According to an insider, Kanye's camp and the team shopping the sex tape got into a war shortly after RadarOnline.com exclusively broke the story - with the sellers wanting big bucks for it, and Kanye's team claiming the material was illegally obtained.
"Kanye's camp has been negotiating for the sex tape so he can buy back the copyright and it's never released," the source said.
"The problem is that adult entertainment companies are offering huge amounts of money for rights to the tape, so Kanye and his team are working overdrive trying to work something out."
"If this were to hit the market it would be worth a fortune…there would definitely be a lot of people wanting to see this!" a source said.
Insiders tell RadarOnline.com despite Kanye's relationship with a woman who launched a career off a sex tape, he is not pleased at the prospect of having his own on the market.
"Kanye was practically in tears when he heard the tape was being shopped," the source said.
