We now have more information on how Kanye West helped Kim Kardashian get the remaining footage from her infamous sex tape.
In the most recent episode of her family’s new Hulu reality series ‘The Kardashians’, the mogul broke down in tears after West – who now goes by the name Ye – met her ex-boyfriend, singer and entrepreneur Ray J, to obtain the computer containing the hard disk containing the images.
The 2007 tape, filmed when Kardashian and Ray J were dating at the time, spawned what would become the E! reality show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”.
Kardashian said West retrieved the footage not only for her, but also for the four young children they share.
“I want to protect them as much as possible,” she said. “And if I had the power or if Kanye had the power, like that, that’s just the most important thing to me. And I’m so emotional because of that.
This all happened last year, before Kardashian hosted “Saturday Night Live,” where she appeared with her boyfriend, actor Pete Davidson.
Their relationship apparently motivated West to share during an interview with “Hollywood Unlocked” in January that he had obtained the rest of the taped footage for Kardashian, who filed for divorce from West in February 2021.
“How you gonna take me to ‘SNL’ and kiss the guy you’re dating right in front of me?” West said during this interview. “And everyone’s like, ‘Oh, that’s, that’s cool.’ After I went [and] I got Ray J’s laptop myself that night, didn’t I? »
Kardashian was declared legally single in March.
In the reality TV episode, West said he didn’t pay anything for the rest of the tape, which Kardashian said didn’t contain any additional intimacy scenes, just footage of her and Ray J. being in a club and a restaurant.
