Why Kim Referenced Her Old Tape on Show Premiere

Kim Kardashian cried over her old sex tape on The Kardashians premiere and fans are questioning why she brought it up on the new show.

Kim Kardashian cried over her old sex tape on The Kardashians premiere and fans are questioning why she would even bring it up on the new show. Fans are still discussing the events that played out on the family’s return to reality television. On the premiere, Kim cried Kanye West in tears after their son Saint West showed her a Roblox message he received related to her infamous sex tape with Ray J. The phone call created a new Kim crying meme and also raised a debate about the X-rated tape still being referenced nearly 20 years later.

Despite being a billionaire business mogul, international superstar, prison reform advocate, and mother of four, Kim Kardashian can’t seem to shake her infamous adult tape. Back in 2007, she secured a reality show around her family of KarJenners dubbed Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The show premiered in the months after the release of Kim’s infamous sex tape with her ex Ray J. Many have accused the tape of being the start of Kim’s claim to fame. Kim has worked hard to earn her respect as a public figure and shake the stain left by her leaked sex tape.

But there are some who claim the tape wasn’t leaked and that Kim and Ray J were paid off with the assistance of Kris Jenner. Reddit user u/DivaAdventures1230 shared a screenshot of a blogger claiming that Kim’s tape was actually a “movie that she signed off to commercially release,” VladTV claimed. “She was paid several million dollars before it ever sold a copy,” they wrote. Yet many fans question why the tape is still being brought up so many years later and why Kim would even give the tape a mention on her new show. “No one cares now except her,” one Redditor said. “I’m not a fan of kim, and she might be lying, but it was in the past. let it go,” added someone else.

Many defended Kim while also noting the tape shouldn’t have been referenced on the new show. Bringing it up on the show’s first episode paralleled the tape being referenced in the KUWTK premiere where Kris acknowledged it. “She said as her mother she was was really upset, but as her manager she saw the upside,” one Redditor wrote. Another said Kris’ comment “set the tone” for where she planned to take her family regardless of the scandals tied to their names. Another fan questioned if Kim referenced the tape in the Hulu premiere to garner sympathy from fans over the fact it’s still being brought up.

Not only is the tape still being referenced, but now Kim’s kids are getting old enough to understand. Saint is still young and innocent enough to not fully grasp the intent behind the Roblox message he received. But it was a sign of what could continue to happen as Kim’s kids grow older. The Kardashians star was emotional over the reality her past is still coming back to haunt her. She chose to share it with their world because it’s what she gets paid to do.
