If Nick Lachey wants Kim Kardashian to own up to her paparazzi and fame obsessed ways and admit that she wouldn’t be famous without his help, he’ll have to step in line behind Kris Humphries, Reggie Bush and of course Ray-J – who is reminding us all of that with his latest song “Hit it First.”
According to Nick Lachey, Kim tipped off the paparazzi to their movie date back in 2006 in order to sky rocket herself to fame and fortune.
When asked whether tabloid pictures of Nick and Kim on one of their early dates marked the start of Kim’s career, the 39-year-old singer said: ‘That’s one way to interpret it. Let’s just say this: We went to a movie. No one followed us there. Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside.’
Nick went on to suggest that Kim had tipped off the paparazzi about the pair’s movie date on May 24, 2006.
‘There are certain ways to play this game, and some people play it well,’ he said in the May 2013 issue of Details.
‘She also had some help from that sex tape,’ the interviewer added, referring to Kim’s infamous video with rapper Ray J.
‘Yeah, well that was already in the can,’ said Nick.
Even Kimmy K herself claimed that it was the movie date night that turned her into the famous for who knows what socialite she is today:
‘It started when I went out on a date with Nick Lachey,’ Kim wrote in the 2010 book, Kardashian Konfidential. ‘Of course the paparazzi took pictures, because people were curious about who he was with.’
So the next night I was out with Paris Hilton,’ she continued. ‘We were in her car and the paparazzi started taking pictures. Usually they would shout, “Paris! Paris! Paris!”
‘[But] they started yelling “Kim! Kim! Kim!” I wanted to hide, and Paris and I just looked at each other and laughed.’
‘She said, “Whatever you do, just smile.” I thought, this is so weird, I don’t know what’s going on. It was surreal.’
Nick and Kim can say whatever they want but we all know that Kim is pretty much a glamorized, accidental porn star and most of the credit for her fame should go right to Brandy’s brother.
Her current boyfriend, Kanye West, said it himself during his verse on the song “Clique” where he rapped “My girl a superstar all from a home movie.”
Well in that case – Cue that corny but oh so true Ray J song!
