is Kim Kardashian married ?
Kim has been through three marriages. She married music producer Damon Thomas in 2000, when she was 19 years old. The couple married on the spur of the moment and divorced three years later. Kim later admitted to being high on ecstasy at the ceremony.
After only seven months of dating, Kim announced her engagement to NBA player Kris Humphries in May 2011. On August 20, 2011, the wedding was taped for a special two-episode arc of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The marriage only lasted 72 days, as the couple filed for divorce on October 31, 2011, almost a year after they began dating. Many speculated that the romance was really a plan for the reality show, and the relationship garnered a lot of flak.
Kim began seeing rapper Kanye West in April 2012, while still legally married to Kris Humphries. On Dec. 31, 2012, Kanye and Kim announced that they were expecting their first child together, eight months later. On June 15, 2013, she gave birth to their first child, North West. Kanye and Kim were formally engaged by October of that year, when he proposed to her in an extravagant, rom-com-worthy gesture after renting out San Francisco’s AT&T Park to get down on one knee.

Following their success with surrogacy, the couple decided to have their fourth child the same manner, and Psalm West was born on May 10, 2019.
controversial moments :
Kim has released several tracks as a musician, yet she is best recognised for her success on television and social media. Kim released a single and a music video for the song “Jam (Turn It Up)” in December 2010. Hype Williams directed the video, and future husband Kanye West makes a cameo appearance. This is thought to be how their romance began.
Kim sought to prove to the public that her famed behind was authentic by getting an x-ray of her derriere on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2011. She was weary of the constant rumours that her famous backside was paid for, not self-made. To highlight the contrast, her sister Kourtney received an x-ray of her breast implants the same day.
Kim’s stepfather declared to the public that she was a transgender woman and was legally changing her name in a 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer in April 2015. Caitlyn Jenner made her public debut on the cover of Vanity Fair Magazine in June 2015. During the two-part programme titled Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce, Kim was one of the first members of the family to completely support Caitlyn’s transition. Kim was named to Time magazine’s list of the 100 most important people of 2015, alongside Lee Daniels, Tim Cook, and Kanye West.
Kim was robbed at gunpoint while attending Paris Fashion Week with her family in November 2016. A bunch of thugs forced their way into Kim’s Paris hotel room and tied her up and gagged her before stealing about $10 million in jewellery. Production on Keeping Up with the Kardashians was halted for many weeks after the news broke, and Kanye famously walked off stage during a concert in Queens when he received the news.
Kanye West sparked outrage when he announced his candidacy for President in July 2020. He told supporters at a campaign rally that he and Kim discussed having an abortion when she was pregnant with their first child, North. The rapper then launched a barrage of tweets directed at Kim and her family, referring to his mother-in-law as “Kris Jong-Un” and claiming he was seeking to divorce her. Kim responded publicly by standing behind her guy, citing his bipolar diagnosis. “Anyone who has this or has a loved one who has,” she said, “understands how immensely complex and painful it is to get.” After Kanye publicly apologised for hurting Kim, the two reconnected in Wyoming a week later.
