In early the year 2007, a sex tape featuring Kim and her then-boyfriend R&B singer named Ray J was leaked online; Kim Kardashian sued the video’s distributor and later obtained an out-of-court settlement.
The attention helped the Kardashian family land a reality TV series, named Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which followed their daily lives, encompassing Bruce Jenner’s later transition into a woman. The show premiered on the E! channel in October 2007 and was a rating success. All the family members achieved varying levels of celebrity, with Kim—who was known for her good looks and curvy figure—becoming a pop culture phenomenon.
Although some decried her popularity, alleging that she was simply outstanding for being famous, her canny self-promotion—which also encompassed a strong social media presence—helped create a hugely profitable brand. Additionally to endorsement deals, Kardashian was entangled in several business ventures, including a series of fitness DVDs, a credit card, numerous beauty products, and a game app that allowed users to create a celebrity.
In the year 2019, Kim Kardashian launched the shapewear company Skims. Her enormous popularity also led to film roles—she made her big-screen debut in Disaster Movie of the year 2008—and different TV appearances. She notably starred in the spin-off series Kourtney and Kim Take New York (2011–12).
In the year 2020 Kim Kardashian and other members of the family signed a production deal with the streaming service Hulu, as well as the following year Keeping Up with the Kardashians ended. In the year 2022, the reality series The Kardashians started airing on Hulu.

Notably, in the year 2018, Kim Kardashian helped secure a presidential commutation for Alice Marie Johnson, a nonviolent drug offender who was serving a life sentence. In the year 2020, the TV documentary Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project aired.
Kim Kardashian was a fixture in the tabloids, and much attention was devoted to her relationships. In the year 2011, Kim Kardashian married basketball player Kris Humphries—the ceremony was videotaped and later broadcast on E!—but 72 days later she filed for divorce, which was finalized in the year 2013.
In the year 2012 Kim Kardashian began dating rapper Kanye West, and their daughter, North (“Nori”) West, was born the following year. In May in the year, 2014 Kim Kardashian and West were married. The pair had a second child, son Saint West, in the year 2015. Their daughter Chicago West and son Psalm West were born in the year 2018 and 2019, respectively, via a surrogate. In the year 2021, it was declared that Kim and Kanye were divorcing.
Kanye West was born on June 8, in the year 1977, in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.), American producer, rapper, as well as a fashion designer who parlayed his production success in the late of the year 1990 as well as early the year 2000 into a career as a prominent, critically acclaimed solo artist.
West, the child of a photographer and former Black Panther father, and a college professor mother grew up in Chicago as well as attended Chicago State University for one year before dropping out to pursue a career in music.
Early on he ascertained his considerable abilities as a producer, contributing to Jermaine Dupri’s album Life in 1472 (1998) before relocating to the New York City area, where he made his name with his production work for Roc-A-Fella Records, particularly on rapper Jay-Z’s album Blueprint (2001).
West’s skillful use of accelerated sample-based beats soon made him much in demand as a producer, but he strived to be allowed to make his recordings (partly because of the perception that his middle-class background refuted his credibility as a rapper).
When he finally released his debut solo album, The College Dropout of the year 2004, it was massively prosperous: sales soared, as well as critics gushed over its sonic sophistication as well as clever wordplay, which blended humor, faith, insight, as well as political awareness on songs named Through the Wire and the gospel-choir-backed named Jesus Walks.
The latter cut won a Grammy Award for the best rap song in the year 2005, and West also got awards that year for best rap album and best rhythm-and-blues song which is one of the songwriters of Alicia Keys’s named “You Don’t Know My Name”
Abetted by his flamboyant personality, West quickly rose to stardom. His second album, Late Registration the year 2005, recounted the commercial success of his first—with many hit singles, encompassing “Diamonds from Sierra Leone” and “Gold Digger”—and earned West three more Grammy Awards.
He also earned attention for his widely named assertion that the federal government’s slow reaction to the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans in the year 2005 demonstrated that U.S. Pres. George W. Bush “doesn’t care regarding black people”—a comment that Bush later characterized as one of the terrible moments of his presidency.
As his career as a performer took off, West continued to work as a producer, with credits encompassing songs by such high-profile artists as Nas, Mariah Carey, and Beyoncé. He also founded the record label named GOOD Music. His third release, Graduation of the year 2007, produced the hit singles “Good Life” and “Stronger” and garnered him four more Grammy Awards.
In the year 2008 West released 808s and Heartbreak, which is an album that dwelled on feelings of personal loss as well as regret. Its sound differed radically from his earlier releases, as West chose to sing (with the assistance of a vocal production tool named Auto-Tune) rather than rap his lyrics.
West spent much of the late years of 2009 rehabilitating his image. He had rushed the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards, preempting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for best female video, to announce that “Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.”
Video footage of the incident quickly took off viral on the Internet, as well as West found himself vilified in the media. A series of apologies, some of them seeming as a stream-of-consciousness narrative on West’s Twitter feed, were soon pursued.
