Sex tape in the introduction?[edit]

Does anyone else feel like this line should be moved somewhere else? "received wider notice after a 2003 sex tape with her former boyfriend Ray J was leaked in 2007." I am not saying that it shouldn't be on her article, but in the introduction? There are children out there glorifying her, probably doing school projects on her and what not, and I just feel that it's a little out there. I mean we all know Kim is an attention seeker, but I feel that line is a very overblown for an introduction, wouldn't you agree? Why not place it in the career or personal life section?

PaulG524, the sex tape did significantly contribute to her fame, and there are reliable sources that note this. It's also a matter covered lower in the article (in the first section of the article). So per WP:Lead, mention of it should be in the lead. We don't write our introductions with children in mind. And there are many Wikipedia articles that are not suitable for children.

This 2017 "The Kardashian Decade: How a Sex Tape Led to a Billion-Dollar Brand" source, from The Hollywood Reporter, is one reliable source that discusses the sex tape aspect. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 21:05, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your response. I am aware that there are many articles not suitible for children. I am also aware that many children look up to her and sadly see her as an influence. I am not saying that it shouldn't be included, but there are plenty of celebrities out there who got famous off of sex tapes and it is not included in their introductions. PaulG524 (talk) 21:10, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

PaulG524, if a celebrity became famous via a sex tape, it should be mentioned in the lead. Not all of our Wikipedia articles have a proper or good lead. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 22:46, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 26 June 2018[edit]

Please delete mention of Jonathan Jaxson because he was never Kim's publicist. It's a fabricated story.

"A man professing to be her former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, also claimed that her short-lived marriage was indeed staged and a ploy to generate money. Kardashian filed suit against Jaxson, saying his claims were untrue, and subsequently settled the case which included an apology from Jaxson.[120]" JmarchettiFP (talk) 18:38, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: That's exactly the point - it was a fabricated story, and generated publicity and a lawsuit as a result. Nobody's trying to say he was actually her publicist here, and I don't see any reason to remove it. ‑‑ElHef (Meep?) 01:07, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
