Monday, Kanye West made headlines after claiming he stopped an alleged second sex tape of Kim Kardashian and Ray J from being released.
In a sit-down with Jason Lee of Hollywood Unlocked, Ye said he flew to get the rumored second sex tape after Wack 100, Ray J’s former manager, teased he was in possession of part two of the infamous tape.
“I went and got the laptop from Ray J myself that night,” West told Lee. He also said in that interview Kardashian was relieved he retrieved the computer and broke down in tears when he brought it to her.
Tuesday, a Kardashian spokesperson told Page Six that the laptop did indeed exist; however, there was nothing sexually explicit about the unseen content.
“The computer and hard drive collected were supposed to contain the original video and any unseen footage. 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,” read the statement.
“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 [and] focus instead on the positive things she continues to do as a mother, entrepreneur and advocate for justice reform.”
A source also told Page Six that Kim was grateful for Kanye’s gesture in retrieving the laptop as the tape still is a source of embarrassment to the Skims founder.
“Kim was and still is truly grateful to Kanye for getting it back,” our insider shared. “The tape caused her a lot of pain and continues to haunt her to this day. Even though they are no longer together as a couple, they remain aligned with the same concerns about how this content that continues to be used against her will affect their four young kids in the future.”
