*Ray J continues to seek credit for the global interest in Kim Kardashian.

According to RadarOnline.com, the singer, whose sex tape with Kim K first made the celebrity a household name, texted her before her wedding on Saturday with the message:  “And to think you really have me to thank for all this ;-).”

As previously reported, Ray J. told a reporter earlier this year that he had “created” Kim Kardashian.

Their sex tape first leaked in February 2007, and Vivid Entertainment jumped in with plans to professionally release it. Kim filed a $5 million lawsuit against the porn company. The parties settled for an undisclosed amount.

Kim’s big break as a reality star happened eight months later when “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” premiered on E!
