Kim Kardashian is the reality television star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, an American alpha-socialite, entrepreneur, model, and actress. The Kardashian name first came to public attention due to the O.J. Simpson court case for murder in 1994. Kim Kardashian is the daughter of the late Robert Kardashian who was the friend and attorney of O.J. Simpson. Her party pal friendship with Paris Hilton also help boost recognition for her name. It wasn’t until 2007, the release of a celebrity sex tape with then-boyfriend singer Ray J (William Ray Norwood, Jr., the brother of actress and singer of Brandy) that sky-rocketed her fame. From day to night she became a Hilton-like celebrity. This controversy led to the reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians starring herself, mother and sisters Kourtney and Khloe and the extended family. This later led to various episodes and many appearances on other TV shows. Kim Kardashian along with her sisters own a chain of dress boutiques named DASH, along with a fashion line now carried by Sears. Kim alone now has her own line of shoes, perfume, apparel, DVD workout videos, and much more. Her love life has also been just as busy as her career. Married at one time and later divorced to Damon Thomas from 2000-2004, she was later romantically linked to a number of famous male celebrities such as Reggie Bush, Nick Lachey, Nick Cannon, Kanye West just to name a few. Last year in August 2011, she married NBA basketall player Kris Humphries but filed for divorce 72 days later due to irreconcilable differences. Her personal life is constantly open to the public, media, paparazzi, tabloids and has a fan database that she keeps up with daily on her website.
