In light of the recent Kevin Hart Sex tape scandal, it got me to thinking. Kim Kardashian really became famous from her Sex tape with R&B singer Ray J. She was more of an L.A. socialite before all the fame. Kim’s father was considered the actual famous one, if you want to call it that. He was O. J. Simpson friend and attorney during the very infamous O.J. trial, in which O.J. was accused of murdering his wife and her male friend.
This year represents the 10year anniversary of the sex tapes release. We all know how this story turned out. It launched Kim Kardashian to a level of fame that rocked the entire world. The ironic thing about it all is that somehow the actual famous one, Ray J, became less famous after the release. He was seen by the masses of white America as a predator. Kim was viewed as a victim who was manipulated by this black man.
From this very Sex tape the entire Kardashian family has amassed a fortune. The mother, Kris Kardashian, was the architect behind it all. She basically used the Sex tape as a stepping stone to Kim’s stardom. It was as if she was using Kim like a pimp would do a prostitute. At the time it just seemed all wrong. The damage had already been done, so why not capitalize off it? As of today Kim Kardashian net worth, according to Forbes, is at $44.5 million. It’s astonishing how one can become rich and famous behind a celebrity Sex tape; when one wasn’t even a celebrity. Not to mention it enriched every member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
After the release of the Sex tape, came the reality tv show that’s still airing today. The whole family came up off a Sex tape. It’s amazing
