That, however, was not going to be the last time the two would make headlines as just a year after their split, a sex-tape of the couple, which was made in 2003, was released to the public.

Once the tape leaked, it resulted in Ray J and the Kardashian’s rise to stardom. Actually, it was Ray who sold it to Vivid Entertainment. Kim Kardashian sued him and the company. She later withdrew the charges and settled for a $5 million payment.

Ray J arguably made most of his money from the infamous sex. The Home Video earned him royalties, up to $90,000 every 3 months, which is about $360,000 annually. The video, which is now more than 10 years old, still brings in income. The royalties are managed by Vivid Entertainment. His royalty tends to receive a boost anytime Kim is trending on the news. Ray J believes that he and Kim are the pioneers of reality TV stating that they both have “been there from the start”.
