LOS ANGELES - (February 7, 2007) -- Vivid Entertainment, the world's leading adult film studio, says it has paid $1-million to acquire rights to a video tape featuring the sexual exploits of raven-haired Hollywood socialite Kim Kardashian and her then boyfriend, hip hop star Ray J.

The company said the DVD titled "Kim Kardashian Superstar" will be released on Wednesday, February 21st and will be in stores by the following Wednesday, February 28th. It will also be available online on February 28th at www.vivid.com or www.kimksuperstar.com and will include additional footage not on the DVD.

Vivid co-chairman Steven Hirsch said the company obtained the video from a third party but did not identify the person or entity. "We are comfortable that we have the legal right to distribute this video, despite what others may say," says Mr. Hirsch.

"I've seen the video and it's really great," says Mr. Hirsch. "It has over 30-minutes of explicit sex that fans of erotica will find very appealing featuring two young and glamorous high profile celebrities. Apparently, the video was shot by Ray J about three years ago when he and Kim were in a relationship. The production is crystal clear and viewers will definitely get their money's worth. If either Kim or Ray J would like to discuss the video with us we would be happy to do so," he added.

The beautiful and curvaceous Ms. Kardashian, 26, was reported to have dated Ray J for about three years. She is a fashion retailer who co-owns the popular store "Dash" in Calabasas with her two sisters Kourtney and Khloe. She is the daughter of the late attorney Robert Kardashian, who defended O.J. Simpson in his murder trial. Her stepfather is 1976 Olympic decathlon gold medalist Bruce Jenner. Often covered by the entertainment and gossip press, Ms. Kardashian frequently attends Hollywood events with her celebrity pals, including best friend, Paris Hilton. Ms. Hilton made headlines a couple of years ago with her own sex tape.

Ray J, 26, began his career as a child actor playing the role of Dorian Long on "Moesha," the popular UPN-TV series. Over the years his TV credits have included hosting of the BET shows "106 & Park" and "BET Countdown" plus playing the role of D-Mack on the UPN-TV show "One On One." At age 14 he added singing to his talents. He is a best-selling independent hip-hop artist and his most recent hit is "One Wish" with the Knockout Entertainment label. In addition to Ms. Kardashian, his girlfriends have included Lil' Kim and Whitney Houston.
