This was the Big Fat Rumor of the Day a while ago, but for some reason it won't die. Tabloids are still claiming that Kris Jenner was instrumental in setting up the deal to sell her daughter Kim Kardashian's sex tape back in 2007. That tape basically put Kim, and ultimately the entire Kardashian family, on the map, which is something Kris has reportedly wanted since she was young. A source claims to have seen Kris' name on the contract with Vivid Entertainment which sold the tape, "Kim K Superstar". The source says, "Kris was totally involved in arranging the sale of Kim's tape. The video already existed, and Kris was there every step of the way as a middleman brought in to market it to an adult entertainment company." Kris allegedly received nearly $500,000 for her part in making the deal happen.
