The Kardashians have become synonymous with controversy and for good reason. The world wants to know everything about them from the names of their boyfriends to the names of their pets.
Here are 10 things you probably did not know about them-
1. The Big Divorce
Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian Sr. split after Kris had a three month affair with a man ten years her junior. After the divorce, Kris moved in with the man she cheated on Robert with. But within months she walked in on him having sex with another woman, and the relationship ended.
Out of all the kids, Kourtney took the divorce the hardest. In fact, she wore black for five straight years after they split.
Talk about being dramatic?
2. The Jackson Affair
Kim’s first boyfriend was none other than Michael Jackson’s nephew, TJ Jackson. She still has a box filled with mementos from their relationship. The box contains prom photos, a fake chicken foot used as a prop in a Michael Jackson video, chocolate from Neverland, a confidentiality agreement and the box of chicken nuggets from their first date at McDonald’s!
3. The 72-day Marriage
While Kim’s “72 day Marriage” to Kris Humphries was mocked relentlessly, her maternal grandmother, MJ Shannon, actually holds the record for the shortest Kardashian marriage – her first marriage in 1952 lasted only two months.
In fact, Kris and Kim’s marriage was much longer legally, as the divorce proceedings dragged on for two years. Kim was just two months away from giving birth to North West when the divorce was granted. Had it not been finalised by the time she gave birth, Kris would have been the presumed legal father.
4. Khloe’s Prophecy
The night before Kim’s wedding to Kris Humphries, Kris Jenner asked Kim: “Do you want out? You’re not yourself.”
Family really knows best!
5. What’s in a name?
Apparently Kendall was named after the ken doll – Barbie’s plastic boyfriend, because the family would joke that her father Bruce (now Caitlin Jenner) used to look like a Ken doll.
Should we be calling her Barbie now?
Kris Jenner actually founded her own church with her good friend Pastor Brad Johnson in 2012. It’s pricey to be a member though – everyone must donate $1,000 (£600) a month or 10 per cent of their incomes. That’s some costly confessions.
7. Blonde Moments for the Jenner sisters
Kendall once had an embarrassing moment at a spelling bee. She was to spell “swimming'” the right way, but she ended up spelling it, S-M-I-W-W-I-N-G. “I thought I nailed it, and then I obviously didn’t. And then everybody laughed at me and made fun of me for like the next three days,” she said.
Well Kylie was not to be left behind, during a school presentation, Kylie was so nervous that she said “My favourite food is soccer and basketball.”
Who could tell the sisters get nervous by watching them on the ramp?
8. Money Matters
Kylie Jenner is the richest among all siblings. According to Forbes, at 21, Kylie is the youngest self-made billionaire. It does make sense given her wildly successful makeup company, her reality TV show spin-off, and her social media brand deals!
9. Who ate the chocolate? Not the Jenners
Kendall hates chocolate ice-cream! In fact, on an episode of Keeping Up With Kardashians she revealed that she never had a Hershey’s Kiss.
Kylie, on the other hand, hates chocolate cake so much that on her 18th birthday her $3000 cake was made without a trace of chocolate.
Seriously Kylie? You had no problem eating soccer!
10. Not good enough?
Despite her riches, fame and glamour, Kim Kardashian has been denied a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. According to the spokesperson, it’s reserved for actors, singers and those nominated for an award, not reality TV stars – ouch!
From their looks to their relationships, there is always a keen eye on the
Kardashians and while they might be controversial they sure are entertaining.
