We recently reported there was a mystery buyer on the prowl offering to shell out a ton of cash to make sure E! star, Kim Kardashian’s, sex tape disappeared from the Internet. After chatter erupted that the buyer might be the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star herself, it’s now confirmed she is not. Read on for the details…
Kim Kardashian’s sex tape is still looming on the Internet, but thanks to a mystery buyer it might not be for long. It’s now revealed the mystery buyer, who has representation, is not Kim Kardashian or Kris Jenner.
Vivid’s Steve Hirsch, who currently owns the tape, confirmed to TMZ Kim was not the buyer, saying, ”It made sense the entire time it would be Kim, but it appears it’s not.”
Steve Hirsch went as far as to tell TMZ the buyer would reveal everything once a deal is made for the tape — that includes his motives for wanting it off the market.
Wait, the word “he” was blatantly used — interesting.
Hirsch was in contact with the mystery-man’s rep a few time as early as last week, but they’re still a bit short on the cash — several million dollars short! Hirsch is asking $30 million for the tape.
A source reportedly chummy with Kim Kardashian admitted she’s curious as to who the mystery buyer might be, but never had a hand in the deal herself.
Someone’s going to owe this person a huge fruit basket if the deal goes through. Getting that tape off the Internet would be a big weight off of Kim K’s newlywed shoulders.
Who do you think the mystery buyer is. We don’t think Ray J would cough up the cash. Could it be her hubby going rogue on the situation? Interesting to think about, right?
