8 Reasons People Love To Hate Kim KardashianPublished on November 20, 2015. Updated April 23, 2018
Kim Kardashian is undeniably winning at the fame game, with her name in the headlines pretty much every single day. From her fashion choices to her flawless makeup, her famous family to her wildly publicized relationships, it seems like there’s never a lack of material when needing your Kim-fix. All of this popularity and coverage has masses of fans drooling over her and others gagging. Here are 8 reasons people love and hate (and love to hate) Kim Kardashian.
8. Her Lifestyle
Check out Kim Kardashian’s Instagram or Twitter – or, like, any media outlet in the world – and you’ll be sure to catch a glimpse of her luxury filled and lavish lifestyle. Regularly riding in the back of limos, appearing on red carpets, or just hanging around her multimillion dollar mansion, Kim Kardashian seems to always be up to something fabulous. The fans love to follow her lavish lifestyle and drool over everything she has and does, while others are jealous, turned off, or just completely uninterested. Either way, Kim is living and loving her lavish lifestyle.
7. Her Fortune
With an estimated $85 million of her very own (yes, you read that right, 85 million whopping dollars) Kim can afford that lavish lifestyle. Making her fortune through personal appearances, product endorsements, clothing lines, fragrances, as well as her paycheck from her family’s television shows, Kim is certainly having no trouble raking it in. Another reason for some to love and admire her, and just another reason for others to despise her and be jealous of her, Kim can comfort herself knowing that whether you love her or hate her it’s all helping add to her bountiful bank account.

6. Her Fashion
Kim is as famous for her fashion choices as she is about any of her other headline-grabbing aspects. No stranger to red carpets and magazine covers, you just never know what came is finishing up wearing. Low cut, sheer, camouflage, or cut out, she likes to take risks and stand out when it comes to dressing up. Some love her choices, some hate her choices, but people are definitely always talking about her choices.

5. Kim and Kris Humphries
Back in 2011, Kim Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries announced their engagement to the world. Throughout the engagement and following marriage that lasted a mere 72 days, there were rumors that it was all a publicity stunt. Those rumors raged even harder when the marriage dissolved so quickly, with Kris being apparently totally blindsided by the entire thing down to the fact that he himself began to believe it was all a ploy on Kim’s part (he even took her to court because of it!), and the fact that Kim apparently made $18 million off of the endorsements and TV rights to her wedding only helped to fuel the fire.Tinseltown / Shutterstock.com
4. Kim and Kanye
While still legally married to Kris Humphries, Kim began dating long-time friend and famous rapper Kanye West. The two eventually married in a lavish ceremony and are now the parents to two beautiful already super famous babies (North West, of course, and the little one on the way). There was no way that a relationship between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would NOT gain massive public attention, constantly grabbing headlines and sparking up this social media sphere with every single thing that they do. For Kim’s fans, the relationship is a dream come true, offering endless titillation. For those who haven’t had enough of the Kardashians, it’s just another reason that they’ve had too much.

3. Kim as a Mother
The world had gotten used to Kim Kardashian fashion icon, Kim Kardashian the red carpet staple, Kim Kardashian the TV reality star, and Kim Kardashian the product endorser, but then came along Kim Kardashian the mom. Adoring her little North – often popping pictures of the little cutie on Instagram dressing up and playing with her cousin Penelope – and soon-to-be mama to West baby number two, Kim has showed the public an entirely new aspect of her famous self.

2. Her Fame
When you ask Kardashian here what exactly it is they hate about the Kardashians, you’ll often hear “What are they even famous for anyway?” Well, mostly they’re famous for being famous. The Kardashians are famous for being wealthy and fabulous, rich and living a life that many people are enthralled by (the average person doesn’t spend their days in a mansion or on yachts or going to premieres, so it’s kinda cool to get a behind the scenes peek from someone who gets to do that kind of thing all the time). While it bothers some, it entertains others, and that’s why Kim Kardashian continues to be famous.

1. Her Family
Kim certainly isn’t alone when it comes to Kardashian fame. Her sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, along with stepsisters Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner, brother Rob Kardashian, and stepbrothers Brandon and Brody Jenner, along with her mother Kris and her step-parent Caitlin, the Kardashian Jenners have all reached a certain level of fame together, which makes them one of the most loved and hated families around and whether you love them or can’t stand them, it doesn’t look like Kim and the gang are going anywhere anytime soon.
