The Kardashian-Jenner family has become synonymous with Hollywood scandals. After being in the spotlight for over a decade, they, of course, are going to have their fair share of media blunders. From Kylie and Kendall Jenner‘s T-shirt snafu to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s epic feud with Taylor Swift and Khloé Kardashian‘s leaked bikini photo drama, it seems like controversy has a way of finding the first family of reality TV.
While there are tons of Kardashian scandals to reminisce over, we have to thank the one that started it all. In 2007, Kim made her on-screen debut with her ex-boyfriend Ray J in a sex tape that instantly went viral. Although she tried to fight the release of the tape, the businesswoman in her came to a settlement. When asked on the first episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians why she made the film in the first place, she famously said, “Because I was horny and I felt like it.” Although it’s definitely not Kim’s proudest moment, she turned sour grapes into fine wine.
Today, the bombshell has a full-blown empire consisting of beauty products, apparel and even criminal justice reform. Luckily for her outspoken family, she has taken them along for the ride.
Unfortunately, not everyone in her brood was made for a life in the spotlight. Brother Rob Kardashian openly discussed his struggles with mental health and weight gain on KUWTK until he became a complete recluse. Luckily, he’s doing better than ever lately, working on his health and even making a few appearances on the final season of their hit series.
His strides come with the help of his famous fam, who always has each others’ backs in the face of adversity. Rob used to “want to stay out of the limelight, but his mom and sisters, especially Kim, fully support[ed] his progress,” an insider told In Touch in October 2019. “It’s [been] an uphill battle, but Rob is determined to show all the haters that he’s not down for the count.” It looks like he reached his goal!
