Ray J has ‘leaked’ Kim Kardashian ‘text message’ screenshots about their famous tape.
The reality TV star’s ex, whose real name is William Ray Norwood Jr, has made some explosive new claims about the incident in an interview with MailOnline.
Ray J has claimed that he ‘never leaked’ the viral video and went on to allege that it wasn’t actually leaked at all.

Instead, the rapper has alleged that it was ‘deal and a partnership between Kris Jenner and Kim and me’.
When the SKIMS owner’s new Hulu reality show premiered last month, called The Kardashians, Ray J supposedly exchanged messages with the mum-of-four via Instagram.
Allegedly, he said: “You know what we did! Your mom controlled this whole s** tape deal.”
However, his ex reportedly didn’t confirm or deny his claims. Instead, she focused on her new programme’s storyline and how it mentioned the tape, with the blame being put on his manager.
Elsewhere in the interview, the 41-year-old claimed that he was the mastermind behind the tape after he saw how it boosted Paris Hilton’s celeb profile when she made one with poker player Rick Saloman.
Ray J claimed that after pitching the idea to the Kardashian, her mum ended up getting involved in making an actual deal happen.
Recalling the alleged plan, he explained: “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.”
He went on to allege that he was never in possession of the video, adding: “I never had a single one at my house – she had them all at her house. She’s always had all the tapes in a Nike shoebox under her bed.”
Allegedly, an eventual contract – which apparently both he and the reality star signed – stated that three tapes would be made.
It’s believed the alleged contract stated that it would include two videos (one made at Esperanza Hotel in Cabo San Lucas and the other in Santa Barbara). Supposedly, a third tape was listed as an ‘intro’ to the Cabo content.
Despite Ray J’s claims, only one tape was ever made public.
Discussing his allegations, he went on to claim: “She kept them all – she had to go find that tape [Cabo #1] and then present it. I never had a tape in my possession in our whole relationship.”
