If seeing Kim Kardashian naked is one of your more preferred pastimes, Playboy has a treat for you. Playboy Cyber Club has unveiled 25 new pictures of Kim Kardashian online, according to Radar Online. Given the ingenuity of hackers and the strange ability for naked pictures of celebrities to be “leaked,” it won’t be long before the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star’s latest photos are all over the Internet. But while the rest of the world waits, members of the Playboy Cyber Club have access to the Playboy pictures.
The new Playboy pictures aren’t exactly “new.” The pictures are outtakes from when Kim Kardashian posed for Playboy magazine in 2007. The issue was one of their biggest-selling editions ever.
Kardashian noted in a recent interview that she had been uncomfortable during the Playboy photo shoot, but has since apologized to Hugh Hefner and Playboy, saying that her words were misconstrued. The 29-year-old model/designer/reality show celebrity has come a long way, going from the nearly unknown stepdaughter of Bruce Jenner and socialite/BFF to Paris Hilton to an international celebrity sensation in a decade. And she owes much of that fame to images of her appearing naked (or in varying degrees of undress) on the Internet just three short years ago.
Although she had scored as a minor entourage celebrity via palling around with Hilton, Kim Kardashian truly became an overnight sensation in 2007. A sex tape of her and then-boyfriend, R&B singer Ray J, was “leaked” to the Internet. Kardashian sued Vivid Entertainment but soon dropped the lawsuit for a reported settlement of $5 million. The sex tape, which she recently told Allure magazine was “not [her] most proud moment,” would go on to become Vivid’s biggest-selling sex tape until a sex tape of Playboy‘s own Kendra Wilkinson was released in May.
Speculation ran rampant that the sex tape was “leaked” purposely as advance PR for the new E! Network series, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” which premiered in October 2007. Although Kim insisted that the sex tape video was released originally without her permission, her appearance in Playboy magazine in December that same year only increased the speculation that it was all done in order to draw attention to the new show.
Currently, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” is in its fifth season, and Kim no longer needs to get naked to promote anything. She has become a tabloid and Internet darling, and pictures of the voluptuous reality star can be found just about anywhere one cares to look, from grocery store checkout to hundreds (if not thousands) of Internet websites. Only a few of those pictures show the popular 29-year-old naked.
But those few have increased by 25.
