Kim Kardashian may be one of the most controversial celebrities in Hollywood, but the reality television star has built a multi-million-dollar empire on past scandals that made them famous in the first place. Today, Kim is the richest Kardashian in her family, even overtaking former billionaire and younger sister, Kylie.
While her past actions have caused a public outcry, Kim Kardashian has slowly evolved over the years into an activist who has inspired others with her actions, and it may have something to do with motherhood and wanting to set a good example for her kids. Here's why fans think that Kim Kardashian may have changed for the better.
A Controversial Past
The Kardashians first rose to fame in the early 2000's all thanks to Kim's close friendship with celebrities like Paris Hilton, but it wasn't until 2007, when a shockingly intimate video of Kim and her then-boyfriend Ray J got leaked, that the family started becoming a household name.
They were offered brand deals, photoshoots, and even their own reality television show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which is now on its 18th season and gives fans a glimpse into the family's extravagant and scandalous lives.
For years, the Kardashian sisters have built a multi-billion-dollar brand based on their looks and glamorous lifestyles. Take younger sister Kylie, for example, who came under fire for getting cosmetic procedures while she was still underage.
While the authenticity of their online personas is questionable, no one can argue the business savvy behind the Kardashian brand which is worth billions of dollars today.
But over the years, fans have come to love Kim and her evolution from a scandalous celebrity into a lawyer who is fighting for prison reform is nothing short of inspiring.
One Reddit user pointed out all of the setbacks the makeup mogul has faced over the years, yet, she has overcome every obstacle and continued working towards her goals, which has motivated others to work hard and stand their ground no matter what.
Other fans chimed in on the thread by saying that had it been anyone else in Kim's place, they would have cracked a long time ago under the immense pressure and scrutiny that the reality star has been subjected to.
Furthermore, many of Kim's past critics are now of the opinion that she is a better role model for her fans than the other Kardashian sisters. Besides running a huge business empire and being a mum to four young kids, Kim is also studying law and fighting for a change in the American criminal justice system.
