The letter goes on to add, “The party we represent does not intend to distribute or broadcast the ‘tape,’ but hopes to completely remove it from the market.”
Hirsch recently told The Hollywood Reporter that the starlet’s August 20 nuptials created a massive spike in traffic to Vivid’s 2007 Kardashian adult tape. The KimKSuperstar website received roughly two million hits during the wedding weekend Aug. 19-21, which is a significant rise from its average of 300,000.

Hirsch said in a statement to THR, “The power of Kim Kardashian’s name continues to amaze us. The Kim/Ray J sex tape has been a best seller for us since it was introduced in 2007 and there’s no question that the media focus on her wedding last weekend increased traffic to kimksuperstar.com.”
Kardashian’s wedding to NBA Player Kris Humphries is estimated to have cost $6 million, which the star offset by securing large discounts through venders who gave items and services in exchange for publicity on the her Twitter account and TV show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
