Her father, Robert Kardashian, was known as a defense lawyer for her godfather, football player O. J. Simpson. Her step-father is Olympic decathlon gold medal winner Bruce Jenner.
Kim Kardashian was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She first gained media attention through her friendship with Paris Hilton, but she received wider notice after a 2003 sex tape with her former boyfriend Ray J was leaked in 2007.
Later that year, she and her family began to appear in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Its success has led to the creation of spin-offs including Kourtney and Kim Take New York and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.

However, on April 19, 2013, 536 days after Kardashian’s initial divorce filing, she and Humphries reached an undisclosed divorce settlement, avoiding a trial. The divorce was legally finalized on June 3, 2013.
