Paste: Kimberly Noel Kardashian West is 33—nine years older than me. She is the child of Robert Kardashian, who was famously a defense attorney in O. J. Simpson’s trial. He died of esophageal cancer in 2003. In 2007, when Mrs. Kardashian West was 27, after beginning a relationship with a new man on the end of an old marriage, a sex tape of her and her new boyfriend was leaked. It was released without her consent and distributed by Vivid Entertainment, entitled “Kim K Superstar.” She dropped her suit with Vivid Entertainment, after spinning this betrayal into a multi-million dollar career.
