Back in 2012, several media outlets reported that a Kanye West sex tape was being shopped to various adult film distributors.
Somewhat embarrassingly, Kanye reportedly made the tape with a Kim Kardashian lookalike, back when the real Kim was still married to Kris Humphries. Perhaps that's why he's willing to pay big bucks to make certain the footage never goes public:
According to Radar Online, Kanye recently shelled out a seven-figure sum in order to ensure that anyone who attempts to sell or distribute the tape will face serious legal consequences.
“A Hollywood businessman who brokered other sex tapes with celebrities successfully negotiated the deal,” a source tells the website. “Kanye was very relieved! It would have been a disaster had it ever been released.
"The sex tape was shopped and there was a lot of interest, but behind-the-scenes, Kanye freaked out! He would have done anything to make sure it stayed private.”
Several sources have confirmed that there were at least two Kanye sex tapes in existence at one point, but it looks as though they've both been buried.
