Keeping Up With The Kardashians star looks glum after it emerges her ex could block sex tape sale
With her infamous sex tape hitting the headlines again you would be forgiven for thinking newlywed Kim Kardashian would be feeling a tad red-faced.
And the reality TV star was keeping her head down as she left her hotel in the Gramercy Park area of New York yesterday covered in an all-black outfit.
The 30-year-old wore an unflattering combo of a dress covered by a sheer skirt, topped off with a sleeveless jacket and platform shoes.

It has emerged her former boyfriend and 'co-star' RnB singer Ray J could block the 'mystery buyer' who is trying to pull the video that shot her to fame from the market
However he also does not seem to mind if the world continues to see the sex tape that made his ex famous.

The letter reads: 'Any attempts to transfer the copyright outside of these parameters will result in filing a motion with the courts to seen an injunction of any sale until Ray J's rights are protected.'

Now a non-paid-for porn website has come forward and wants to buy the rights to the video from Hirsch - offering $5m - to put it online for for free.
A spokesman for the named website told TMZ it 'respectfully disagrees with Hirsch's more inflated value of the tape.
It has been said that Ray J has already financially benefited from prior sales of the tape, which has reportedly made millions, although his lawyer's letter says it's caused him nothing but pain.
'My client rarely has a conversation with industry professionals where the Tape has not been mentioned or questioned,' he wrote.
He added: 'No amount of money can relieve him from this nightmare.'
An undisclosed private party recently offered to buy all the rights to the 2007 amateur XXX video.
The buyer has indicated that he or she wants to take said video off the market.
While Ray J and Kim, 30, still have ongoing drama, it's actually the reality star's new husband that had a recent run-in with her ex.
Kris Humphries, 26, and Ray J were on the same flight from Los Angeles to New Orleans last Sunday.
Humphries eventual response: 'Oh yeah, yeah, I’m sorry I know who you are.'
