She was born and raised in Los Angeles California now she gained a lot of attention initially through her friendship with Paris Hilton.
And then afterwards she got her own TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians and here’s a thing though most Arminians where Kim Kardashian has her roots from their Christian.

And settle there sought a completely new life fast forward to the year 2014 that’s when she entered into the adult film industry.
This is while she was working as an assistant at What burger in Los Angeles she was approached by a customer.
That asked if she ever considered working in the adult entertainment industry and that’s where she became the centre of a lot of controversies.
Because she made several scenes wearing a hijab and that offended the Muslim community. A lot now me and her family are reportedly Catholic.
And she was raised in that religion although she says she no longer is really a practising Catholic because of those scenes actually followed the Hejaz.
And the super-fast way that she skyrocketed to popularity a lot of people thought she was Muslim. But it turns out no 100% false alright guys so that ends this episode on ten celebrities everyone thought were Muslim.
