Ray J thinks it’s a fabulous idea for Vivid Entertainment to sell the rights to “Kim K Superstar” … so long as he gets a big piece of the action.
Uundisclosed private party has offered to buy all rights to the XXX flick from Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch — which he told TMZ is worth at least $30 million. The buyer indicated he (though we’re guessing it’s a she) wanted to take the video off the market.
TMZ has obtained a letter from Ray J’s lawyer to Hirsch, in which the attorney makes it clear … Ray J has partial copyright ownership in the video and “any attempts to transfer the copyright outside of these parameters will result in filing a motion with the courts to seek an injunction of any sale until Ray J’s rights are protected.” Translation — he wants some serious cash.
The letter also says the video has been a pain in the ass for Ray J: “… my client rarely has a conversation with industry professionals where the Tape has not been mentioned or questioned … no amount of money can relieve him from this nightmare.” The lawyer didn’t mention how much money Ray J has already made from the video.
As for Kim’s financial interest in the tape … no one is talking, but the video has made untold millions, and Kim is a smart businesswoman. We’re just sayin’…
