Although the 24-year-old beauty has publicly struggled to stop the release of her explicit video, she reportedly cuts a deal with Vivid for the sex tape sales.
Kendra Wilkinson has reportedly inked a deal with porn company Vivid Entertainment which is about to release her sex tape "Kendra Exposed". According to Radar Online, the 24-year-old beauty will receive a $680,000 check from a pre-sales of the X-rated video this week and will also be receiving up to 50 percent of the sex tape profits.
The site further reported that Kendra's upfront payment has been kept secret. Although the "Shoot Out of Luck" actress has publicly struggled to block the distribution, she is said secretly signing on the deal. In 2008, she allegedly shopped the sex tape around, hired a lawyer and formed Home Run Productions, LLC for the potential sale.
"Greed got in the way of the deal," a source told the site on why the sex tape wasn't sold at the time. "Too many people were involved... the negotiations went sour and it was pulled."
However, two years later, Vivid was aware that they could make a bank through the explicit video after Kendra's former high-school lover Justin Frye, who is featured in the content, approached them. Justin then made the deal and Kendra secretly did too.
Justin himself has pocketed a reported $100,000 for selling the sex tape and new sources close to him moreover revealed that the 28-year-old man is also getting a percentage of sales although it is a much smaller percentage than Kendra's.
Additionally, Radar Online disclosed that Justin sold the home videos that numbered as many as 20 tapes and tens of hours of content. In one clip, Kendra is seen having an intimate moment with a woman named Taryn.
