Ray J is apparently trying to make amends with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian in the form of a wedding gift. The 33-year-old is reportedly offering them a portion of his sex tape profits. He and Kim made an infamous sex tape together that leaked online in 2007. Kardashian catapulted to fame as a result.
TMZ reports that Ray J is offering Kardashian and West $47,000, which represents four months of his 2014 profits. In total, Vivid Entertainment claims the film has grossed $50 million.
Though Kardashian and Ray J broke up years ago, it seems the rapper and Brandy’s younger brother is still not over the curvy star. Last April, Ray J apparently wanted to make sure people remember that he was with Kardashian before West.
In the music video for his single, “I Hit It First,” the leading lady looks exactly like Kardashian and in one scene even rolls around on a bed with Ray J during filming of a homemade video. Ray J sings, “I had her head going north and her a-- going south/But now baby chose to go West,” and he makes numerous references to Kardashian liking basketball players and athletes. Ray J has denied the song is about the reality star and West.
"It's a song, it's not about that, it's about a concept," he said in a radio interview with New York radio station 97.1. "People going way too deep. They just gotta keep it on the surface [sic]. I'm not trying to create no war. It's all love; we're doing music.”
Though West did not comment on the song, he stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s talk show days later to perform his song “Bound 2” which is off his new album “Yeezus,” and changed some of the lyrics. Dissing Ray J, the 36-year-old rapped, "Brandy's little sister lame, man, he know it now. When a real brother hold you down you supposed to drown."
Meanwhile, West and Kardashian are in Paris ahead of their May 24th wedding.
