She was born on October 21st, 1980 in Los Angeles, California, to parents Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner. The star has 5 siblings- Kourtney, Khloé, Rob, and half-sisters, Kendall & Kylie Jenner.
Even before her recognition, she always dreamed of become the star she is today. Her late father was an Armenian- American lawyer and represented OJ Simpson in the OJ Simpson trial. However, her mother (who is businesswomen), was friends with the late actress- Nicole Brown Simpson, who was murdered in 1994. This caused controversy between the family and the public. Kris and Robert divorced in the late 80’s and her relationship with Olympic winner Bruce Jenner (now known as Caitlyn Jenner) was also well known.
How she started

Keeping Up with The Kardashians is a reality tv show, showing the families everyday life. It first aired in 2007, on E! and is on going with almost 20 seasons. Though it is one of the most watched shows, it also gives fans a firsthand glimpse of drama, releases, relationships, breakups, and transitions. It did so well, that the family made several spinoffs such as “Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons”, ”Kourtney & Kim Take Miami”, and “Dash Dolls”.
