Kim Kardashian (born 21.10.1980) is an American celebrity, known primarily for her public social appearances, sex-tape scandal and as a reality television star.
Net worth: Kim Kardashian has a net worth of $51 million, according to Forbes in 2017.
Childhood: Kim was born in Los Angeles, California, to Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner (nee Houghton). Robert Kardashian was a top lawyer, best known for defending O.J. Simpson when Simpson was charged with the double murder of his wife and her friend. Robert died on 30.9.2003.
Kim's mother had divorced Robert in 1989 and married Bruce Jenner, a former Olympian. Kim also has two sisters, Kourtney and Khloe, as well as a brother, Robert. In addition to this, she has two stepbrothers; Burton and Brandon Jenner, a step-sister (reality TV star Brody Jenner) and two half-sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Kim attended an all-girl's Catholic school in Los Angeles and helped out at her father's music marketing firm, Movie Tunes.
Career: Having been lifelong friends with the heiress Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian was introduced to the socialite scene in the early 2000's. Kardashian herself first encountered a degree of notoriety when a tape of her having sex with the rapper Ray J became available.
Far from damaging her prospects, Kardashian built a life in the spotlight around the incident. She began with a reality TV series, entitled Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which featured her and her family and aired on the E! channel in the US.
She went on to act in 'Beyond the Break' and Disaster Movie though never quite forged an acting career for herself. She has had more success presenting TV shows such as Wrestlemania XXIV and serving as a judge on America's Next Top Model. She was also selected as a contestant on the popular Dancing with the Stars.
Kim Kardashian owns a clothing boutique with her sister, entitled D-A-S-H, along with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe. She has also launched a number of beauty products, such as the charitable LipFusion lipgloss and the Kardashian Glamour Tan.
Deciding to step behind the camera for a change, Kim Kardashian produced the reality show The Spin Crowd, which focuses on her friend's PR company, Command PR.
She also turned her hand to music and the video for her track 'Jam (Turn It Up)' was directed by Hype Williams, featuring a cameo from Kanye West.
In 2014, Kardashian posed nude in a now infamous portrait for the cover of Paper magazine. She was said to 'Break the internet'. That year she also launched her hit mobile app game 'Kim Kardashian: Hollywood'.
In 2015, she released her first book; a collection of selfies called 'Selfish'. She also unveiled her very own IOS emoji called Kimoji.
Personal Life: Kim Kardashian married the music producer Damon Thomas in 2000. Their relationship was short-lived and the pair divorced in 2004. She went on to date a number of high-profile men, including the model Gabriel Aubry, Miami Dolphins player Reggie Bush and the Dallas Cowboys player Miles Austin.
In October 2010, she started dating Kris Humphries, a basketball player for the New Jersey Nets. They were engaged in May 2011 and married in August 2011. The marriage preparations and ceremony were subjects of a TV show that aired on E! in October 2011. After just 72 days of marriage, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce. Humphries has accused Kim Kardashian of fraud and has requested that a judge issue an annulment rather than the requested divorce.
Kim married Kanye West in Florence, Italy in 2014. The two have two children together; daughter North West born on June 15th 2013 and son Saint West born on December 5th 2015.
In 2016, Kim was robbed at gunpoint at her apartment in France during Paris Fashion Week. They allegedly tied her up and stole $10 million worth of jewellery. Production of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' was temporarily halted, and after the incident the reality star remained remarkably quiet on social media.
West and his wife Kim Kardashian attended the opening night of 'The Cher Show' on Broadway this week.
Kanye West has apologised for a “lack of etiquette” after he was caught staring at his phone during the opening night of a Broadway musical about Cher.
The 41 year old rapper attended the premiere of ‘The Cher Show’ in New York City on Tuesday night (December 4th) with his wife Kim Kardashian – a star-studded event in which the legendary pop star Cher herself appeared on stage. However, one of the production’s cast called out West for apparently being engrossed in his phone during the show.
Jarrod Spector, who plays Sonny Bono, acknowledged Kanye’s attendance but upbraided him for his inattentive behaviour.

Pascal Duvier and his company, Protect Security, are being sued for over $6 million.
On the second anniversary of Kim Kardashian’s terrifying experience at the hands of armed robbers who raided her Paris apartment for millions of dollars of jewellery, the reality star’s insurance company is now suing her former bodyguard for failing to protect her.
TMZ reported on Wednesday night (October 3rd), the Kardashian/Jenner family’s former bodyguard Pascal Duvier, along with his protection company Protect Security, is being sued by AIG (American International Group).

Kim told Ashley Graham that her husband once paid her $1 million not to promote a rival brand to his Yeezy fashion range.
The reality star and entrepreneur, 37, spilled the beans in an episode of Ashley Graham’s new podcast Pretty Big Deal this week, telling the host that Kanye once cut her a cheque for a million bucks in return for her turning down a lucrative offer from a rival fashion brand to promote it.
“He's like the cutest,” Kim said. “A brand offered me a million dollars to do a post on some of their clothing and they typically - I don't want to say who the brand is - but they typically knock off Yeezy.”

Kim Kardashian wore her hair in braids to the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards last weekend, and was accused of cultural appropriation.
Kim Kardashian has defended herself from criticism over her recent decision to wear her hair in braids, telling fans she’s “not tone deaf” and she chose the hairstyle because her daughter North had asked her.
The 37 year old mother of three wore Fulani braids at the MTV Movie and TV Awards last Saturday (June 16th), a style that can be traced back to the Fulani ethnic group in West Africa, but many people on social media called her out for cultural appropriation.
“You've literally become the face of cultural appropriation in America,” one critical follower wrote, while another exasperated commenter said: “The most annoying part is that at this point she knows what she’s doing, she knows what cultural appropriation is and that it upsets people yet she still chooses to do it because she knows it doesn’t upset the right ppl or cost her $$.”
