As TMZ recently reported, an unknown person is interested in purchasing the rights to Kim Kardashian’s infamous sex tape with Ray J. The mystery buyer’s lawyer explained, “The party we represent does not intend to distribute or broadcast the ‘tape’ but hopes to completely remove it from the market.”
So the question remains, who would want to buy the sex tape, and “any other footage you may have control over that involves Ms. Kardashian,” if they aren’t looking to distribute it?
Kim Kardashian NOT The Sex Tape Mystery Buyer
According to Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch, the man who currently owns the tape Kim Kardashian is NOT the mystery buyer trying to yank her infamous sex tape off the market.
Hirsch tells TMZ, he still doesn’t know who the mystery buyer is — but a rep for the interested party insists … it ain’t Kim … or anyone even remotely associated with Kim.
“It made sense the entire time it would be Kim, but it appears it’s not.”
According to Steve, the buyer will reveal his identity if the deal gets done — and explain once and for all why he/she wants to pull the tape from the market.
Steve says he met with the buyer’s rep several times in the last week — but the buyer’s still several million dollars short of Hirsch’s $30 million asking price.
A source close to Kim tells us, Kim NEVER had anything to do with the deal — but she’s very curious about who’s behind it … and why someone she doesn’t know would want to do her such a huge favor.
