It’s alleged in Ian Halperin’s ‘Kardashian Dynasty’ that Kim masterminded the idea to launch her into fame and fortune with his mother and manager, Kris Jenner.
Investigative journalist and author Ian Halperin quotes a source from the “adult film industry”, who told him:
“A mutual friend of Kim and Paris [Hilton] had advised her that if she wanted to achieve fame, a sex tape would be the way to go . . . Kim had discussed the idea of producing a tape with her family beforehand.”
One of the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star’s former pals also told Halperin: “It was Kris who engineered the deal behind the scenes and was responsible for the tape seeing the light of day.”
After the footage was supposedly ‘leaked’ Kim signed a deal with Vivid Entertainment so that she would be able to benefit from the proceeds of the video.
Vivid maintain that the tape was given to the ‘by a third party’ and not the Kardashian family.
A rep reportedly said: “A third party brought it to Vivid . . . [We] got in touch with the Kardashian family.”
The Kardashians are yet to comment on these latest claims however, have in the past strongly denied similar rumours.
