Over a decade after the infamous Kim Kardashian sex tape was leaked, the reality star turned beauty mogul has addressed why she filmed the video. Speaking to her older sister Kourtney Kardashian, the mother-of-four said in a recent episode of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' that she gave the sex tape with her ex Ray J a green signal "because I was horny and felt like it."

But Kim, whose mother and momager Kris Jenner has always been touted as the mastermind behind her sex tape going viral, said that their family reality show has helped her "deal with" the subsequent scandal that emerged after the tape.

In a tell-all interview with the Los Angeles Times, coming just days before their show's last episode is set to air, Kim revealed her sentiments surrounding the sex tape and how "in a way, filming has helped us deal with things, instead of sweeping them under the rug."

Kim continued: "At the end of the day, I was always open and honest and wanted to share whatever I was going through. I wasn't gonna hold back." Currently estranged from her third husband Kanye West amid their divorce proceedings, Kim further told the publication: "I do think that, obviously, as producers, I'm sure they loved it. And loved [us] wanting to talk about the elephant in the room. And I probably wouldn't have, unless it was for the show. Sometimes I feel like, 'OK, I know I should probably deal and get this over with. Someone's gonna ask me, so I might as well just go ahead and do it.'"

Kim met Ray J when she was going through her 2003 divorce with second husband Damon Thomas. The reality star - who was then working as Paris Hilton's assistant - then dated Ray J until 2006. The tape was allegedly made in 2002 and obtained by the adult entertainment company Vivid for a million dollars, and released in 2007, for which Kim later sued them.

But their family show's executive producer Farnaz Farjam told the publication how Kim was "conflicted" about the tape's release. She added: "I remember Kim being conflicted about it, because she hated everything that was going on around that tape. We all talked about, 'We just have to own all the controversy around this family' and jumped in with both feet in the first episode. Then, the audience can get to know them at a much deeper level than what's been tabloid headlines."

Ray J too has addressed the sex tape, as he told his housemate while participating in UK's Celebrity Big Brother in 2017, "We're the same kind of player. She was the female me." He had been asked whether she broke his heart, and when his female housemates protested, Ray J had further explained: "She was a player, though. You don't really know what happened. Put it like this - we were both players. We were both cheaters, you know? You're looking at it from outside the house, walking in and seeing her do my clothes or something. You don't know what happened earlier, later... no clue. People think a lot of things."

Ray J had further said, "We loved each other. Every relationship I was in, I loved the girl. It's just the moral standards and values were off. I was loving and lying." Speaking about their relationship at the time, Ray J had said, "It's all good. I've seen her mom and her sisters at the basketball game and said,'Hi.'"
