Kim Kardashian may have done her naked and oiled-up Paper magazine photo shoot for free, but her ex-boyfriend Ray J is raking in the cash since the images hit the web.

You'll never guess how much Kim Kardashian was paid for her naked cover

It turns out since Kardashian decided to go nude in the name of fashion, there's been a new interest in her old sex tape titled Kim K: Superstar, which she and her old flame Ray J, whose real name is William Ray Norwood Jr., taped back in 2003.

The steamy tape was leaked in 2007 and Ray J has been earning cash off it ever since. However, thanks to the renewed interest in Kardashian's booty, it means that the "I Hit It First" singer is getting a major payday, because according to TMZ, sales of the tape have since increased exponentially. And Ray J has raked in a whopping $50,000 from last week alone.

Before the dramatic spike in sales, it was believed that the singer had been making $90,000 every three months from the tape, thanks to his deal with Vivid Entertainment (according to Business Insider, Kardashian reportedly settled in 2007 for $5 million and gave the company the rights to distribute).

Now Kardashian's new butt pics have attracted so much attention that according to the president of Vivid Entertainment, Steve Hirsh, it's now the biggest-selling celebrity sex tape of all time, surpassing Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s 1995 home video, which held the title until last week.
