Though Ray J remains in the public eye doing various projects like his stint on Love and Hip-Hop (which reportedly might be coming to an end soon), he could choose to never work again and watch the money still roll in thanks to his X-rated video with former love Kim Kardashian. Ray J, little brother to singer Brandy, musician, and reality TV connoisseur made the infamous tape with the little-known Kim K in 2003 and while Kim has gone on the record regretting the tape, they both benefited from it in some way or another.
Per year, Ray J reportedly makes over $100,000 from royalties from one of the most watched celebrity sex tapes to ever exist. This number was revealed when Ray J cheekily offered to donate 4 months of his sex tape royalties– $47,000- as a wedding present to Kim and new love Kanye West.
But get this- as interest peaks in Kim and consequently her sex tape, Ray J makes even more money than average. When she tried to “break the internet” with her naked photos in Paper Magazine in late 2014, Ray J earned $50,000 during that week alone.
If we were him, we wouldn’t really care about continuing Love & Hip Hop either…
