Kim Kardashian West and Paris Hilton have been best friends for almost all their life. They have known each other since their childhood. No doubt, their friendship has seen ups and downs, but we’ve seen both these stars grow throughout the years.
Kim has now and again mentioned in her interviews about how Paris has been a prominent part of her life as well as her career. She gives rightful credit to Hilton’s experiences, advice and all her help. She is extremely thankful for the mentorship Paris provided her leading to a successful career.
Kim Kardashian West also called KKW, wasn’t always the sensational diva that she is now. In her initial days, she worked as a stylist for friend Paris Hilton. Her stardom took off to raise chatter in the market after her leaked tape with Ray J in 2007. Kim made a couple of appearances on Paris’s famous show “The Simple Life” helping her with her wardrobe.
Kim had Paris’s back
Formerly, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie were considered to be “BFFs”. IT was none other than Kim who stepped up to be by Hilton’s side when she broke up with Nicole. These new BFFs in town used their companionship to gain as much publicity they could. KKW said this in one of her interviews: “We’d go anywhere and everywhere just to be seen. We knew exactly where to go, where to be seen, how to have something written about you. All you had to do is go to this restaurant, or this party, talk about whatever you want to talk about, it would be in the paper the next day.”
Back in 2007, Paris was arrested and sentenced a 45-day jail life after driving with a suspended license. Kim mentioned the incident in one of her interviews said “You have to support people that you love.”
Did Kim and Paris break up?
Although in 2008, Hilton made a statement about Kim’s butt: “like cottage cheese stuffed in a trash bag”, to which Kim had to say: ”Paris who?” It seemed that year 2011 was also a low in their companionship, when Kim told reporters: “We don’t really talk. As I always say, everyone comes into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. And she was in my life for a long time … There comes a point in life where you just grow apart and you realize you’re not as similar as you thought. And I never run into her anywhere. Isn’t that so weird?”
KKW and Paris back together! And stronger than ever!!
It was in 2015 when Hilton came ahead and dismissed the feud praising KKW. She said: “She’s always had a great work ethic like me and she’s always been determined. And that’s what it’s all about. I’m so proud of her. When she’s at home, she’s very normal like anyone else with a glamorous life. She’s chill; she’s so sweet”. They officially united at a Christmas Party in 2016, when Paris attended the famous annual Kardashian family Christmas party. The pictures of the night were all around the social media. When Kim sent one of her fragrant chocolate boxes to Paris, she went on to social media to show her support and gratitude for the gift. She also walked as a model dressing up exactly like KKW for Kanye’s fashion line.
In May 2019, Hilton released her music video “Best Friend’s Ass” featuring KKW. How can we forget “Keeping up with the Kardashians”?!! In one of the recent episodes, Kim talked about filming of her best friend’s music video saying ” I really would wanna do anything for her. She literally gave me a career. And I totally acknowledge that.”
Hopefully we’ll see one of the episodes of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” where these ladies celebrate their trips, careers and lifelong bond!!
