Kim Kardashian Addresses Ray J Sex Tape ‘It Was Devastating To The Whole Family’
It’s been roughly 10 years since Kim Kardashian West and her then boyfriend Ray J’s sex tapes hit the internet. And while they both have gone on to get married and have kids with other people, some suggest that the tape is reportedly Kardashian’s claim to fame. So it’s no surprise that it was addressed during her “True Hollywood Story” special. On the episode, a narrator says:
“Kim’s dreams of success were almost derailed early in her career.”
Kardashian then said,
“Before ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’, when all that sex tape stuff was happening, it was really, really hard. It was devastating to the whole family.”
An old interview of Kardashian shows her telling a reporter that she didn’t think the sex tape was wrong because she was “very much in love” at the time.

Meanwhile, her now husband Kanye West has no issue swooning over his wife of five years. While it’s been a minute since he sat down and did an interview, it looks like he made an exception for the “True Hollywood Story” feature.
“If Kim is speaking body language, then shes the mother f***in dictionary.”
“Any time I was around her, I saw her, it was a magnetic attraction to this force of energy. She was good, pure, happy, loving, brave, courageous, strong.”
Kardashian also dished on their romance and explained,
“We just always kept connecting and coming into each other’s lives. And, then he invited me to Paris to his fashion show and that’s when it happened. That’s when we started our relationship. Then I was like, ‘Sh*t. Why didn’t this happen sooner?’ It was just right.”
West and Kardashian sparked lots of controversy when they started dating. But Kardashian said West didn’t mind choosing her over the possibility that his career would take a dive because of his relationship with her.
“Everyone would tell him, ‘You can’t be with her. She’s a reality star. She’s gonna sink your career.’ And, he was just like, ‘But I love her. I don’t care.'”

The two ended up tying the knot in May 2014, and now have four children together.
