Kim Kardashian’s ex Ray J reveals two masterminds behind sex tape ‘leak’ & exposes damning new ‘texts’ from SKIMS mogul
RAPPER Ray J has spoken out about the sex tape he made with Kim Kardashian, claiming that the model and her mother, Kris Jenner, orchestrated its release.
Ray J- real name William Ray Norwood Jr. – recently accused Kim and Kanye West of lying about the rapper flying to Los Angeles to retrieve the infamous sex tape.
In an exclusive interview with The Daily Mail, the singer explains his side of the story, claiming Kim has the only copy of the explicit tape, and other steamy recordings the former couple made together.
The 41-year-old also claims that the beauty mogul's sex tape "was released like an album" by Kim herself and that he never had possession of anything the pair filmed.
Ray J and Kim began dating in 2002 when they were both 21 years old and created the tape during her birthday festivities.
It was later released in 2007, making the model a household name.

The Mississippi native admitted that making the video was his idea, inspired by Paris Hilton's boost to fame after her sex tape with poker player Rick Saloman was leaked.
Despite Kim's claims that she was against making the video, Ray J insisted the Hulu star favored the idea and asked her mother, Kris to help.
He explained it was the 66-year-old momager who organized the tape's release to Vivid Entertainment under Kim Kardashian: Superstar, with whom he had little involvement.
The exes signed a contract for three videos, including two sex tapes, one created by Esperanza Hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and another made in Santa Barbara.

A third tape was listed as an intro to the Cabo footage.
The video made in Cabo was the only tape to be released, which Ray J claims Kim has possession of in a shoebox under her bed.
"It was something we did in Cabo on a trip for her birthday, and it was something extra we were doing in the hotel," he said.
"She kept them all – she had to go find that tape [Sex Tape Cabo #1] and then present it. I never had a tape in my possession in our whole relationship."
He continued: "I never had a single one at my house – she had them at her house. She’s always had all the tapes in a Nike shoebox under her bed.
"I’m sure she has bigger beds now and better boxes. That’s how it all came about. Once I pitched the idea to her, just playing around a little bit, that’s when she jumped on the idea, talked to her mom and it was out of my hands from there."
RAY J'S DEFENSE
The Love and Hip Hop star maintained his innocence in the tape's release, explaining his decision to talk about the leak now.
"I’ve sat in the shadows for over 14 years, allowing the Kardashians to use my name, to abuse my name, make billions of dollars over a decade-and-a-half talking about a topic I’ve never really spoken about.
"I’ve never leaked anything. I have never leaked a sex tape in my life. It has never been a leak. It’s always been a deal and a partnership between Kris Jenner, and Kim and me, and we’ve always been partners since the beginning of this thing," he added.
The father-of-two also claims the tape has hurt his career and romantic life, confessing he struggled with mental health and suicidal thoughts.
"I felt suicidal because when you know something’s real, and it’s true and you’re watching a whole family create an empire from a lie they’ve created, it’s heartbreaking and disrespectful to all the entertainers who have been honest and true to their craft.
"As a black man living and working in America, it’s hard to get up every day and look out at the water or look at my family and know that they think something about you when you know it’s 1,000 percent the other way. How do you live like that?
"I couldn’t be a part of any reputable major network television show and do Dancing with the Stars, and do America’s Got Talent or anything like that because of my image.
"Because of what they made me, I’m not allowed to be in those places."
"For me, I’ve been walking on eggshells thinking I’m going to get in trouble for telling the truth, and I’ve been holding onto it for the past 14 years and watching them humiliate me. They’re celebrating my destruction."
Another reason the reality star wants to clear his name is for the sake of his children: daughter Melody Love, three, and son Epik Ray, two.
He stressed the importance of his daughter knowing that her father is not "a bad guy who exploits and disrespects women."
Ray J's frustration continued: "Where in this whole story did Ray J become the person who leaked the tape and who’s made their lives miserable?
"How do you believe that Ray J is the enemy of all enemies when we’ve been partners from the beginning of the sex tape being released up until now? We’re all still making money.
"But yet you go with defame me and blame me over and over, and I can’t do nothing but defend my honor and speak out and tell the truth."
Despite dealing with the aftermath of the sex tape's release for nearly two decades, the TV star admitted he reached his breaking point when Kim created an entire storyline around it on her new Hulu series, The Kardashians.
In April, Kim and Ray J's sex tape also made the top hits list on the popular adult site Pornhub.
In last week's episode of the show, Kim broke down in tears while showing her mom, sister Khloe Kardashian, and several gal pals a suitcase containing pieces of a computer housing the sex tape.
She claimed the Donda rapper "flew home and got the computer – it [the sex tape] was on the hard drive and met up with Ray J at the airport and got it all back."
Ray J fired back on social media saying Kim and Kanye's claims were 'untrue."
"All of this is a lie smh – Can't let them do this anymore – so untrue -," he wrote in the comments after Hollywood Unlocked shared the scene online.
Later in the episode, Kim claimed that the laptop only contained video of her and Ray J eating at a restaurant, which the One Wish singer also said is false.
He told the outlet: "It wasn’t a sex tape – it was a lot of pictures, a lot of little mini videos and a lot of proof we’ve been talking over the years. If you send me an email in 2008, the computer doesn’t change the date on it.
"So, in 07 it happened [Kim got in contact], Kanye could see we were talking consistently in 07, 08, 09 through her sending me texts and videos and stuff.
"I was proving to him, I’ve never been the enemy. I’ve never been the person who they say I am. If that was the case, why are you guys trying to brainstorm, come up with ideas with me and make me do what you guys say do.
"You want me to continue to act the bad guy and you guys have brainwashed me into thinking that’s OK."
He continued to bash his ex, saying he has no intentions of trying to "ruin" the family.
"She knows there’s nothing else. I don’t have a tape to leak. I’ve never leaked a tape. I don’t have a plan to ruin them.
"When I put on the comments that all of this is a lie, I didn’t mean Kanye coming to meet with me about some second sex tape.
"I mean all of this is all a lie. From the beginning of us putting this sex tape out, this has been the biggest lie in the industry in the history of entertainment.
"They’re not letting the world know that there’s a bunch of sex tapes that we made but they’re not going anywhere because she has them all.
"I’ve never had them to watch and to enjoy," he added.
Ray J then opened up about a discussion he had with Kim via Instagram direct message to address her claims on the show.
He detailed the conversation, saying: "I felt like this was her only chance to try and make this right. In the texts, I demand her to call me immediately, or I’m going to go and tell my story.
"So she responds immediately with all of these different plans and ideas that will make me feel better.
"At the same time, you’re [Kim] telling the whole world that I’m a horrible person and I haven’t spoken to you and how could I do this to you?
"If you look at the DMs, you can see that she’s continuing to try to keep me in a box – only what she can do to make me feel better after they killed my name.
"Only because she knows everything I’m saying is true – she never denied on these DMs anything that I’ve told her.
"I asked her on the DMs, how do I explain to my daughter this is a lie. If you’re worried about your family, what about my family?
"If they didn’t come back and show how they really were, how greedy and slimy they really were, I would never have had the enthusiasm or the will to go out and speak my truth."
Copies of the text messages were obtained by TheDailyMail.com.
'KILLS MY SOUL'
Ray J said that he expects repercussions regarding his choice to speak on the matter but felt it was important to voice his side.
"Now that I’m a father, it kills my soul to think my daughter would have to go through life thinking her dad was something that he wasn’t.
"You can’t give me any money. You can’t pay me for my life back. You can’t pay me for honesty and truth.
"You can’t pay me any money or apologize to me for any of that. You have to be honest with yourself at this point. I don’t need an apology – I have proof.
"I just want my daughter and my son to appreciate what I’ve done here on Earth and know that their dad doesn’t go for exploiting women, disrespecting women and leaking footage of someone who didn’t give permission.
"This has been a burden for me. It’s been an embarrassment for me. My family have questioned my integrity, who I am as a person.
"Up until now, even some of the people I’m close to – when I tell them what I’m going through, it’s really hard for them to believe, with all the things they’ve [the Kardashians] done and said about me over the years.

"I can’t live the rest of my life in this lie. This morning, I woke up and said, you know what? For the remainder of my life, I’m going to live in my truth and not in the lie that’s been created by Kris Jenner and Kim.
"I will not let them do this to me anymore," he concluded.
