Ray J has threatened to stop the sale of Kim Kardashian’s sex tape until his “rights are protected”.
According to TMZ.com, the 30-year-old singer doesn’t mind that the world will continue to see the sex tape starring him and Kardashian as long as he gets a big cut of the sales.
The celebrity gossip website has obtained a letter from Ray J’s lawyer to Vivid Entertainment’s co-chairman Steve Hursch, making it clear that he has partial ownership of the video.
“Any attempts to transfer the copyright outside of these parameters will result in filing a motion with the courts to seen an injunction of any sale until Ray J’s rights are protected,” the Daily Mail quoted the letter as saying.
The singer is said to have already benefited financially from the prior sales of the tape, which is worth 30 million dollars, although his lawyer’s letter says it has caused him nothing but immense pain.
“My client rarely has a conversation with industry professionals where the tape has not been mentioned or questioned,” Ray J’s lawyer wrote.
“No amount of money can relieve him from this nightmare,” he added.
