1. O.J. Simpson Is Kim’s Godfather
The football star and Simpson's late ex-wife, Nicole Brown, were good friends with the Kardashians. According to reports, Simpson was even there at the hospital when Kim was born. Kim recalled when her father, Robert Kardashian, was a part of Simpson's "dream team" defense. Kim said in an interview with Rolling Stone that she was there in the courtroom during the O.J. Simpson trial and saw her father sit next to O.J. while her mother, Kris Jenner, was strategically stationed across the room with the Brown family. She said, "It was surreal, with Johnnie Cochran and Robert Shapiro and all these guys having meetings at my dad’s house. I definitely took my dad’s side. We just always thought my dad was the smartest person in the world, and he really believed in his friend."
2. An Item of Elizabeth Taylor’s Jewelry Now Resides in Kim’s Collection
Many memorable KUWTK moments have been sparked by Kim Kardashian's penchant for displaying her extensive jewelry collection. In 2011, Kim allegedly paid $65,000 for three bracelets that had belonged to Elizabeth Taylor. The diamonds and jade in the bracelets are priceless, but their emotional significance makes them much more valuable. As the most expensive collection ever sold in a single evening, the fashion and jewelry items set a new benchmark for success.
