Ray J seems to believe that he is responsible for “creating” Kim Kardashian.  The struggling, yet recognizable, singer has mentioned on several occasions that the reason Kim is now a household name is because he released a sex tape that they did together several years ago.

"And to think you really have me to thank for all this ;-)" a source with Radar Online said that he texted to Kim, who is about to get married.

The sex tape that the two did together was leaked in 2007 and Vivid Entertainment planned to release it to the public.  Then, Kim filed a $5 million lawsuit that was settled for an undisclosed amount.

It was shortly after the release of the tape that Kim became famous as a reality TV star.

Other young actresses have tried to follow Kim’s lead, including Montana Fishburne, the daughter of actor Lawrence Fishburne.  Montana released a series of sex tapes at the age of 19, but has yet to find the same mainstream success as Kim.
