Kim Kardashian has shot down ex-husband Kanye West's claim he prevented a second, unseen sex tape of her and ex-boyfriend Ray J from leaking by retrieveing the footage for her.
In his bombshell interview with Hollywood Unlocked, West suggested he was particularly hurt by Kardashian's flaunting of her new relationship with Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson because of the lengths he had gone to in order to return the tapes.
"How you gonna bring me to SNL and kiss the dude you're dating right in front of me? And everybody's like, 'Oh that's cool,'" West said.
"After I went and got the laptop from Ray J myself that night, right, and then got on a red-eye. I met this man at the airport, and got on a red-eye, came back and delivered it to her at 8am in the morning."
The rapper insisted Kardashian "cried" when she saw the video.
"You know why she cried when she seen it on the laptop [sic]? Because it represents how much she's been used. It represents how much people didn't love her and they just saw her as a commodity," he said.
"This is the most transacted upon human being other than like Santa Claus or Jesus Christ. She's the most famous person in the world."
A representative for Kardashian disputed West's version of events, telling Entertainment Tonight that there was in fact no unseen sexual footage recovered.
"After review, there was nothing sexual unseen, only footage on the plane on the way to Mexico and footage at a club and restaurant on the same trip," the spokesperson said.
"Kim remains firm in her belief that there is no new second tape that exists. After 20 years, she truly wishes to move on from this chapter with focus instead on the positive things she continues to do as a mother, entrepreneur and advocate for justice reform."
A now-infamous sex tape of Kardashian and Ray J was made public in 2007, the same year that her reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians debuted. The show would go on to make Kardashian a household name, with the star often poking fun at her unconventional introduction to show business.
In 2018, Kardashian expressed her gratitude to West for not allowing the stigma of her past to get in the way of their romance.
"I've known him forever. He's put himself up against the world for me when everyone told him, 'You cannot date a girl with a sex tape. You cannot date a reality show girl. This is going to ruin your career.' Everyone told him that," she told CNN's Van Jones.
