Kanye West Already Spoke On The Retrieval The Sex Tape Footage
The alleged event happened last year, sometime before Kardashian appeared on and hosted “Saturday Night Live.” She was also on the show with her now-boyfriend, Pete Davidson.
While Kim revealed the news of the footage on her reality show, Kanye talked about it earlier in an interview with Hollywood Unlocked. He noted that he had retrieved the remaining part of the tape for Kardashian. Fans believed that he made the confession because he didn’t like her new relationship with Davidson.
He confirmed this during the interview as he said, “How you gonna bring me to ‘SNL’ and kiss the dude you dating right in front of me?” He continued, “And everybody’s like, ‘Oh, that’s, that’s cool.’ After I went [and] got the laptop from Ray J myself that night, right?”

After going through the clip, Kardashian confirmed that it contained nothing explicit or sexual. “It was just footage of us at a restaurant, at a nightclub [and there was] nothing sexual. Nothing weird,” the star said.
She also mentioned how relieved she was that the drama was finally over. “So now I can take a deep breath and not worry about this right before SNL, right before the bar, and right before everything,” she said.
Earlier in September 2021, Kardashian’s lawyer, Marty Singer, told fans that the rumors of an unreleased sex tape were fake. In an interview with Us Weekly, the attorney said “It is unfortunate that people make these statements to try and get their 15 minutes of fame.”
West also alleged that he decided to meet with Ray J to retrieve the extra footage as soon as the rumors made headlines.

During the episode, Kardashian opened up a suitcase in front of Kris Jenner and her sister, Khloé Kardashian in her room. She said, “I want to show you guys what [West] got me,” then continued, “He got me all of the sex tape back. And he got the computer it was on and the hard drive. He met with Ray J at the airport, and he got it all back for me.”
