It’s hard to think about a time when the whole world didn’t know Kim Kardashian. Back in 2007--- before the Kardashians had achieved world domination--Kim was just Paris Hilton’s bff and a rising star on the cover of Complex magazine who told a little fib that she never had a sex tape.
“There is no sex tape!” she exclaimed when asked about a sex tape existing with boyfriend Ray J. “Ray J’s not the kind of guy who would do something for revenge. There is no amount of money that could ever convince me to release any tape, even if I had one. I don’t need the money!”
Kim, who calls herself a “Princess” in the interview, claimed her skills in bed to be superior to mere mortals, rating herself a “20” on a scale of one-to-ten. Why? “I’m really passionate and sensitive. I don’t really have sex with people I don’t have a connection with, and if you have a connection with someone, it’s so much better.”
Once the infamous sex tape went viral, Kim 'fessed up in a follow-up interview with the magazine. “Well at that point I really didn't think that one was coming out,” she defended her initial stance. “I mean of course I knew that we had one tape, but it was a few different times throughout the few years in our relationship. I obviously knew that that existed, I just never thought that it would happen.” She continued, “[Ray J] made a comment about a sex tape on my Myspace page months ago—he was kidding, but people took it the wrong way and I think people were looking for it.”
Almost a decade later, we miss those simpler times.
