The rapper and the brunette stunner called it quitsin 2006 — and just one year later, their XXX footage was mysteriously leaked.
While the release marked the end of the stars’ steamy romance, it also marked the beginning of Kardashian’s multi-million-dollar empire.
REELZ’s new docuseries, Scandal Made Me Famous: Kim Kardashian, looks back at the KKW Beauty mogul’s early days as a wannabe TV star, and touches on her ability to turn even the nastiest scandal into a career-boosting gold mine.
“Ray J shot and directed the sex tape, and afterwards, he gave it to Kim for safe-keeping,” says Scandal Made Me Famous‘s Steve Helling in the show teaser.
So did Kim Kardashian leak her own sex tape for the sake of fame?
“Scandal Made Me Famous: Kim Kardashian” airs Saturday, July 21 at 9:00 ET / PT on REELZ.
