Kimberly "Kim" Kardashian West is an American television and social media personality, socialite, fashion designer, businesswoman, model, and actress. Her father was known as a defense lawyer for football player O.J. Simpson, who is Kardashian's godfather, and her step-father is Olympic decathalon gold medal winner Bruce Jenner.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Kardashian 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 were commissioned to star 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. In 2010, Kardashian was reported to be the highest-paid reality television personality, with estimated earnings of $6 million.

In August 2011, Kardashian married basketball player Kris Humphries in a widely publicized ceremony. After 72 days of marriage, she filed for a divorce, which was finalized in June 2013 with an undisclosed settlement. Source: Wikipedia
