The Kardashians have had to deal with plenty of made-up drama over the course of their careers as reality stars, but getting shaken down over something that doesn’t exist is definitely a first for the famous family.
Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner is currently at the center of an extortion plot over a sex tape she swears she never made, and the case has gotten so hot that it’s now drawing police attention.
According to TMZ, law enforcement officials say that Kris has been receiving hundreds of threatening phone calls, texts, and voicemails every day from someone who says that they have video evidence of her naked romp, and they’ll release it to TMZ if she doesn’t pony up plenty of cash. The website, for what it’s worth, claims they would decline to show the tape anyway.
While it’s unclear who the extortionist — or Kris’ alleged sex tape partner — is, one thing is for sure: he’s not exactly a pro at getting people to pay him for his schemes. During the phone calls in question, the criminal mastermind behind the extortion plot alternated between saying it was either Kris or her daughter, Khloe Kardashian, on the tape — not exactly inspiring confidence in any potential buyers.
For what it’s worth, however, if there is a sex tape with Kris somewhere out there in the ether, it won’t be a hard sell — Vivid founder and chairman Steve Hirsch says he’ll shell out plenty of cash for distribution rights.
Do you believe that there’s a secret sex tape of Kris out there somewhere?
