She decided to befriend both Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis and Vivid CEO Steven Hirsch to profit off her adult video. Not only would Kim profit from each sale or download of the ‘leaked footage,’ but so would her ex-boyfriend.” The story also says “Kim Kardashian’s sudden desire to leak her own sex tape has caused some to wonder if her momager, Kris Jenner, was the brains behind it.
