Kim Kardashian Bio
Kim Kardashian (Kimberly Noel Kardashian) was born on October 21, 1980 in Los Angeles, California. Her father was Robert Kardashian, an attorney who gained national recognition as O. J. Simpson’s friend and defense attorney during Simpson’s murder trial. Kardashian has two sisters, Kourtney and Khloé, and one brother, Robert. From her mother’s marriage to Bruce Jenner, Kardashian has stepbrothers Burton Jenner, Brandon Jenner, and reality TV star Brody Jenner, step-sister Casey Jenner and half-sisters Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner.
In 2007, porn company Vivid Entertainment bought the rights to a leaked sex tape Kardashian had made with singer Ray J, whom she was dating at the time. Kardashian sued Vivid for ownership of the tape, but in April 2007, she dropped the suit and settled with the company for $5 million. With her new found fame, Kardashian began appearing in the social scene, and by the end of 2007, bagged her first reality TV show. ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ on the E! network stars Kardashian, along with her two sisters, mother, brother, half-sisters and stepfather.
Kardashian has appeared in the films ‘Disaster Movie’ and ‘Deep in the Valley,’ besides cameos in television shows ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ ‘90210’ and ‘CSI: NY.’ She was one of the 13 participants on the seventh season of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and was the third contestant voted off the show. Kardashian has appeared on numerous magazine covers and posed nude for the December 2007 issue of Playboy. Given her popularity on Twitter, Kardashian’s tweets can fetch up to $10,000 from sponsors.
In October 2010, Kardashian began dating NBA player Kris Humphries of the New Jersey Nets. The couple married on August 20, 2011, which was recorded for a much hyped two-part TV special showing the preparations and the wedding itself that aired on E! in early October 2011. After 72 days of marriage, Kardashian filed for divorce from Humphries on October 31, 2011, citing irreconcilable differences. Since the divorce, it has been widely reported that the wedding was staged and was a ploy to generate money. Kardashian remains one of the highest-earning reality stars.
