Khloé Alexandra Kardashian (/ˈkli/; born June 27, 1984) is an American media personality and socialite. Since 2007, she has starred with her family in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Its success has led to the creation of spin-offs, including Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami (2009–2013) and Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons (2014–2015).

From September 2009 to October 2016, Kardashian was married to basketball player Lamar Odom, whom she married one month after they first met.

In 2009, Kardashian participated in the second season of The Celebrity Apprentice, finishing 10th of 16 candidates by being fired by Donald Trump. In 2012, she co-hosted the second season of the US adaptation of The X Factor with actor Mario Lopez.

Kardashian is involved in the retail and fashion industries with her sisters Kourtney and Kim. They have launched several clothing collections and fragrances, and additionally released the book Kardashian Konfidential in 2010. The Dash boutique employees starred in their own short-lived reality television series, Dash Dolls (2015).

In 2016, Kardashian hosted her own talk show, Kocktails with Khloé. She starred and produced health and fitness docu-series Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian.

Early life

Khloé Alexandra Kardashian was born in Los Angeles, California on June 27, 1984 to Kris (née Houghton), a homemaker, and Robert, an attorney. She has two older sisters, Kourtney and Kim, and a younger brother, Rob. Their mother is of Dutch, English, Irish and Scottish ancestry, while their father was a third-generation Armenian American. After her parents divorced in 1991, her mother married 1976 Summer Olympics decathlon winner Caitlyn Jenner (then Bruce) in 1991. Through their marriage, Kardashian gained stepbrothers Burton "Burt", Brandon, and Brody; stepsister Casey; and half-sisters Kendall and Kylie. In 1994, her father garnered public attention as a defense lawyer for football player O. J. Simpson during his murder trial.

Kardashian went to Bel Air Prep, Saint Martin of Tours School, Daniel Webster Middle School, A.E. Wright Middle School, and Montclair Prep. As a teenager, she briefly attended Marymount High School, a Roman Catholic all-girls' school in Los Angeles. She left the high school and enrolled in Alexandria Academy, an alternative one-to-one school, after her sisters' graduations, later saying "there was no reason for me to stay" since she "felt like I didn't have any friends." She graduated with honors a year early at age 17. Before her family reality TV show, Kardashian worked as Nicole Richie's assistant.


2007–2009: Career beginnings

In February 2007, a 2003 tape made by sister Kim Kardashian and her former boyfriend Ray J, Kim Kardashian, Superstar, was leaked, which contributed to the family's rise in popularity. Later that year, Khloé; her mother Kris; her stepparent Caitlyn; her siblings Kourtney, Kim, and Rob; and half-sisters Kendall and Kylie were commissioned to star in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The series and her sister Kim's popularity led to the Kardashians being able to cash in by endorsing products. These include waist-slimming pants, beauty products and Coca-Cola, for which they are paid (as of 2016) $75,000 per post on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

The series proved successful for E!, the network on which it is broadcast, and has led to the creations of spin-offs including Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami and Khloé & Lamar.

In April 2009, Kardashian and her sister Kourtney announced that they were contracted to star in a spin-off that would follow their move to launch a D-A-S-H store in Miami, Florida. The series, Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami, debuted on E! on August 16, 2009. Starting May 29, 2009, Kardashian joined Miami Top 40 Mainstream outlet WHYI for a weekly four-hour talk/entertainment program, co-hosted by 106 & Park's Terrence J. Khloé and her sisters Kim and Kourtney made a cameo appearance in the Season 3 premiere of the series 90210. Kardashian made an appearance in episodes 2, 4, and 8 of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, which premiered in January 2011. On April 10, 2011, Khloé & Lamar, Kardashian's own show with her then-husband, Lamar Odom, debuted.

The winner was offered a cameo appearance in the novel. In July 2011, it was announced that the winning title was Dollhouse. In October 2012, Kardashian and Odom released a second unisex fragrance, "Unbreakable Joy," inspired by the holiday season.

Kardashian's radio show, The Mix Up With Khloé Kardashian Odom, was a "one-hour, commercial-free show where Kardashian will take requests, chat with her celebrity friends, and more during the Mavericks' season while she's in Dallas with her husband Lamar Odom." It aired on January 30, 2012. She later made an appearance on the MTV television series Punk'd with Kelly Osbourne and Miley Cyrus in February 2012. In October 2012, Kardashian and Mario Lopez were confirmed as the co-hosts of the second season of the American version of The X Factor. It was confirmed on April 22, 2013, that Kardashian will not return to co-host The X Factor for its third season. On March 26, 2014, E! announced a Keeping Up with the Kardashians spin-off series titled Kourtney & Khloé Take the Hamptons. The Hamptons follows Kourtney, Khloé, and Scott Disick as they relocate to The Hamptons while the girls work on the New York Dash store plus open a pop-up store.

In January 2016, Kardashian hosted the Kocktails with Khloé pop culture–themed variety talk show, which aired on the FYI cable channel. The show was cancelled after 14 episodes. Kardashian and business woman Emma Grede launched their clothing line Good American in the same year, and made $1 million in sales on the first day. Good American started by selling jeans ranging from size 00 to 24 and has expanded to a variety of clothes including workout clothes, dresses and a maternity collection. Kardashian starred and produced Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian, an American reality television series that premiered on the E! cable network, on January 12, 2017. In December 2018, Kardashian became the brand ambassador of Burst Oral Care & performed corn test on the electric toothbrush.

Public image

Kardashian has received criticism and negative comments which were focused on her body since Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered in 2007. She has been compared to her sisters Kourtney and Kim with Kardashian recalling "I didn't really realize that I was 'the fat sister' if you will until I went on TV and the media started saying that about me. I knew I didn't look like my sisters and I didn't have those shapes, but I didn't think that was wrong". Kardashian physique, notably her face, has attracted significant attention from the media and public in recent years. She has received comments from the public regularly saying she looks "unrecognisable". However, Kardashian has denied having surgery, stating that when she lost weight she lost fat in her face and also credits her make-up artist. She has also been open to using photo editing app Facetune, and stated "Facetune is the best thing to bring to the table. It's life-changing" in February 2016.

In 2001, Kardashian suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident. She went through the windshield and suffered a severe concussion, causing long-term memory loss.

Kardashian has migraines, a condition she has had since she was in sixth grade. As an adult, she became a spokesperson for the migraine pharmaceutical Nurtec ODT, which she has said has helped her.

On October 28, 2020, Kardashian posted a video on social media, revealing that she was diagnosed with COVID-19. In the video, she said, "I suffer from migraines, but this was the craziest headache".

On October 29, 2021, Kardashian announced via Twitter that she and her three-year-old daughter, True, had tested positive for COVID-19. Writing on Twitter, Kardashian said "True and I tested positive for Covid. I've had to cancel several commitments and I'm sorry I won't be able to make those happen. Luckily, I have been vaccinated so all will be ok."

In October 2022, Kardashian revealed she had had a "rare" tumour removed from her face, having initially assumed it to be a zit. She had previously had an operation to remove melanoma when she was 19 years old.


Kardashian dated basketball player Rashad McCants in 2008. The two broke up after seven months in late January 2009. On September 27, 2009, Kardashian married professional basketball player Lamar Odom, who was a member of the Los Angeles Lakers at the time. The couple were married exactly one month after they met at a party for Odom's teammate Metta World Peace. Kardashian removed her middle name and took her husband's surname, becoming Khloé Kardashian Odom. Kardashian adopted a pet boxer named Bernard "BHops" Hopkins, after Bernard Hopkins, the boxer.

On December 13, 2013, after months of speculated separation, Kardashian filed for divorce from Odom and for legal restoration of her last name. Both parties signed divorce papers in July 2015. The divorce had yet to receive final approval from a judge in October 2015, when Odom was hospitalized after being found unconscious. He was in a coma for four days; as he lay in a hospital, Kardashian withdrew her pending divorce petition. In an interview with People Magazine, Kardashian confirmed that they had not reconciled, but the divorce had been withdrawn so that she could make medical decisions on Odom's behalf. Kardashian and Odom's divorce was finalized in December 2016.

In January 2014, she began on-again, off-again relationship with rapper French Montana. They broke up in December that year. Kardashian started dating basketball player James Harden after meeting at brother-in-law Kanye West's Staples Center birthday party in 2015. The two were together for eight months between 2015 and 2016.

Kardashian began dating basketball player Tristan Thompson in 2016. Kardashian gave birth to a daughter, True Thompson, on April 12, 2018. In February 2019, Kardashian and Thompson split. In August 2020, they resumed their relationship after quarantining together during the COVID-19 pandemic. In June 2021, they were reported to have broken up again. In July 2022, it was announced that Kardashian and Thompson were expecting a baby boy via surrogacy. In July 2022, their son was born.


Kardashian supports the recognition of the Armenian genocide and has visited Tsitsernakaberd, the memorial to the victims in Yerevan, Armenia. In April 2021, Kardashian praised President Joe Biden for officially recognizing the Armenian Genocide, thus becoming the first US president to do so.

In October 2020, Kardashian spoke out in support of Republic of Artsakh and Armenians, condemning Azerbaijan's involvement in the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. On October 10, 2020, she spoke on the ArmeniaFund fundraising telethon and urged viewers to donate money to help those impacted by the recent war.


Kardashian is a Christian and reads a daily devotional to herself and her "glam squad" every day. She is interested in theology and enjoys attending church. In April 2015, she was named godmother of her niece North West, by Kim and Kanye, as the child was baptized in the Armenian Apostolic Church at the Cathedral of St. James in Jerusalem.
