Kim Kardashian is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in the world of celebrity at the moment, but is her popularity because of her all-natural talent or a consequence of being born into the Kardashian clan?
The Kardashian relatives might not arrive from skilled origins but they do have an historical past of socialising with other celebs. Kim’s parents, Robert and mom Kris, had been friends with OJ Simpson & Nicole Brown Simpson. In fact, Kim’s Dad, Robert Kardashian, was the attorney for OJ Simpson during his infamous and widely publicised homicide trial after the death of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.
The divorce of Kim Kardashian's parents did not seem to have a substantial impact on Kim's life, and her mother Kris was later remarried to Bruce Jenner, who also stars in Keeping Up With The Kardashians. He is a well known face as a past Olympic gold medal winner, and now he takes photos for Playgirl magazines.
Kim’s Mother, Kris, manages her career, and is said to be responsible for the millions she has made. Kim’s reputation and celebrity status greatly improved after the Kim Kardashian Sex Tape with Reggie Bush was published.
After it’s release, the video clip quickly appeared on multilple web sites. Kim’s first reaction was to reject she was associated with the sex tape in any way. After a short while, the video clip was rapidly going around the internet and Kim was forced to confess her involvement.
Vivid Entertainment, the company who released the tape, became the focus of a lawsuit against them. Vivid ultimately made a deal with Kim which earned her a staggering five million dollars. It’s hard to say who had the last laugh, as Kim was basically paid for a self-promotional video, which raised her media profile greatly.
Shortly after the video pushed Kim further into the limelight, she featured as the cover page girl of Playboy magazine 2007 December release.
Another interesting fact about Kim Kardashian which helped raise her media profile is that she is a former friend of another Hollywood socialite, Paris Hilton. Paris and Kim were frequently seen together, partying at new nightclubs and hanging out. Eventually the pair’s friendship fizzled out, amid rumors in the media that Paris was envious of Kim.
Another important chapter in Kim’s life was her marriage to Kris Humphries. The basketball star’s union with the reality TV beauty lasted just 72 days and Kris believes that his entire relationship with Kim was staged, and will present proof of this at the former couple’s upcoming deposition in June. Kim fiercely denies that her wedding was a publicity stunt.
Kim is now dating another high profile celeb, rapper Kanye West, and has just splashed out $750,000 on a brand new lamborghini for his Birthday.
There is undoubtedly a lot more to come from Kim, whether it be more business ventures or yet more sex scandals. One thing is for sure, Kim’s certainly made her mark on the world of celebrity.
