Talking about his separation from Kim Kardashian again, Kanye said he personally “went and got the laptop from Ray J,” a claim connected to a recent rumor of an unreleased sex tape. According to Kanye, he did it amid Kim’s Saturday Night Live hosting gig. (Three weeks prior, Wack 100 publicized the fact he allegedly had a “part two” tape starring Kim and Ray J. However, West and Kardashian’s lawyer Marty Singer said at the time that the “claim that there is an unreleased sex tape is unequivocally false.”)

“How you gonna bring me to SNL and kiss the dude you dating right in front of me?” said Ye, referring to Pete Davidson. “Everybody’s like, ‘Oh, that’s cool.’ After I went and got the laptop from Ray J that night, right? I met this man at the airport, then got on the red eye, came back...delivered it to her at 8 a.m. in the morning. I gave it to her, and she cried when she saw it. You know why she cried when she saw that laptop? It represents how much she’s been used. … It represents how much people didn’t love her, they just saw her as a commodity.” 

He said Kim is “the most transacted-upon being other than Santa Claus or Jesus Christ,” although he stressed this in a more sympathetic way than in a critical fashion.

Since Ye’s comments to Lee, a rep for Kardashian told both Page Six and TMZ that the laptop did not contain a new sex tape involving Kim and Ray J, with sources adding that continued discussion surrounding sex tapes wouldn’t be good for Ye and Kim’s kids, “especially when it’s continued to be brought up in a way that’s thoughtless and intended to cause more pain.” Still, a source claimed that Kim was grateful for Ye’s gesture in getting the laptop.

“After review, there was nothing sexual unseen, only footage on the plane on the way to Mexico and footage at a club and restaurant on the same trip,” the rep said. “Kim remains firm in her belief that there is no new second tape that exists.”
