Kanye West was celebrated as a hero during his first appearance on Kim Kardashian’s new reality series.
During last night’s episode of “The Kardashians” on Hulu, Kim shared the emotional moment when her estranged husband showed up with her alleged full sex tape.
Amid the couple’s divorce, Ye got on a red eye to L.A. and secured the footage from Ray J before flying back to New York to give it to Kim ahead of her “SNL” appearance. As her mother Kris Jenner and other family members looked on, Ye wheeled out a suitcase while an emotional Kim unzipped the bag to reveal a laptop and hard drive.
“He got me all of the sex tape back,” Kim said amid tears. “I know Kanye did this for me, but he also did this for my kids. I wanna shield them from as much as I can and if I have the power to or if Kanye has the power to, like that is the most important thing to me and I am so emotional because of it. It just means a lot to me.”

Kris also praised Ye for his heroic efforts. “Thank you for Kanye and for his unbelievable way he does things and the ability to get something done,” she said.
When Kris suggested that Ye had to pay a “big fat huge check” to get the tape back, he responded, “Oh, definitely not no check. We’re not getting extorted ever again.”
It turns out that the tape didn’t contain any explicit material. According to Kim, it featured footage of her and Ray J at a restaurant and a nightclub. “Nothing sexual, nothing weird. So now I can take a deep breath and not worry about this,” she said.
Back in September, Ray J’s former manager Wack 100 claimed he was in possession of a second Kim Kardashian and Ray J sex tape, which was longer and “more graphic and better than the first one,” and didn’t plan to release it to anyone but Kanye.
