Kim Kardashian's sex tape soon will be History

Kim Kardashian -- who in February sued adult video distributor Vivid Entertainment for releasing a homemade video of her having sex with ex-boyfriend, singer Ray J, without her consent -- will be paid by Vivid a settlement totaling close to $5 million. Sources also say that Vivid has agreed to cease distribution of the video by the end of May (but a Vivid source claims the settlement payment is "closer to $3 million" and that "no decision has been made as to whether or not distribution will stop").

"Kim is relieved that she can now move on from this embarrassing chapter in her life," says a Kardashian pal. Steven Hirsch, co-chairman of Vivid Entertainment, released a statement saying, "We are pleased that Kim has dropped her legal action against us. We met with her several times and finally reached a financial arrangement that we both feel is fair." Hirsch continued, "We’ve always known we had the legal right to distribute this video which became an instant best-seller and we’ve always [wanted] to work something out with Kim so she could share in the profits."
