Kris has long been at the centre of vicious rumours surrounding Kim K and Ray J’s infamous sex tape – with many people believing the mum and daughter duo released the tapes in an attempted PR stunt. 

Both Kim and Kris have vehemently denied this, with Kris once again explaining she wasn’t behind the video’s release in a recent appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden

The tape, which was made in 2007, continues to draw speculation and Ray J is clearly not impressed with Kris Jenner bringing it back into the spotlight. 

The rapper and reality star, 41, took to Instagram on Saturday with over 44 minutes of video, in which he shares documents and Dm’s in an attempt to prove Kim and Kris leaked the tape.

“You know what we did! Your mum controlled this whole sex tape deal with Joe Francis and [Vivid CEO] Steve Hirsch – it was her idea to put out the tape with Vivid. All I did was agree,” he said. 

“Now you want to make it seem like I’m doing it again without your control. All those fake tears. Your fans trusting you to be honest and sincere but it’s all fake for the cameras. I was playing my part until you started doing all of this!” 

“What are you trying to ruin me when you know I was just a player in this! You have to stop believing you own lies! I have to let the world know the real [because] you’ve taken it too far now. Somebody needs to explain the play you are doing to me ASAP or I will have no choice but to protect my brand and family and expose real.”

Ray J also shared his supposed original sex tape contract which stipulated that both he and Kim would receive USD$400K.

“There’s no way I could use Kim Kardashian’s name in this contract if she wasn’t a part of it, right?” he said.

“I got 12.5%. Kim got 12.5%. She’s got the same exact contract as I got so when we go to court, guess what? They gotta pull that up because we gotta see that.”

Ray J proceeded to compare the handwriting in the contract to Kim’s handwriting in an attempt to clear his name. 

He also claimed that fingerprints on the contract matched Kim’s and that Kris was involved – even choosing her favourite of the clips to be released. 

“She watched and said ‘We’re gonna go with the first one ’cause it’s better, it gives my daughter a better look’,” he alleged.

The majority of his rant-style Instagram video was focused on an episode of season one of The Kardashians, where Kanye West personally retrieves a laptop from Ray J that allegedly contained more footage from the original sex tape. 

Viewers saw Kanye get involved after Ray J’s manager Whack 100 said there was another tape named “Santa Barbara,” however Ray J is denying the whole interaction. 

“Don’t tell nobody I gave this sh** to you. You want to go tell the world you got this laptop from me … Dog, you’s a clown, bro,” Ray J explained.

He also shared screenshots of text messages between himself and Kanye, with Kanye asking him to “hop on the phone later today to clear this all up.”

In the messages, Kanye also explained that it was Ray J’s manager Wack who said the tapes existed – and were sitting in a safe.

Despite Kanye retrieving the supposed additional footage, Kim Kardashian remains adamant that no more footage exists. 

She “remains firm in her belief that there is no new second tape that exists” explained a rep to Yahoo Entertainment

“After 20 years, she truly wishes to move on from this chapter with focus instead on the positive things she continues to do as a mother, entrepreneur and advocate for justice reform.”
