R&B singer Ray J is reportedly going to give Kim Kardashian and Kanye West a wedding day present they’ll never forget in the form of profits made from his ex-girlfriend’s now-infamous sex tape. #SexSells
According to reports, Ray is expected to fork over nearly $50,000 from payments he received courtesy of their “Superstar” adult recording.
It’s breathtaking on 2 levels — that Ray J has such humongous cajones, and that the tape is still raking in a fortune after 7 years. Here’s the breakdown of the wedding gift. Mind you, this is just Ray J’s cut: — January $6,135.60 — February $20,097.31 — March $9,674.76 — April $10,931.52 — TOTAL: $46,840.13 Now get this … sources from Vivid Entertainment tell us the tape has grossed $50 MILLION! Remember, we’re told Kim gets AT LEAST as much as Ray J, though we don’t know exactly how much. (TMZ)
Despite mounted speculation and heat weighing on Ray J’s head, the singer said he was not concerned about his ex-girlfriend last year
“I’m not thinking about that,” Ray said in an interview when asked for his take on Kanye not responding back to him. “We didn’t do this record to get a response from nobody. Like, we did this record for people to go to iTunes, pick the record up, when you hear it in the club, you go crazy. If you want to pop it on your iTunes that’s in your phone and have a crazy conversation about what it is, that’s what we did it for. We run an independent company and we having fun. … The thing about it is I’m not saying anything to nobody. The record speaks for itself. The record is so over-the-top that for us to go into the interviews and go crazy over some sh*t, it’s too much. It’s distasteful.” (“Street Sweepers Radio”)
Days prior, Ray denied having any ill feelings directed toward Mr. West.
“Yeah, he’s a great dude,” Ray said in an interview when asked if he had ever met Ye before. “I have nothing but respect. Even in these interviews I don’t really go into a lot of detail about that situation because it’s not my place to. For me it’s staying focused on the concept at hand and to me that’s Ray J, that’s this wild lifestyle that we live and the experiences that we have within this lifestyle.” (The Boom Box)
KimYe’s highly-anticipated wedding date was confirmed for May 24 in Italy last week.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will marry in Florence, Italy, on May 24. The power couple will tie the knot in the 16th century Belvedere Fort, a spokeswoman at the Florence mayor’s office told the Associated Press. The couple rented the fort, located next to Florence’s famed Boboli Gardens, for €300,000 ($410,000), said Elisa Di Lupo, and a Protestant minister will preside over the ceremony.
