It's an interesting fact that Kim Kardashian was once the lesser known BFF of Paris Hilton in the mid naughties. It's another interesting fact that Paris's own sex tape ('One Night in Paris') with ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon hardly hurt her career. In fact, some say it put the Hilton heiress firmly in the spotlight and cemented her position as an IT girl in Hollywood.

Now allegations have surfaced that Kris Jenner may in fact have given daughter Kim Kardashian the idea for her 2007 sex tape -- with then-boyfriend Ray J -- that bumped Paris Hilton to the second rung of Hollywood royalty and pushed Kim to the first. Well, this according to and reported text messages sent from Kris Humphries' mobile phone.

A few things note regarding these reports circulating.

Firstly, Kris Humphries is currently in divorce proceedings with Kim Kardashian; the pair remained married for only 72 days and many claimed the marriage was a sham.

Secondly, the actual accuser, Myla Sinanaj, is an ex-girlfriend of Kris Humphries who says she has damning evidence in text message form. Damning for whom in the divorce proceedings is the interesting part.

Kris is seeking $7 million in the divorce settlement, claiming he was left devastated after Kim filed the divorce papers. Despite being 'devastated', he started a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship with Myla just two months after the divorce papers were filed, a fact he and his team apparently tried to hide lest it hurt his chance at scoring the $7 million pay day.

Aside from the sex tape allegations, Kris also allegedly told Myla she was the love of his life and that he wanted to get the divorce over and done with as quickly as possible so they could start their life together.

Kim's legal team subpoenaed Myla in the divorce proceedings, asking for the text messages to be surrendered as part of evidence in their case against Kris' claims.

In a case of he said/she said, sources close to Kim, who is now dating rapper Kanye West, say that Kim never wanted to discuss the sex tape with Kris as she didn't want to be judged by it.

We're pretty sure this won't be the last word.
