The Kardashians have been quietly working overtime to stop the release of a scandalous book which details the families secrets, including the details behind 2007’s infamous Kim Kardashian sex tape, which thrust the family into superstardom.
Kevin Dickson, former family friend and confidant of the Kardashian clan, has penned a book titled “Post Famous” whose main character, Zia Zandrian, bears an undeniable resemblance to Kim Kardashian, who in the book, sells her sex tape for $5 million at the urging of her mother, Page Six reports.
Dickson is a former tabloid editor who once acted as a middle man between the wealthy family and In Touch magazine from the start of Kim Kardashian’s career. Their relationship soured during Kardashian’s divorce from NBA star Kris Humphries.
Insiders at the publishing house who were in talks with Dickson revealed that they were told that if they published the book, they would almost certainly face legal repercussions. “It wouldn’t be worth the hassle,” the insider told Page Six. However, that has not swayed Dickson who is currently in negotiations with two other publishing houses, and a studio who is interested in a TV adaptation of the book.
While Kim Kardashian is now a beauty and fashion mogul, she remains most notably known for her raunchy sex tape with with R&B singer Ray J, which was released in 2007 by Vivid Entertainment. Vivid’s founder Steven Hirsch has denied rumors that Kris Jenner was involved in its sale, calling the rumors “nonsense.” He did, however, confirm that Kim was paid for the release of the footage. He also did not dispute rumors her fee was in the $5 million ballpark.
A lawyer for Kim disputed the claims, calling the figure “greatly inflated.” Her mother, Kris Jenner, has also denied leaking Kardashian’s sex tape.
