He tweeted on Wednesday explaining, “This needs to stop. I also have kids.”
Ray has two children with his estranged wife Princess Love. Their daughter Melody is 3 while their son Epik is 2.
Ray decided to speak after the 44-year-old rapper told Jason Lee of Hollywood Unlocked that he picked up a laptop from him containing their alleged “second sex tape”.
Ye said in the interview, “I went and got the laptop from Ray J myself that night. I met this man at the airport, then got on a red-eye, came back [and] delivered it to her at 8 a.m. in the morning.”
He added that Kim felt relieved and cried. Ye said, “She cried when she saw it. You know why she cried when she seen it on the laptop? 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.”
Kim’s rep acknowledged that were was a laptop but there wasn’t sexually explicit content. The rep said in a statement, “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.”
“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.”
An insider told Page Six that the 41-year-old reality star was “very emotional” when Ye returned with the laptop and hard drive. The insider said, “Kim was and still is truly grateful to Kanye for getting it back. The [original 2007 sex] 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.”- Advertisement -
