Kim Kardashian is an American media personality, socialite, and reality television star with a net worth of $65 million. She is the daughter of Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner. Most people are familiar with Kourtney Kardashian because of her appearances on the smash television show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Infancy and Adolescence
Kourtney Kardashian was born on April 18, 1979, in Los Angeles, California, to Kris and Kim Kardashian. Kim Kardashian is the eldest child of Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian, who passed away in 2011. Kim, Khloé, and Rob are her three younger siblings.
Her parents separated and divorced in 1991. Her mother married Bruce (now Caitlyn) Jenner in the same year she was born. She also has two younger half-sisters, Kendall and Kylie, who are the result of her mother’s marriage to Caitlyn Jenner and her father’s divorce from her mother.
Her father, Robert Kardashian, first came to public notoriety in 1994, when he served as one of O.J. Simpson’s defense attorneys during his trial for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, which garnered national attention.
Kourtney attended Marymount High School in Los Angeles, which was exclusively for girls. Following graduation, she relocated to Dallas to pursue a degree at Southern Methodist University.
Her junior year was spent at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona, where she earned her bachelor’s degree. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Theatre Arts from the University of California, Los Angeles. Nicole Richie and Luke Walton were classmates of hers at the University of Arizona.
“Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive” was the first reality show on which Kourtney starred, which aired in 2005. A sex tape of her sister Kim’s encounter with her then-boyfriend Ray J in 2003 was made public by the media in 2007. That sex tape, titled “Kim Kardashian Superstar,” was the catalyst for her (and her family’s) meteoric rise to celebrity.
Later that year, Kourtney, her mother Kris, her stepfather Bruce/Caitlyn, and her siblings Kim, Khloé, Rob, Kendall, and Kylie were all cast in the E! reality series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” which premiered on the network in 2007. The series has been a huge success, and it is still broadcasting in 2020.
It also generated a slew of spin-off television programs.
Kourtney and her mother created a children’s clothing business named Smooch in Los Angeles and New York City, which continues to thrive today. They own and operate the apparel boutique D-A-S-H, which can be found in Los Angeles, New York City, and Miami, which they founded with their mother Kim Kardashian.
When Kourtney and her sisters launched their clothing line for Bebe in 2010, it was met with widespread acclaim.
Kourtney made her acting debut on the ABC serial opera “One Life to Live” in late March of this year. Kardashian grew up watching the soap opera, and landing a role in it had been a longstanding goal of hers. She took on the role of an attorney. Critics were critical of her performance, and she received unfavorable feedback.
In 2018, she collaborated with Kylie Cosmetics to create a beauty collection dubbed Kourt x Kylie.
Posh is the name of Kardashian’s new lifestyle website, which launched on March 5, 2019. The Kardashian-Jenner clan announced that her lifestyle company Poosh would be presenting a virtual wellness event in late August 2020.
It will take place on Saturday, September 26, and will include a variety of workshops, activities, and conversations that are intended to engage and inspire readers of the Poosh comic book series.
On their various social media platforms, Kourtney, Khloé, and Kim promoted the weight-loss pill Quick Trim. When QuickTrim was accused of fraudulent and deceptive marketing in March 2012, the sisters were identified as plaintiffs in a class-action lawsuit worth $5 million, which was filed on their behalf.
Observations on My Own Personal Life
Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian began dating in 2006. They met at a home party hosted by Joe Francis, a friend of theirs. Throughout the course of the show’s production, the couple has been in and out of a relationship on a regular basis.
Mason Dash Disick, the couple’s first son, was born on December 14, 2009, to Kourtney and Scott. Mason’s birth was videotaped and broadcast on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” during the fourth season, which aired in October.
After the birth of their second child, a girl named Penelope Scotland Disick, Kourtney gave birth to their third child, a son named Reign Aston Disick, on Mason’s fifth birthday (on July 8, 2012, she gave birth to Penelope Scotland Disick). In 2015, the pair announced that they will be divorcing each other.
In December 2016, Kourtney began dating Younes Benjamin, a considerably younger Algerian boxer-turned-model who is significantly younger than her. They separated in August of this year. She subsequently began dating the then-20-year-old actor and model Luka Sabbat, better known as Luca Hall on the television show Grown-ish. After a few months, they decided to call it quits.
This year, Kourtney brought Younes Benjamin, a 26-year-old model, as her date to the Kardashian/Jenner family Christmas celebration.
