Kim Kardashian has been a top tabloid girl for a long time, she's Paris Hilton's best friend and a very wealthy socialite. But in 2006/2007, Kim Kardashian reached a new level of paparazzi attention.

Rumors of a graphic sex tape showing Kim Kardashian and her then-boyfriend Ray J performing various sexual acts surfaced on the Internet, and where later confirmed. Kim K tried to stop distribution with legal action, but once copies and clips hit the Internet, everything spiraled out of control.

Despite impending lawsuits, adult retailers started offering the "Kim Kardashian Sex Tape" for pre-order in February 2007.

On April 30, 2007, Kim Kardashian settled in court with Vivid Entertainment, an adult video distributor, who will pay $1 million to an unidentified source for the video and $5 million to Kim Kardashian. Vivid plans to stop sale and distribution of the sex tape by the end of May 2007.

This sex tape news got Kardashian into the news in entertainment magazines, gossip websites, and the blogosphere. Take a look at the trend chart, showing the number of Google searches for her name. It ramped up in 2006 and spiked around the time of her sex tape scandal:

Now that the sex tape scandal is coming to a conclusion, we're all wondering what Kim K will do with her new-found popularity. Perhaps a repeat performance with Ray-J?

Kim Kardashian can look so great in one photo and so damn huge (butt) in another.

The newest playboy pics are ok, but she's smoking hot in that series of sex videos that were leaked awhile ago.

If you haven't yet seen them do yourself a favor and check them out at that free nude celebrities website

Much, much hotter than that stick Paris.
