Kim Kardashian, whose full real name is Kimberly Noel Kardashian West, is best known for the American reality TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians. She is now one of the most well-known celebrities in America and around the world and has an incredibly large fan base.
Kim was born in LA to celebrity attorney Robert Kardashian and mother Kris Jenner. Her father was of Armenian origin, although the family had lived in America for generations. The mother is of European origin, but the family had also been settled in America for a long time. Kim Kardashian has three full siblings and two half siblings. She is the stepdaughter of 2015 trans woman Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner, to whom her mother was married since the 1990s).
Her siblings Kourtney, Khloé, Robert and half-siblings Kendall and Kylie have all become famous and well-known thanks to the reality TV show, which revolves around the glamorous life of the family. All members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan are multi-millionaires, successful entrepreneurs and public figures in America.
Kim grew up as a well-heeled LA City girl and used to hang out with Paris Hilton and other it girls. Her own notoriety shot up, rather unintentionally, through the release of a sex video. The video showed her with the musician and her then-boyfriend, Ray J. Vivid Entertainment bought the rights to the film without her knowledge and released it. A lawsuit against the company, which Kim Kardashian withdrew after paying $5 million, went unanswered. However, Kardashian used this seed capital cleverly and began to systematically market herself and her family.
The reality TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians has aired in the United States since 2007, the same year the sex video surfaced. Since then, the series, which has been a hit far beyond the United States, has been continuously broadcast and produced. Earning around $80,000 per episode, it’s no surprise that none of the Kardashian family is poor. On the contrary, everyone, especially Kim, has already been able to earn millions.
But that’s not enough. Kim Kardashian is not a lazy person and she knows exactly how to show off her skills to make even more money and brand her name.
Together with Kourtney and Khloé she founded the fashion company “DASH”, which specializes in launching and promoting new fashion brands. Own fashion lines have already been published and are selling very well. As is the perfume that Kim sells through the same company, under the name KKW Fragrance. Everything Kim touches turns to gold it seems. On the day it went on sale, the perfume generated sales of 10 million dollars.
No wonder, considering Kim Kardashian’s reach as an influencer and model. Over 162 million people follow her on Instagram alone. For a single advertising campaign, Kim receives around $500,000.
Hardly anyone markets themselves as well and professionally as Kim. Not only does she live her private life publicly, accompanied by cameras and visible to everyone. If you can’t get enough of her, the hard-working businesswoman even had an app programmed for you. Kim Kardashian: Hollywood is one of her strongest draws. Every year she generates several million dollars with the app.
Since Kim Kardashian has not had the most classic of all careers, it is not entirely clear that special highlights should be underlined. Personal highlights are certainly the births of the four children she had with rapper Kanye West.
In her career as a business woman, the foundation and success of the fashion label DASH was definitely a right decision and the success proves her right.
Kim has quite a number of valuable possessions. Not only do they own a house in Beverly Hills and a villa in Bel Air, they also own seven luxury cars, including a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Maserati Gran Turismo Convertible and a Rolls Royce Phantom Series II.
- “You make mistakes, but I have no regrets. I’m the kind of person who takes responsibility for it and deals with it. I learn from everything I do. i work very hard There’s a lot that’s happening in my life.”
- “I would describe myself as absolutely ambitious.”
Kim Kardashian was mugged and robbed in her apartment in Paris in 2016, where she was staying for Paris Fashion Week. The robbers stole jewelry worth $9 million. Kim was threatened, tied up and locked in the bathroom.
This could also be a reason why she is currently committed to law. As she announced in 2019, she is currently working in a law firm in order to be able to pass a bar exam. She wants to give people with unjustifiably long prison sentences new perspectives. She was inspired to do this when she was invited by President Trump to attend a prison reform briefing in 2018.
