Kim Kardashian could be headed for another sex tape scandal with reports that an explicit video of the reality star might have been the most important item taken when she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
Kim has been all over the news for her robbery this week, where a gun-wielding person made off with a reported $10 million worth of jewelry that Kim happened to be wearing. The robbery has sent Team Kardashian into a tailspin with reports that Kim and Kanye West are rattled and dishing out big bucks for tighter security.
But the most valuable item may have already fallen into the wrong hands. Radar Online reported that Kim and her family are reportedly terrified that two cell phones stolen in the robbery might contain explicit videos or pictures that could come back to haunt them.
“Aside from tons of nude and explicit content featuring her and Kanye, the stolen phones also have so much information on all of Kim’s family members,” a source close to the couple told Radar Online. “They are all really freaking out because Kim’s phones had all of their personal info, such as phone numbers, email addresses, schedules, production dates, and much more!”
If there is a sex tape on the cell phones stolen this week, Kim Kardashian could also become the target for extortion, the report added. That fear might be a motivation for Kim and her inner circle’s all-out effort to find the people responsible for the robbery. Radar Online reported that she had halted production of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, so they could put all the effort into finding the person who held Kim up.
“Kris has halted production while the family figures out how to rearrange all of their schedules so that their itineraries and schedules do not match what Kim had on her phone,” the insider added.
Even though Kim Kardashian kicked off her career thanks to a sex tape with singer Ray J, she has since transformed her image into a more television-friendly reality star. Though Kim still posts many racy (and sometimes even nude) pictures on social media, her image for television has cleaned up considerably, and she is now worth a small fortune between her television show and multiple business ventures.
A sex tape could put all of that at risk, which may be leading Kim Kardashian into her dogged search for the robbers.
There could also be a very big price tag on a true sex tape featuring Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Earlier this year, when rumors spread that Kim’s half-sister, Kylie Jenner, might have a sex tape of her own, experts said it could fetch $10 million or more.
A source told OK! magazine at the time interest in a potential Kylie Jenner sex tape was very high.
“The insider revealed that the head of Vivid Entertainment Steve Hirsch, who released Kim’s 2006 sex tape with Ray J, offered the 18-year-old $10 million for a sex tape with Tyga.”
And there is a chance that $10 million would just be the starting point. The reports at the time (before Kylie’s public denial that any such tape existed) claimed that her boyfriend was planning to get even more money out of it.
“[Tyga] understands that the industry wants to see them get down and dirty in one big explosive sex tape,” a source told Hollywood Life. “He’s down to do that, but he wants more than $10 million… For Tyga to do this, he’s looking for some serious meal tickets and knows he and Kylie can command way more than $10 million. He thinks that offer should be doubled for how he’s willing to get down on film.”
It’s also not clear yet how much truth there could be to the rumor that Kim Kardashian has another sex tape floating around. So far, there is nothing on the record beyond unnamed sources, and Kim’s camp has said nothing about it.
