably be the least surprising thing I’ve ever heard. “Kris sold Kim’s sex tape. Huh. Yeah, I can see that. This mayonnaise has 25% less fat than the leading brand? WITCHCRAFT!” Well, now Vivid is rebuking the claims, saying that Kris would never do something that totally fits into her wheelhouse. Via The Examiner …
Vivid Entertainment, the company that released the Kardashian video in 2007, has come forward to state that Jenner had no hand whatsoever in pushing the X-rated clip. According to a follow-up story by Celebuzz on Friday, August 10th, Vivid is setting the record straight. “Every so often someone comes out with a bogus story about Kim’s sex tape,” claimed Steven Hirsch, founder and co-CEO of Vivid Entertainment. “Let me be perfectly clear, Kris Jenner had absolutely nothing to do with the deal and ultimate distribution of Kim Kardashian, Superstar. To suggest anything different is both ridiculous and irresponsible, period.”
No, of course Kris didn’t sell the tapes. She just let Kim walk into Vivid Entertainment, sign page after page of release forms that would allow them to legally put the tape on the consumer market, provide them with two pieces of valid government issue I.D., and then allow the entire family to profit off the sex tape which could have been easily buried at the time using the family’s already existing bank account and lawyers because this was back before Kim was even remotely noteworthy. But selling it? Now that would be just wrong.
