1. Kim in High School:
Kardashian grew up around Hollywood royalty and counted socialite Paris Hilton and Lionel Ritchie’s daughter Nicole among her friends. Kardashian maintains that the image of her as a lazy rich girl is false. Her parents raised her with the full knowledge that she would have to make her own way in life without their money. She has stated that she was cut off from parental financial assistance when she was eighteen. Kardashian did not pursue higher education after graduating from high school. A few years after graduating from high school, Kardashian worked as a stylist and was often seen shopping with Hilton during her time as Hollywood’s “it girl.” After the death of their father, Kim and her two sisters, Khloé and Kourtney, opened a clothing boutique in the wealthy city of Calabasas near Los Angeles.
