Khloé Alexandra Kardashian is an American media personality, socialite, and model. Since 2007, she has starred with her family in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Early Life Of Khloé Kardashian
Khloe Alexandra Kardashian was born on June 27, 1984 to Kris and Robert Kardashian in Los Angeles, California. At the time, her mother was a homemaker and her father an attorney. She has a younger brother, Rob, and two older sisters, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian. Their parents divorced in 1991. Kris went on to marry Olympian Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn Jenner.
In 1994, Khloe's father was thrust into a media firestorm as a lawyer on the defense team of O.J. Simpson during his murder trial, which proved difficult for the entire family.
Kardashian attended a Catholic all-girls school in Los Angeles, Marymount High School. However, she decided to leave school and enroll in homeschooling after both of her sisters graduated and she felt isolated. She earned a GED at age 17.
In 2001, Kardashian suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident in which she went through the windscreen and suffered a severe concussion, causing long-term memory loss. At age 18, she lost her father Robert to esophageal cancer, just two months after he was diagnosed.
In 2007, Khloe and her family became the focus of a reality television series called "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." It follows the drama, exploits, and professional pursuits of the Kardashian family. The series' success has led to spin-offs including "Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami", which documented Kourtney and Khloe's move to Florida to open one of their DASH clothing stores, and "Khloé & Lamar". "Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons" followed Khloe, Kourtney, and Scott Disick in their move to the Hamptons to open the New York DASH store along with a pop-up. It lasted one season and ten episodes.
Khloe also competed on "Celebrity Apprentice" in 2009.
Career And Other Ventures
Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney run DASH clothing store. They also design jewelry and swimwear. The popularity of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" has led to many product endorsement deals, with the sisters getting paid per post for ads they post on social media. The sisters have collaborated on books together, including "Dollhouse" and "Kardashian Konfidential", released in November 2010. Kardashian and her now-ex husband Lamar Odom released Unbreakable, a unisex fragrance, in February 2011, followed by their second fragrance, Unbreakable Joy. "The Mix Up With Khloe Kardashian Odom" was a radio show hosted by Khloe where she took requests and interviewed celebrities. It aired January 30, 2012. Khloe was named Brand Ambassador of Burst Oral Care in December 2018.
In March 2012, Kardashian and her sisters Kourtney and Kim were named in a $5 million class-action lawsuit against QuickTrim, the weight loss supplement they endorse. The complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, accuses the Kardashians (along with QuickTrim's manufacturer; the retailer GNC; and others in the sales and marketing chain) of false and deceptive marketing of the diet aid. The plaintiffs, hailing from several states, brought claims under their respective states' consumer protection laws.
Khloe was arrested for driving under the influence on March 4, 2007. She reported to jail to serve time for a violation of probation on July 18, 2008. She was ordered to enroll in an alcohol treatment program and faced 30 days in jail. However, she was released less than three hours after booking due to overcrowding.
Kardashian was sued by a woman who claimed to have been assaulted by her and ten other people outside of a night club in December 2009.
In September 2009, Kardashian married LA Lakers basketball player Lamar Odom one month after they first met. However, after a few rocky points toward the end of their marriage, she filed for divorce in December 2013. Two years later, Odom was hospitalized after he was found unconscious in a brothel in Nevada. Kardashian withdrew her pending divorce petition so that she could make medical decisions on his behalf. Their divorce was finalized in December 2016.
Kardashian has a daughter, True, with Tristan Thompson. She gave birth at a hospital outside of Cleveland, Ohio on April 12, 2018. While she was pregnant, footage had surfaced showing Thompson with other women in clubs. He admitted to cheating on her while she was pregnant, and they split in February 2019.
In 2012, allegations appeared that Robert Kardashian was not Khloe's biological father. Rumors began to circulate that Khloe was the product of an extramarital affair while Kris was married to Robert. The ordeal, including a paternity test that put the rumor to rest and proved Robert was indeed Khloe's father, was recorded for an episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."
Kardashian has appeared in PETA's "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" ads. She is interested in theology, a practicing Christian who enjoys going to church, and is said to read a daily devotional to herself and those around her each day. She is the godmother to her niece North West.
Khloé Kardashian Real Estate
In 2014 Khloe bought Justin Beiber's house for $7.2 million. She bought the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom house which sits on 1.3 acres soon after her marriage to Lamar Odom ended. The home was previously owned by Eddie Murphy who bought the home for his ex-wife Nicole following their separation.
Khloe put the 11,000 square-foot home under extensive renovation. She floated the home for sale off-market in May 2020 for a bit under $19 million.
