Kanye West is reportedly hoping that his sex tape is "never released."
The hip hop musician was filmed fornicating with a woman who looked like Kim Kardashian shortly before he and the reality star began dating.
The video was acquired by an unnamed seller and is currently being pitched to adult film executives for high prices.
Kanye doesn't want the public to view the racy scene.
"Kanye's camp has been negotiating for the sex tape so he can buy back the copyright and it's never released," a source told Radar Online.
"The problem is that adult entertainment companies are offering huge amounts of money for rights to the tape, so Kanye and his team are working overdrive trying to work something out.
"If this were to hit the market it would be worth a fortune… there would definitely be a lot of people wanting to see this!
"Kanye was practically in tears when he heard the tape was being shopped."
