Kanye West paid big dollars to keep a sordid sex tape from ever seeing the light of day!
RadarOnline.com has uncovered the bombshell revelation — buried in secret court documents — that the 38-year-old "Gold Digger" hitmaker used part of his $130 million fortune to prevent the release of a raunchy sex tape co-starring a young Kim Kardashian lookalike.
"A Hollywood businessman who brokered other sex tapes with celebrities successfully negotiated the deal," a source told Radar.
"Kanye was very relieved! It would have been a disaster had it ever been released."
Radar was first to break the news of the existence of a 20-minute video, which showed West and an unidentified 18-year-old woman having intercourse.
According to a San Fernando sex industry insider, the video was shot sometime shortly before Kanye started dating wife Kim Kardashian.
The rapper was reportedly terrified of the footage getting out.
"The sex tape was shopped and there was a lot of interest, but behind-the-scenes, Kanye freaked out!" the insider added.
"He would have done anything to make sure it stayed private."
There have been rumors since that there was a second — forty-minute tape — in existence that also was yet to be exposed.
