AceShowbiz - Bethenny Frankel has weighed in on Ray J and Kim Kardashian's sex tape drama. "The Real Housewives of New York City" alum has slammed the Kardashians after the R&B crooner claimed that Kim and Kris Jenner were behind the X-rated footage.
On Sunday, the 51-year-old former Bravolebrity turned to Instagram Story to share her two cents on the matter. In the since-deleted post, she stated that it's "common knowledge" the Kardashians "were involved in that tape" and made "billions" from it while Ray J "has not been properly compensated."
"I bet that Ray J just hasn't been properly compensated and he's been embarrassed in front of his family, and they keep exploiting it and capitalizing on it," Bethenny, who recently called out the Kardashians for their "irresponsible" Photoshopping habits, said. "Ray J should get 10% commission for lightening the flame that created America's first family. Royal family - Kardashians."
Bethenny further slammed the Kardashians as saying, "I am being dead serious... I know people in common with the Kardashians and they fully were involved in that tape." The SkinnyGirl entrepreneur then elaborated, "It's obviously second hand, but I heard from people close to them Kris was involved in the tape with Kim and... they have made billions and billions of dollars off this tape. Don't we know that already? I'm just confused what we're confused about. Is the truth relevant? It doesn't seem like it ever is."
Bethenny's social media rant arrived shortly after Ray J called out Kris for denying her involvement in the sex tape leak during her appearance on "The Late Late Show with James Corden". In a 44-minute Instagram post, the "One Wish" singer claimed Kris never negotiated for the tape's distribution with Vivid Entertainment, which released the tape. However, he claimed that there were three different sex tapes, two were filmed in Cabo and one in Santa Barbara. He added that the momager chose the one in which her daughter looked the best.
The sex tape contract, meanwhile, showed both exes receiving $400,000 each upfront and 12.5% of the profits for each of them. There was also Kim's handwriting in which she described the three tapes.
In addition to blasting Kris and Kim, Ray J dragged CBS for airing the segment. Threatening to sue "The Late Late Show", he raged, "THIS IS THE GUY THEY HAD GIVE KRIS JANKY THE LIE DETECTOR TEST - THE NETWORK SHOULD BE ASHAMED AND YOU SHOULD TOO @j_corden - ALL YALL GETTING SUED FOR PLAYING WITH THE TRUTH! - Click the link in my bio to see how fraud this guy is!! For real?? YOU ALL ARE IN TROUBLE!!"
"THE KARTRASHIANS F**KED YOU TOO!! Bc YOU REALLY THOUGHT THEY WERE TELLING THE TRUTH!! - BUT all OF IT IS A S**T SHOW!! - WATCH ME EXPOSE THEM - SLOWLY AND FAST!! Nothing can stop the RAIN KIM!! NO NO NO KIM!! NO NO NO KIM!! - ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!" the brother of Brandy Norwood further argued. "WAIT TILL THEY SEE YOUR HANDWRITING AND FINGERPRINTS ON MY CANTRACT!! and WAIT UNTIL THEY SEE YOUR CONTRACT YOU SIGNED THE SAME DAY AS ME!!"
