Kimberly Noel Kardashian was born on October 21, 1980 in Los Angeles, CA. Kardashian was raised in close proximity to the spotlight; when she was 11, her mother Kris married renowned Olympian Caitlin Jenner; three years later, Kim's father Robert Kardashian, a Hollywood attorney, became involved in the heavily televised 1994 murder trial of O.J. Simpson. Kim Kardashian herself became a figure of public notability to appearances on the reality TV series "The Simple Life" (Fox/E! 2003-07), and then to the circulation of her sex tape with her boyfriend, music artist Ray J. Shortly after the latter controversy in 2007, Kardashian and her family members became the subjects of the reality television series "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" (E! 2007-). The series furthered Kardashian's renown across media, landing her appearances in franchises like "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC 2005-), all the while showcasing more controversial elements of Kardashian's life, including her confrontations with animal rights activists. "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" began to spawn spin-offs featuring Kim and her family members, including "Kourtney and Kim Take Miami" (E! 2009-2013) and "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" (E! 2011-12). In 2011, Kardashian married NBA player Kris Humphries-her second husband after Damon Thomas, whom she married in 2000 and divorced in 2004. Kardashian and Humphries divorced in 2013. The following year, Kardashian married music artist Kanye West. Kardashian next featured on the series "I Am Cait" (E! 2015-16), documenting the gender transition of her step-parent Caitlin Jenner. Between 2013 and 2019, Kardashian and West had four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
