Some newly subpoenaed phone records in the Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries divorce case have revealed a disturbing assertion: that not only was Kim Kardashian’s sex tape “leaked” on purpose (duh), but that the entire thing was engineered by momager Kris Jenner, who supposedly even made Kim and Ray J re-shoot it because she didn’t think Kim looked pretty enough the first time around. And who, might I repeat, is her mother. Oh dear.

The strange thing about this tidbit is that it comes not as part of Humphries’ PR strategy to make Kim look bad, but from phone records Kim herself subpoenaed as part of their divorce proceedings. His case, you see, is predicated on the fact that Kim tricked him into thinking their marriage was real, causing him much emotional distress when he finally found out what most of America knew already. Kim subpoenaed texts between Kris and his ex-girlfriend Myla Sinanaj as a way to prove that Kris was not, in fact, fully invested in their marriage, but constantly texting his ex and talking crap about Kim behind her back. Unfortunately for Kim, though, some of the “crap” Kris talked about her actually sounds pretty believable.

Is it really worth keeping a few extra millions (on which Kim’s in no danger of running low) if it leaves everyone thinking your own mother plotted your Vivid Celeb debut? Which would be pretty fucked up, even for Kris Jenner, no? Short answer: yes, because money and attention are Kim’s two favorite things, and this will get her a whole bunch of both of them. I can’t wait to see what else comes out as Kim and her simian ex each try for a Pyrrhic victory over the other.
