Kim Kardashian was born in Los Angeles to mum Kris and dad Robert in 1980. She has two sisters, Kourtney and Khloé, a brother named Rob as well as half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

Her parents divorced in 1991. Robert, an attorney who was part of OJ Simpson’s defence team at his infamous murder trial, passed away following a battle with oesophageal cancer in 2003.

In her teens Kim went to Marymount High School and worked for her father’s company.

In 2000 she married music producer Damon Thomas but it didn’t last and they divorced four years later.

The shapely star worked as a personal stylist and shopper and opened a boutique called Dash with her sisters.

She hit the headlines when a sex tape of her and then-boyfriend Ray J was leaked in 2007.

Later that year, Kim starred alongside her family in the first series of their reality TV programme Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The hugely successful show spawned several seasons and propelled Kim Kardashian to stardom.

In May 2011 Kim got engaged to NBA player Kris Humphries and they married three months later.

Sadly, after just 72 days of marriage, Kim filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. It was finalised in June 2013.

In 2012 Kim started dating rapper Kanye West, who she had been friends with for years. She became pregnant and in June 2013 their daughter North West was born.

Kanye proposed to Kim on her 33rd birthday and they married in Florence, Italy in May 2014. She changed her name to Kim Kardashian West.

In June 2015 Kim and Kanye revealed that they were expecting their second child.
