Kim Kardashian-West was born on October 21, 1980 in Los Angeles to mom Kris Jenner and dad Robert Kardashian. Her parents divorced in 1991 and her father passed away in 2003 of esophageal cancer. Her mom was then married to Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) for 22 years. Kardashian-West has three siblings – Kourtney, Khloe, and Rob – and two half-sisters – Kendall and Kylie. She wed for the first time in 2000 at the age of 19 to music producer Damon Thomas, but the union ended in 2004. She bounced back with flings with Ray J and Reggie Bush. A sex tape with Ray J put Kardashian-West on the map and turned her into a household name. She went on to marry NBA player Kris Humphries in an elaborate televised wedding in August 2011, but split only 72 days later. Then, sparks flew between Kardashian-West and musician/designer Kanye West. The power couple exchanged vows on May 24, 2014 and have two children together – daughter North (born June 15, 2013) and son Saint (born December 5, 2015). Besides being the queen of reality TV on her family’s E! series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” which premiered in 2007, and its spin-offs, Kardashian-West is a fashion icon. In partnership with sisters Kourtney and Khloe, she owns a boutique named Dash and has put her name on several fragrances. She also competed on Season Seven of “Dancing With the Stars” with pro partner Mark Ballas. Before stepping into the spotlight, Kardashian-West worked for then-pal Paris Hilton as her closet organizer. The star was victim to a robbery and held at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room in October 2016.
