Who is Kim Kardashian?
Kimberly Noel Kardashian is a well-known name in the United States of America for her involvement in business, modeling, and public appearances. Her initial exposure to the media came from her friendship with Paris Hilton. However, she gained even more fame after the release of a sex tape featuring her and her boyfriend, Ray J, in 2007. Later that year, she and her family began appearing in episodes of the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which aired on E!
Due to its immense popularity, it spawned three spin-off series: Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, and The Kardashians, which took over for the original show on Hulu.
A Brief History of Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian Childhood & Education
Kimberly Noel Kardashian was born on October 21, 1980, in Los Angeles, California, USA, to parents Robert and Kris Kardashian. She has an older sister, Kourtney, a younger sister, Khloé, and a younger brother, Rob. Additionally, she has three stepbrothers: Burton “Burt,” Brandon, and Brody, and two stepsisters: Casey and Kendall Jenner. Kim attended the Roman Catholic, all-female Marymount High School in Los Angeles for her secondary education. After graduation, she started her career in the fashion industry as a personal shopper and stylist. While working as a personal shopper, she met Paris Hilton, who eventually hired Kim as her stylist.
Kim’s parents divorced in 1991, and her father passed away from esophageal cancer in 2003. Her mother married former Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner, now known as Caitlyn Jenner, who later transitioned into a female identity. Kim has mentioned that her mother was highly involved in her life while growing up, making it challenging for her to make independent decisions. Because of this, she felt the need to be completely self-sufficient when she moved out of her parents’ home at 18 to attend Pierce College in California. She did so because she believed she had to. After two years, she decided to pursue a career in modeling and acting instead of continuing her education.
