Even if you've never actually watched it (we're not here to judge!), by now you likely know all the details of the Kim Kardashian sex tape and how it came to be.
Or do you?
There's not much of a plot in the video itself (though there's certainly a climax! Hi-oh!), but the tale of the tape itself is the stuff of legend.
Basically, it's the story of how a well-heeled, blended Calabasas clan becoming one of the most famous families in the world.
And not surprisingly, Kris Jenner masterminded the whole thing. For years, it's been more or less taken for granted that Kris planned the release of Kim's sex tape.
But now, a new tell-all by author Ian Halperin will reportedly blow the lid of the surprisingly elaborate plan to make Kim the world's most highly-paid "amateur" porn star.
“Kris was totally involved in arranging the sale of Kim’s tape,” Halperin claims in the upcoming Kardashian Dynasty.
Halperin quotes various sources who confirm that Kris had very specific plans for how to profit from the Ray J sex tape.
While, at the same time, making it appear to the public as though the footage had been stolen and leaked. Diabolical.
“It was Kris who engineered the deal behind the scenes and was responsible for the tape seeing the light of day,” says one insider.
“A third party brought it to Vivid. Then [we] got in touch with the Kardashian family,” a rep for the well-known adult film production says.
The rep for the company tells Halperin, "I can tell you right now: Kim Kardashian’s movie came out in ’07, and she’s made millions.”
Of course, the profits from the tape pale in comparison to the hundreds of millions that Kim and her family have made in the years since.
Having gained fame from its release, they parlayed that into Keeping Up with the Kardashians and a massive entertainment empire.
Say what you will about Kris Jenner's scruples - the woman literally tried to trademark the word Momager. She knows how to turn a buck.
Shameless, she may be ... but she's good at it.
